PREVIEW: SHS golf team opens season Monday
The Superior High School boys golf team didn’t lose anyone off a team that finished in fifth place at last year’s WIAA regional tournament at River Falls Golf Course.
Leading a stable of returning golfers for head coach Dan Schulz is Kiefer Eales, who advanced out of the River Falls regional with a score of 83. His season ended the next week with a 92 at the Wild Ridge sectional.
Other key golfers returning include Scott Archambeau, Ethan Buhr, Taylor Burger, Grant Sorensen, Dayton Podvin and Cayden Laurvick.
“This year’s team strengths include depth, dedication, positivity, togetherness and competitive nature of the group,” Schulz said. “A few things we’ll need to work on include consistency, improved mechanics and course management/planning strategies.”
Schulz, who is in his ninth season as Superior’s coach, sees the Spartans battling for a Lake Superior Conference championship with Hermantown and Duluth Marshall.
The Spartans open their season at 9 a.m. Monday at the Hudson Invitational.
SPARTAN SPIN: Superior’s assistant coach is Brad Larson. … Superior will host two meets this season at the Nemadji Golf Course — the Nemadji Invite on May 3 and a Lake Superior Conference meet on May 17.
