New season, new focus for the Knights as they battled Tri High at Highland on an unusually warm night in early April, defeating the Titans with a final score of 173-206. Jake Shue led the way for the Knights with a commanding even-par performance of 36 on 9 holes garnering medalist honors for the match.
“Jake went beast-mode for us shooting that low of a score. I challenged him in the off-season to set the goal and expectations for the team, and he is leading the way for this team to have great success. We just have to sustain it and keep that focus throughout, not just this match,” stated 2nd year coach Matt Haynes.
The Knights also had a strong performance from freshman Alex “Chico” Beatty with a 43, good enough for 3rd best overall score for the day. Kyle Woolums and Dylan Goble rounded out the scoring with 47 apiece, while Nick Laird shot a 55.
“We are pleased to get the victory, as we should, but this is one of those moments, as always in golf, where we need to step back and say, where can each of us get back 2-3 shots, and how are we going to improve each match to achieve our goals for the season,” stated Coach Haynes.
Logan Daulton shot a 53 to lead the JV squad, while Nate Irwin shot a 63, and Garrett Abney shot a personal best 58. Bailey Moistner, recovering from an injury, recorded an excellent qualifying score of 43, and should be back in action Thursday against Centerville.
The Knights return to action for an early season epic clash with Centerville 4/11/19 at 4:00pm. Come on out and support your Knights!
