Golf comes out swingin’

Big things are expected from the IHS golf team this season.
Coach Doug Kerr said “improving the team’s short game has been on the list of priorities in practice and early rounds.”
Due to the recent weather, finding time for quality practice was a challenge in early April. On a brighter note, Kerr said he “believes the team can certainly do better than last year’s 11th-place finish,” and “would love the team to win state.”
“Everybody certainly works hard, and it’s great to see how much everyone has improved,” coach added.
Reigning 4A state champion Kaden Macha, a junior, scored first at Independence on April 10, and the whole team placed second there overall.
“The team played well, and this is a pretty good start to the season.” Macha said. “If we work hard and practice hard, we should have a successful year.”
JV player Gage Tomlinson is also eager for success this season, noting that he has already been improving.
“In fact,” the sophomore said, “I passed my personal best, my previous being 29/30, so you can really see that I’ve come quite a ways.
“I’ve been working hard to be the best I can be.”
