Milford Golf Looking Towards Successful Season


Sean Marraffini

As the weather warms up, the Milford High golf team hits the links and will try to improve on their second place finish in the Conference tournament from last season.

In order to have that success the team will look to some of its returning members to play some good golf. Of the total six players returning from last season, 3 of them are seniors and 3 of them are juniors.

Amongst those making returns from last season are seniors, Brandon Nelson and Mark Kosiorowski and newcomer Mike Pyne. From the junior class, head coach Jesse Parsley looks for Jared Geyer to have a strong season

“I’ll need Brandon, Mark and Jared to pick up right where they left of last season, playing great golf.”  Parsley said.  “Mike is really excited about being on the team and has been playing a lot of golf and practicing hard.”

Not only on the scorecard are Nelson and Geyer looked to shine but also in terms of leadership “I have spoken with Brandon and Jared before the season started and we discussed our potential and things we need to do to make it there (the golf post season tournament). So far, they have really led the way in practice.” Parsley said.

In hopes of getting consistent golfing, the Buccaneers will hope to be even more of a contender in 2011. Henlopen North is lead by a host of teams in, Caesar Rodney, Sussex Tech, Dover and Cape Henlopen.

“We hope the weather is good so we don’t have to play against the elements and that our golfers keep their scores low”, Parsley said. “We can’t afford to have multiple golfers have bad days.”

The golf season is in full swing on March 22nd when the Buccaneers take on Delmar.

“After last season’s success it showed me that we can play with most teams in our Division. I am really looking forward to matching up with the top teams in the conference. Hopefully, in a winning fashion.” Parsley concluded.
