Golf Teams’ Bid for States Looks Promising

Keeping up very well with the success of many of the Milford High’s spring sports teams, the varsity golf team has dominated in most of its matches this season.

The Bucs (6-2) have only suffered a loss to Caesar Rodney and a five-stroke defeat to Cape Henlopen, and most of their wins have been lop-sided. The Bucs have been led by seniors Michael Pyne, Will Naumann, Mark Kosirowski and Brandon Nelson, and juniors Ethan Reichold and Jarred Geyer.

Kosirowski believes that the solid team play will enable the Bucs to make states as a squad. “Our team didn’t lose many people, but a lot of other teams lost a lot of seniors around the state,” said Kosirowski.

This year the Bucs have not had trouble filling in for last year’s loss of senior Jarret Sproul. First-year golfer Pyne, who played baseball for the past three seasons, stands as one of the several golfers who have stepped in.

Meanwhile, Kosirowski believes that the loss to Caesar Rodney taught the whole team that “if Milford wants to be an elite team, we must play as good as Caesar Rodney.” The team has been doing its best to live up to this expectation and hopes the current winning streak will carry them through to the end of the season. Kosirowski believes the team “should win out.”

                With the end of the season fast approaching, the Bucs need to make sure that they keep on track, especially for their match against Red Lion which will be played on Wednesday, April 20. Kosirowski believes that these will be the toughest golfers that they will face until the Henlopen Conference and state tournaments on Tuesday, May 24 and May 31 and June 1, respectively.
