The MHS varsity golf team had a great season last year, ending with a record of 13-3. The team went to the HAC Championship and ranked 11th in the State. With a new season approaching, the Buccaneers are looking to their new players to step up and lead them.
“Last year was a highlight for me, we had a great season,” said Head Coach Jesse Parsley.
The Buccaneers were one of the 13 teams who qualified for the HAC Golf Tournament last season. Although most of the players from last years team have graduated, both Ethan Reichhold and Jarred Geyer are returning for another round.
“Jarred is a really great player, he’s consistent,” said Parsley. “This year, Ethan has the opportunity to do well and we need him to have a breakout year.”
“We had a mature team last year, which made it easier,” said Jarred Geyer. “This year we have some new players and it’s a matter of learning the basic skills and practicing.”
The Buccaneers have been hard at work preparing for the upcoming season. Their first game of the season is on Tuesday, March 27, against Laurel High School. The game is going to be held at the Seaford Country Club and will begin at 3:30pm.
“It should be a good match up,” said Parsley. “We played well against them last year.”
Last season the Buccaneers played against Laurel at the Shawnee Country Club in Milford. The Bucs defeated the Bulldogs 168 – 202. The Bulldogs ended the season with a record of (1-12).
“I think Dover is going to be a challenge,” said Parsley.
The Bucs narrowly avoided a lose against the Senators last season and were able to come ahead with a final score of 172-187. The Dover High School Senators finished last season with a record of 11-4. The Buccaneers will face the Senators on Thursday, March 29 at 3:30pm.
“It’s going to be a close match,” said Joseph Ventura. “We just have to stay focused and keep practicing.”
