County teams back into the swing of things

(Continued)

That should bode well for Plainfield as coach Jon Utterback believes the Quakers “should be able to compete with some of the better teams in the state.”

While the Quakers do not have any seniors, Gulley’s experience, combined with quality play from Ryan Schuld, Dylan Holsclaw, Chris Heckman, Grant Beanblossom, and Kyler Nichols, should result in some wins.

Utterback knows what the success of his team is riding upon.

“Our key will be with the four/five golfers on our team,” he said. “Wins and losses will come down to those kids.”

Utterback said he believes the county tournament and Muncie Central Invite will help the young Quakers gain valuable experience headed into the postseason.

Another goal this year for the Quakers is a Mid-State Conference title.

“We have some solid schools in our conference,” Utterback said. “It’s one of the better ones in the region. If we’re playing well, I think we can win it. But it’s golf, so it depends on the day.”

Tri-West

The Bruins’ golf team finished seventh in the Sagamore Conference a year ago, fifth in the county, and 11th at sectional. Tri-West graduated two seniors from that squad.

“We have a lot of work to do to be successful,” Tri-West coach Tom Pemberton said.

Seniors Garhett Cook, Brandon Bischof, and Eric Schmidt return to aid the Bruins in their hopes of bettering this season.

“Cook is a top player from last season who will need to step up and lead the team,” Pemberton said.

With so many uncertainties heading into the year, Tri-West needs to focus on improvement.

Pemberton was realistic when addressing the situation Tri-West faces as each of the three aforementioned golfers averaged a bit over 45 last year.

“That’s obviously not going to be competitive against better teams, so we have our work cut out for us,” he said. “A key factor for success for us will be work ethic and setting realistic, attainable goals to improve.
