County teams back into the swing of things

(Continued)

Compliment looks to contend for the No. 1 slot and is a welcome sight for the Warriors who need an influx of talent and experience on such a youthful squad.

“Garrett has shown well in the junior golfer circuit and should be key for us this year,” Siddall said. “Perry should have a nice season as it’s his second as a full-time varsity player.”

Compliment, Perry, England, and Miller should make up the top four slots for the Warriors and one of 15 freshmen that came out will man the final spot.

The best way to improve is to be battle tested and to that end the Warriors will play in seven major tournaments throughout the season.

Siddall is realistic in his goals, saying that he hopes the Warriors advance a player out of the sectional and finish in the top half of the conference as a team.

Players looking for that opportunity include seniors Jake Canaday, Drake Whickee, and Johnny Will, junior Jackson Lance, and sophomore Austin Ferris.

“We, as a team, have to get the most out of each day,” Arthur said. “Having such a short time to prepare and a short season, every day counts. We talk a lot about ‘get better every day’ and that will be our motto for the season.”

Plainfield

After ending last season 12-1 with a fifth-place finish at sectional, Plainfield had two players advance through the regional and into the state tournament. Former Quaker Rylan Porter finished fourth at the state tournament while freshman Johnny Gulley gained valuable experience for the remainder of his high school career.

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.
