The Bulldog golf team is ready to challenge for another district title under the leadership of Tyler Wilson. Four district titles in a row proved to be pretty sweet for Wilson and his team that included four standout seniors but this year’s team wants to make it number five. Those seniors lost to graduation included Kiley Bryan, Avery Evans, Steve Spence, and Aaron Williams.
This year, the Bulldogs will have Ric Gable, Will Johnson, and Tanner Mulder representing the senior class. The junior class will be Henry Knowles, Hunter Mitchell, Tristan Mulder, Ethan Sapp, Dante Sonaglia, and Nick Walker.
Sophomore class is small but ready to make an impression with Corey Akerson and Will Saunders. The freshman class is looking for success from Ben Knowles, Austin Malloy, and John Mitchell.
The Lady Bulldogs will be represented by Jordan Sapp and Annika Beebe.
Coach Wilson is optimistic about this year’s team, “They’re eager to learn, they have been playing on their own which is always a good thing. The three seniors have been on these courses before and that always is a plus. The juniors are pretty good and I think we are going to be competitive.”
As for the girls, Wilson says, “They like the game, and show promise of being ready to compete.”
The Bulldogs will open up August 23 in Holmes County with a 3:30 tee off before returning home to Indians Springs Golf Course on August 25 with a 12 noon tee time.
