Greensburg — The South Decatur boys golf team has seen limited action in the first couple weeks of the season, but the Cougars expect to find their stride in time to meet their tournament goals.
“We really haven’t performed to our ability, but I look for us to get back into form soon,” said head coach Josh Grossman.
South lost just one senior to graduation in Dustin Huff, and three current seniors will assume the upperclassman roles. The Cougars welcome back seven letterman, including just one sophomore.
Grossman likes South’s chances to advance to regional as a team, but the ultimate goal is to capture a conference championship. He expects scores in the high 30s and low 40s on a consistent basis throughout the spring.
If South maintains those season averages individually, a Mid-Hoosier Conference championship is realistic.
“This is my best potential as a team, if we can get everyone in that performance,” said Grossman. “Our ultimate goal is to win the MHC. We’re keeping our eyes focused on conference.”
Returning for the senior season are Adam Fry, Andrew Wullenweber and Evan Wiggins. Juniors returning as lettermen are Brayden Helms, Seth Niese and Nick Schwering, while Cory Hastings is the lone sophomore returning letterman.
Sophomores joining the team are Kyle Carder and Dylan Myers, while freshmen Jeffe McClintic, Jacob Johnson and Logan Owens are first-year South golfers.
Grossman said he likes the composition of the team.
“We have a good team rapport,” he said. “We get along really well. They work pretty well together.”
