SPORTS: Law Golf Team Heads To The First Tee
By Renee Lynch – Staff Reporter
The golf team is looking for success in their 2016 season and is excited to hit the course.
“I’m very excited about this years team,” head coach Mr. Koorejian said.
Law has plenty of talent, coming from both upperclassmen and underclassmen.
“We should have a pretty good team this year,” senior Matt Marino said. “We didn’t lose anyone from last year and we have new kids on the team who have potential for the future.”
Talented players include Marino, captain Jake Mola (junior), and captain Max Caserta (senior).
“Mola, a three-year starter and a junior captain, should be a top scorer this year along with his four year starter co-captain Caserta, with help from Marino and newcomer Brian Hayes (junior),” Koorejian said.
The season will start on April 6 against Career Magnet at Law’s home course at Orange Hills Country Club.
The boys have worked hard in the off season, attempting to improve their weaknesses.
“I personally need to work on making my swing more consistent to have a successful senior year season,” senior John Ralston said.
Law will face cross-town rival Foran on April 13 on Foran’s home course. Foran will return to Law’s home course on Monday, May 2, for another rivalry match.
“I think that we will fair better against Foran this year considering they graduated three of their top six players,” Petrie said. “I’m hoping to go out and sweep them this season.”
With some additions to the team, Lawmen golfers plan to have a great season.
“We didn’t graduate any seniors last year and we have additions to the team, so underclassmen will really be playing a part this season,” Petrie said.
Hard work and dedication will give the team success to achieve their goals.
“We’re looking to have a great season,” Caserta said. “We might be able to make states as a team this year, considering we have the same team as last year, plus some new freshman.”
The golf team has underclassmen talent with potential for promising seasons to come in the future.
“We have five sophomores and two freshman that can develop into future leaders of the team,” Koorejian said.
The team’s seniors are excited about their last high school golf season.
“I don’t play golf to win, I play to challenge myself everyday because on the course it’s just you and yourself,” Marino said.
