As the golf season rolls on for the Panthers, they look to capture their first tournament win of the season on Wednesday, April 9. The Panthers tied for second place with Rockhurst on Monday.
The tournament was held in Columbia, Missouri as a major tournament for the surrounding high schools. Park Hill South was led by senior Nick Sobba, who shot a 73 which was the best on the team,
“ I felt like I was in the zone that day. It was just one of those matches where every shot was going my way and I took advantage.”
Despite the solid outing from South’s number one golfer, the team was unable to capitalize in their first major tournament.
However the team looks to get back on track during their match this Wednesday. The Panthers will have a little home field advantage because the match will be hosted at the National, which gives the players a better familiarity with the course.
“ It definitely helps. We know the course and we know to play some holes different than others. It is also nice for our parents to be able to come out and support us. All of these things give us a mental edge and golf is a mental game,” said senior Luke Becker.
While for some people missing school for any reason, would be fun, however for our senior golfers it is very difficult.
It is hard to stay caught up, while missing so much school. Especially being a senior and trying to finish things up for college, but I think it is worth it,” said Trey Brown.
As school winds down, the golf season is only beginning. Reaching state is any teams goal and it is no different for the Panthers, but for our seniors it will be hard for them to stay focused on not only golf but school as well.
