Area golfers hit the links

It might have seemed like the high school golf season was never going to arrive, however as the temperatures have began to rise and the water hopefully receeds it looks like teams will be finally hitting the links.


Washington has been the most successful area team in the last several years with squads that have qualified for regional each the last two years.

The Hatchets are led by seniors Cameron Lancaster and Tyler Stoll, and junior Clay Hatton. Each of the three were medalists last season and all three shot in the 70s at sectional.

“We have a lot of experience and it should really help us this year,” said WHS coach Bill Ricke. “We should have several players right around par and several in the middle 70s and that is what we are going to expect and hopefully they will expect of themselves.”

Sophomore Connor Brown should earn his second varsity golf letter, while freshmen Max Lancaster and Reid Neff will also compete for varsity matches.

“We have the regional course as our home course and that is the step you need to take, so we would be foolish to not take things very seriously,” added Ricke.

Freshman Matt Stephens, J.J. Brown and Austin Niehaus round out the team.

“Some of those kids have not played a lot of golf, but are all good athletes and know how to compete,” added Ricke.

Washington opens Thursday at Christmas Lake.

The Washington Catholic team will again be coached by Morris Petty and he also returns just about everyone off last year’s team.

The Cards are led by juniors Ethan Wichman, Jon Mitchell, Brandon Strange, Brian Brown and sophomore AJ Sellers also return. New to the team is junior Eric Zipperle.

“Ethan, AJ and Brian have all been playing well this spring,” said Petty. “I think if we over achieve a little, we could compete at sectional.”
