Top Golfers

Quinn Wilcox, News Editor

The Warrior Golf season is well underway, and top varsity golfers Connor Neighbors ’19 and Alex Slattery ’18 have been leading the way with confidence.  

When asked about how he and his teammate Neighbors have been playing, Slattery responded, “We’re playing better than last year. If I beat him by one, he’ll work hard to beat me by one next time. We push each other and make each other better while also maintaining a good friendship.”

The Warriors took second place in their most recent meet at Pheasant Ridge Golf Course in Cedar Falls. They were edged out by Cedar Falls while beating Iowa City West and Dubuque Hempstead.  

“We’re seeing improvement throughout the season though. Even if our results aren’t as good,” Slattery said about the overall team performance.

The Warrior Golf team still has a number of matches to play before the season ends.  On Sep. 19 the Warriors travel to Beaver Hills Country Club in Cedar Falls.  Following the meet in Cedar Falls they also have meets on Sep. 25 and 28 before the state tournament on Oct. 6-7.

When asked about how he believes the team will perform at the state tournament Slattery said, “well we lost Frank which was huge because that was always an easy par at least.  I think we’ll be able to hold our own”

The complete varsity lineup is Alex Slattery 18’, Connor Neighbors 19’, Whit Heafner 19’, Ben Skogman 19’, Tate Peterson 19’’, Will Sturms 18’’, Kyle Neighbors 21’.
