The Warrior golfers played their second match of the year on Wednesday March 28 at Paradise Pointe. Both Varsity and JV teed off at four on the front nine to compete against St. Pius X.

The Warrior’s Varsity lineup had changed from the week before. Trace Walters, sophomore, Brock Cook, senior, McKinley Hopkins, sophomore, and Nick Hartman, senior, still played Varsity but Nicholas Nielsen made his freshman debut on the team.

Nielsen, who missed the first match, started the year out with a 48. Although it wasn’t what he wanted to shoot, he got a glimpse of how challenging Varsity can be.

“It was difficult,” Nielsen said. “I just had to stay focused and not let the other guys get in my head.”

While Nielsen battled back through the round, Hartman turned in a matching 48, the same as his score from the previous week. Cook lead the Warriors with a 40, two shots away from being the match medalist. Following Cook, Hopkins and Walters turned in matching 41’s to beat both of their scores from last week.

Although the team posted good scores, they did not win the match, St. Pius X beat the Warriors by one shot.

“We had a good varsity team today, with everyone in the 40’s,” Walters said.

As with any loss, the players thought of mistakes that they made that could’ve helped them win.

“I would’ve shot a 39 had I not blown it past the hole on nine,” Cook said.

The Warriors are still working out some problems but it’s early in the season. As for the tournament, the rainy forecast postponed the Warrior’s first tournament, leaving the Warriors without a chance to see how they lined up with other teams. Their season will continue on Monday, April 3 in Maryville.

“It has definitely been a good start to the season,” Hopkins said. “But the weather hasn’t been so good.”
