The NS golf team finished their season on Oct. 6 with some hard work and fantastic results.
The team finished second in region and moved on to perform well at the state competition in Soldier Hollow with a ninth place overall finish. NS Golfer Garrett Christensen felt great about their performance.
“[It was] one of the best seasons in North Sanpete golf history,” Christensen said.
Golfer Joseph Garlick placed seventh individually out of all one-hundred and two participants.
“I could have done better,” Garlick said, “and I would have had a chance for first.”
This was a very big year for our golf team as this is the first time in a long while that our team moved on to the second day of state.
The State tournament had a par of 72 and the golfers of NS scored as follows: Joseph Garlick 77-68, River Dillman 75-74, Garrett Christensen 84-85, Jayce Burningham 80-89, Tyler Hadley 90-88 and Gavin Cox 91-92.
The team has taken the time to realize their strengths and weaknesses of this season and plan on fixing these mistakes in the near future. Garlick feels that he has recognized these imperfections and will move forward to improve on them.
“My biggest weakness is probably just with my mind,” Garlick said.
But the NS Golf team has big plans to strengthen themselves and come back better next year. “As a team we can definitely take region and all varsity players can place in the top ten,” Christensen said.
