Golfers qualify for Districts
Updated: Oct 9, 2020
Fall sports started off a little shaky, but the Golf team has taken full advantage of being back on the green.
This season, three students qualified for Districts including senior Brock Smith and sophomores Jillian Fidler and Benjamin Feeman.
For the past four years of his high school career, Smith has qualified for districts.
Jillian Fidler has also qualified for districts each year of her high school career.
“I was happy to qualify for Districts again. My hopes for the match is to shoot in the 80s and go to day two of the tournament,” said Fidler.
Smith had the lowest average during the regular season at 81.75. Fidler and Feeman followed close behind with 85.75 for Feeman and a 91 for Fidler.
To qualify for the district match, girls need to break an average of 100 and boys needed to finish inthe top 13 at the league meet.
The district meet will begin today Friday at Briarwood Golf Course in York. The top finishers advance to the second day of the event on Saturday.
“Qualifying for Districts was a huge goal of mine to start the season,” said Feeman. “I am very happy that I was able to pull it off especially being a sophomore whose only been playing golf for less than two years.”
“For the district match I am mainly hoping to shoot under 80 on the first day which will give me a solid chance to play on the second day,’ said Feeman. “Then if I make a good run on the second day I can get a good placing in the event which I will be very proud of myself with.”
Feeman put in a lot of practice this summer to improve his game.
“All summer to prepare for the season I’ve been playing and practicing every day with one or two days off a month, 5-8 hours of golf a day for the most part,” he said. “A lot of putting and chipping which really got me to the place where I am now. So from now on I’ll be doing the same coming out to the course with the mindset to get better everyday.”
