The boys golf team placed third at the Spring Hill Invitational on Thursday, April 19.

Freshman Jack Casburn finished in third place individually after shooting a 78 at the Sycamore Ridge Golf Course.

“Jack did really good,” freshman Ben Hadden said. “As a team, we are doing really good this year compared to last year. We’ve dropped about 50 team shots and we’ve had a couple players that have dropped 20 off their scores.”

Hadden, who also played in the tournament, enjoyed the course but thought the day was challenging overall.

“It was really windy; I couldn’t really control [the ball],” Hadden said. “This course was a lot better than the other tournaments we’ve been at…but the greens were really fast and I couldn’t make a putt.”

Looking at the team’s success, Hadden says the team needs to focus on continuing their good performances.

“Right now we’re working on consistency,” Hadden said. “Just being able to keep it under control for all 18 holes.”
