Fall golf looks promising with three strong sophomore golfers returning to Sauk Valley. All-conference standouts Cody Tiesman and Evan Eissens will be returning. Their spring performances proved their ability to overcome adversity to lead their team despite course and weather conditions. Combine this with Pat Petrosky’s ability to step up as he did at the regional three day qualifier for nationals and lead the Skyhawks to a day one 2nd place finish and overall 5th at the Region IV championship. “We have three college golfers who can compete at this level. Two years running, the Arrowhead Conference sent teams to nationals and this last year one finished 5th. Some of the top players at nationals play right here in our conference.” Freshman Logan Rascher will join this seasoned threesome to form the core of the Skyhawk effort in the fall. We are all looking forward to a successful fall season. Two former Skyhawk golfers are now settling in at Northern Illinois University. Former captain and 6th place finisher at the Highland “36”, Caleb Bradley, will be studying psychology and Anthony Yarbrough studying international business relations.
The 2013 fall team will be fun to watch and composed of area athletes, so check your schedule and then check ours. Thanks for your support!
