(Avoca) The AHST Boys and Girls golf teams began practice Monday and the first meet of the season for AHST will be April 3rd.
The AHST Boys golf team returns several key pieces from last year’s team. They’ll be led by two seniors who have a lot of varsity experience. Todd Schmidt was a state qualifier last year while Ben Jacobsen came up just short of qualifying for state.
Outside of Schmidt and Jacobsen, Jake Larsen, Pat Rowe, Dalton Thies, and John Quist return while newcomers Dillon Kelley, Nate Eggers, Shay Campbell, and Shawn McCarthy are expected to vie for varsity spots according to coach Pete Schmidt.
After not having a team last year, the AHST girls golf team has ten golfers out this season. The group will be made up of mostly freshman who competed in the junior program last year.
Even though the golfers on the girls team don’t have any high school varsity experience, coach Schmidt says that doesn’t mean it will be a rebuilding year.
