  The MVNU golf teams are looking forward to their upcoming spring season.

     

      Head coach Mike King is pleased with the team’s growing confidence in their abilities.

     

      “They’re starting to feel like they actually belong in the top part of the league,” King said.

   

      Captain Sam Romine says the team looks “pretty solid.”

     

      “We have four pretty solid players,” Romine said. “Hopefully momentum carries over from last spring.”

     

      Last spring, the team finished second to Taylor University, the top team in the Crossroads League.

     

      Romine says the team has a good shot at a league title this year.

     

      “I’m just excited to get back and play,” he said.

     

      Among the team strengths, King said, is the ability to stay calm under pressure. 

      The team doesn't “have a tendency to...

          Jaron Brust, Chandler Cook, Andrea Martin, Danielle Shaver and Brittany Smith have been together from the start.

         Fellow seniors Zach Arck, Seth King and Nate Spahr have made their ways onto the team within the last three years.

         All eight will be hitting the course together for the last time this spring. While they can all look forward to continued time on the green, they know they will miss their teammates and competition of college matches.

         Smith leaves with the lowest individual round record (76) in MVNU women’s golf history.

         Shaver will cap off 10 years of competitive golf experience at the end of her MVNU career.

         “I will miss playing competitively,” she said.

         The Cougars will host the MVNU Spring Classic on Saturday at Chapel Hill Golf Course.

The Lady Cougar golf team is readying for another round.

The Lady Cougars made great progress last year, and look to continue that progress in the 2016-17 season.

“A big goal for the Lady Cougars this year is to have the top four averages be in the 80s,” coach Mike King said.

Senior Brittany Smith has done just that and has landed herself in the record books with the lowest single round in MVNU history with 83. She also has three more of the lowest rounds with a score of 84 and two rounds of 86.

Fellow senior Andrea Martin has also made MVNU history during her MVNU career with four rounds of 87.

As a group, last year’s team members landed themselves in the record books with four of the seven lowest team rounds.

King said the women have the ability to do even more this season.

“One of the biggest keys for the women’s success will be for them to become more consistent from round to round,” King said.

The Lady Cougars return all six of their golfers from last year and are joined by freshman Olivi...
