2014 Boys Golf Preview by Chard Reid

Our first tournament of the season will be on Saturday, April 12 at Rock Hollow Golf Club in Peru, IN.  As many of you know, we have four players returning from last year’s state tournament roster, as well as a couple juniors and a couple freshmen who could see some significant time on the varsity roster this year. 

In fact, freshman Kevin Stone, who was named the Mountain Dew Junior Tour Player of the Year for the Boys 13-14 Division, will be playing number four for us on April 12.

In addition, we have four seniors on the varsity roster this year:  Jake Brown (committed to play at Indiana University), Peter Ciravolo, Jon Hicks, and Alec Imaizumi.

This is easily the deepest and most talented team that I have ever coached, and I am really excited to see the young men on this team mature both on and off the course throughout the season.  I have been extremely impressed with the work ethic of every young man on this team, and as a group, they have demonstrated very clearly that they are willing to practice like champions every day.

Go Greyhounds!

Student Athlete Tip of the Week

"Promoting education-based athletics in Indiana." 

In a pack of dogs, there are usually three groups.  While each group has its own role, no group is considered superior.  In other words, they are a team and they work together.

Those in front, referred to as alphas, give direction and offer protection and leadership. Those in the middle keep order and ensure that things run smoothly.  Those in the back are the cautious ones, and they alert the others to potential threats.

As a player and teammate, it's important to know where you fit with your team, according to the pack mentality.  Recognize that it's just as important to find people who are happy being in the back as it is to identify strong leaders.  

If a team can maintain a balance of these respective personalities, it goes a long way in promoting success and cohesiveness.  Where do you fit?
