Ballard Fall Sports Preview: golf team focuses on winning
By Chris Foster, Intern
On the golf course, coach Casey McMullin feels good about his team, which includes several returning athletes. Led by team captain Michael Day, the Beavers’ golf squad looks to have a strong season.
“I feel good about the team and hope to be competitive for our matches,” McMullin stated.
The Beavers are fielding a rather large golf team, with about 25 athletes competing. And while McMullin is focused on winning, he also wants his team to develop some long lasting habits.
“My goal is to keep everyone, and get everyone that wants to play some instruction to prepare them to play golf for life,” he said. “Even players with very little experience improve quickly, and I'm trying to get them good habits going forward.”
One match in particular that McMullin is looking forward to is against the Roosevelt team.
“We always have a good rivalry with Roosevelt,” McMullin said. “I have a lot of fun with their coach Daniel Montzingo.”
