Berkshire golfers thrown to the fire

With just two players returning from last season, the Berkshire golf team has been thrown to the fire this season.

Head coach Dave List, entering his 24th season with the Badgers, will lean on his returning starters to carry the team until the newcomers gain valuable experience and the confidence to compete at the high school level.

Seniors Matt Hart and Jacob Zeiler both are in their third season of varsity golf.

Hart averaged 52.8 strokes per nine holes and 108.1 on 18-hole rounds. Zeiler came in just behind Hart as he averaged 53.1 and 109.9.

“Matt has the ability to finish as an all-conference golfer. He needs to be more consistent with his game,” List said. “Jacob also needs to be more consistent, especially his approach shots and putting.”

The rest of Berkshire’s lineup will be filled by inexperienced players.

Juniors Joe Czekaj and Troy Hornak both play soccer for the Badgers but will split their time with the golf team. Freshmen Mario Romagni, Brian Spangenberg, and Preston Garlin round out the roster.
