As seasons change once again, Lebanon High School prepares for its 2020 spring sports season in various ways. Sam Godby will be the head coach of LHS Boys Golf for this upcoming season.
In the next couple of weeks, the golf team is planning to practice at a heated driving range to kick off the pre-season. It is important to get the club back in the players hands after a long break during winter, according to Coach Godby.
“We will have some meetings where we will go over a couple of new rule changes to the game of golf, so when the season arrives there is no confusion and we are ready to go,”said Coach Godby.
There will be a decent number of playersreturning this year, but as a whole, the team is a pretty young team.
“It will be important for our guys to get the experience needed at the beginning of the season and grow as individuals,”said Godby.
One of the main goals this year is to win the conference tournament at the end of the season. Along with winning conference, another goal is to be one of the three teams that make it out of our sectional, which traditionally has been one of the most competitive sectionals in the state.
Senior Christian Parks predicts this season to be a roller coaster by having both ups and downs. Personally, Parks wants to make it out of sectionals. As a team, the goal is to win conference since they fell a stroke short of achieving that goal last season.
“Going into a new season with a new coach, I will try and lead by showing how to adapt and change to a new face coaching us,” said Parks.
Sophomore Toby Meyer has high hopes for this season and thinks it will go well and everyone will improve from their season last year. His goal is to win conference individually, get through both sectionals and regionals, be able to play in the state finals, improve on last year and be a leader for his team.
“I plan on leading my team as best as I can by just lifting them up when golf gets mentally insane and trying to get everyone to focus on the positives not so much the negatives,” said Meyer.
As a reminder, it is not too late to join boys golf and get to be a part of this upcoming season’s team.
