TELL CITY—With all four scorers from its PAC and sectional matches last year back, Tell City’s boys golf team expects to improve on last year’s 7-39 record.
Mason Waninger and Logan Bolin took turns being the team’s leading scorer last year (Waninger led the team in the conference tourney, Bolin led in the sectional) and are basically tied for No. 1 on the team again this year, Coach Keith Feldpausch said Friday.
“They both played a lot of golf all summer and they played some indoor golf in the winter (at Fair-Weather Indoor Golf in Ferdinand).
“Right now Mason’s driving the ball the best. Grant’s maybe a little bit better than Mason” at putting.
Damian Harney is No. 3 on the team’s depth chart.
Lane Czora, a senior who played for the first time last year, will be the only other person playing for the Marksmen in some early matches.
Jimmy Phillips, the fourth returning scorer, is expected to be sidelined another month with the torn meniscus he suffered in football.
Brian Arnold is the only other one on the team, and he will miss several matches because he plays baseball first.
Still Feldpausch thinks the Marksmen can improve on last year’s record “because Mason and Grant have both improved since last year.”
Feldpausch said Southridge, South Spencer and Heritage Hills should be the top three teams in the PAC.
“South Spencer has everyone back. Heritage Hills graduated their top four but will still be pretty good I’m sure.
“I could see us being right in there behind them. That would put us in the middle of the pack (the Marksmen finished sixth in the nine-team conference last year).”
