Since 1995, Mr. Krebs has coached the SJHS Golf Team for students.  Tryouts were held on the week before Labor Day. The team practices at the Hobble Creek Golf Course once a week for two to three hours.  The SJHS golf team plays to win and to have fun.  

According to Mr. Krebs, the golf coach and a math teacher here, the golf team was an intramural program offered by Coach Perkins, a former coach here.  In 1995, Mr. Krebs took over as coach of the team. 

In golf, whoever has the lowest score wins.  The number of strokes until the ball goes in the hole is your score.  There are nine holes in a regular season and eighteen in tournament play, according to Mr. Krebs.  There are eight people on the golf team.  Ellie Nielsen, a seventh grader, said that she uses her driver to tee off,  an iron in the middle, and a putter on the green.  

Mr. Krebs said, “I really enjoy working with the golf team members and helping them improve their game.  I like being outdoors and the association with the parents and other golf coaches.”  According to Max Davis, an eighth grader, Mr. Krebs does not reprimand you if you mess up; he tells you how to fix it.  According to Jake Dellamas, an eighth grader, Mr. Krebs has been golfing for a long time.  According to Max Davis, another member of the team, the golf team is pro.
