Every Monday, the Springville Junior High School golf team has a tournament. The tournament is at either Hobble Creek in Springville, Spanish Oaks in Spanish Fork, or Gladstan in Payson. Joseph Bell, a member of the golf team, said, “I like going to Hobble Creek because I like the way the holes are set up.”
Mr. Dallin Krebs, math teacher at SJHS and coach of the golf team, expects the team to finish in the top three at the districts. The golf team consists of nine boys and one girl. They are: Tanner Gervais, Nicholas Cooper, Joseph Bell, Cortez Nelsen, Charlie Fry, Lydia Austin, Jaden Warren, Alex Donahue, Michael Nelson, and Brandon Merkley. According to Joseph Bell, the golf team is the "bomb dot com."
A unique thing happened this year at Springville Junior High, a girl made the golf team. Lydia Austin is the only girl golfer in the whole district. Surprisingly enough, the golfer leading the team on this year’s squad is Lydia. The rest of the golf team is not far behind Lydia, and the whole golf team is getting better and better each day.
The golf team’s next tournament is Monday, October 3 at the Spanish Oaks Golf Course in Spanish Fork. When explaining the expectations for this years team, Coach Krebs said, “I expect the golf team to make improvements from the first golf tournament to the end of the season.”
