Golf hoping for improvements next season

Golf hoping for improvements next season

Brady Buter, REPORTER

The golf team didn’t make the playoffs this year, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an enjoyable and encouraging season.

The Mariners went 1-10-1 on the season, with their lone win coming against Chariho who didn’t win a match. It’s still a step forward from their 1-12 season last year.

“We just need to post lower scores,” Adam Lurgio, sophomore, said. “We need our four, five and six players to improve a little bit, but that will come.”

Lurgio was one of the key players for Narragansett who consistently posted low scores, always giving his team a better chance to win. Lurgio consistently shot in the 40s and occasionally in the 30s in a 9 hole match.

Other key players for the golf team this year were senior captain Clay Edmonds, junior Nicolas Croto, sophomores Jack Harris, Jason Sweet, Ethan Betts, and freshman Robbie McHugh. All of these players were part of the match rotations.

“Our team next year will be in that average portion in the division,” Lurgio said. “We had a lot of young kids on our team this year so we can only get better. Everyone is going to get better so we’re definitely going in the right direction.”

The players have a full summer ahead of them to tee off in nice weather, while a majority of the team are still underclassmen and will continue to grow and develop their game. The future’s looking bright for Narragansett Golf.
