The varsity linksmen at Bethel-Tate have been enjoying a successful season.
“So far, so good,” said Harold Messer, the coach of the Tigers. “Individually, they’ve been playing up and down, but we have players who step up for us.”
Many of the Red and Gray are averaging in the low 40s per nine-hole round. Bethel-Tate’s mainstays have been seniors Travis Tolin, Tommy Galea, Zach Stiers, and Josh Ausman, junior Alex Dice, and freshman Jason Adams.
"Western Brown had potential and after them most of the other teams in our division (American) of the league were fairly young. I think we have a decent shot in getting out of the sectionals this year," Messer concluded.
