Today at 3:30 pm, Twin Valley’s golf team will tee off in their first tournament of the season at Taterhill Golf Club in Chester. It’s a new year, and second-year varsity coach John Keegan has a young team on his scorecard, led by sophomore golfers Wyatt Shippee and Judah Kondracki, who each provide one year of varsity experience. Junior Tony Tarr, sophomore Aaron Boles, and freshman Brett Barry will accompany them at the tee.

“We’ve had a rough start practicing because of the weather,” said Keegan. “We started practicing indoors, which is always interesting when you’re trying to golf, but for the last two weeks, Mount Snow has let us use their range.”

Keegan says that with such a young team there is always room for improvement, but as long as there is progress, there is success. “As long as everyone has fun and hones their skills and meets their own personal goals, I’ll be happy,” said Keegan.

Last year, Wildcat golfers came in second place in team scores twice, led by seniors Connor Hunt and Beau Doucette. Keegan will be counting on Kondracki and Shippee’s experience as his leaders on the links.

Twin Valley will participate in tournaments at Tater Hill on May 2, 14, and 28, and at Okemo on May 6 and 20.
