Boys Golf 2018 Preview
The Rebels Return all but one player from the 2017 squad that shot 311 at sectionals to finish one spot out of a regional berth and won the Circle City Conference Championship. University of Indianapolis signee and MVP from the 2017 squad, Evan Wray is looking forward to a great senior season as is fellow senior Drew Fleming who is still considering his college basketball and golf options. Drew and Evan are playing their fourth season of varsity golf for Roncalli. The two remaining seniors on the team are Jack Baker and Dom Bleizeffer who came to the team with little to no tournament experience, but have been developing their games in the last three years with the program to the point where they hope to challenge for some varsity action.
The team of 12 has six players with a brother on the team. Two of them are Sophomores Luke and Mark Poole. Luke medaled in three matches as a freshman and finished fourth in the CCC championship while Mark’s best finish was at the Sollman Invite where he shot 75 to finish 5th against the best players in Indiana. Another one is Freshman Conner Wray, brother of Evan, who has played a lot of tournament golf and figures to get some varsity action. Junior Nicolas Dietz played a lot of varsity matches in 2017 and returns eager for 2018. Fellow junior Nick Susemichel continues to work hard to develop his game. The team is rounded out by Sophomore Peyton Zins and Freshmen Noah Fleming, brother of Drew, and Graeham Watt.
The team is looking forward to the challenges that 2018 will bring. The Rebels will play a very demanding schedule which includes an invite to the Spring Preview on May 5th at Prairie View. The hope is that the schedule will help prepare the team for the state tournament beginning with the sectional at Hickory Stick on June 4th.
