Inexperienced Blazers looking to improve


NEW PARIS — Just get better each day.

That’s the game plan for National Trail’s boys’ golf team.

“We’re just working on getting better day-to-day,” said Troy Ferguson, National Trail’s first-year golf coach. “Match to match, we want to shoot lower scores. We’re young. We’re working on fundamentals and understanding the game.”

The Blazers roster has six players, two seniors, three sophomores and a freshman.

“Only two of those have played before,” Ferguson said.

Senior Chris Brubaker and sophomore Tyler Porter.

Rounding out the roster are Austin Knapp, Caleb Miller, Sam Roberts and Brad Sorrell.

“Lot’s of inexperience, but that’s alright. It gives things to work on and improve,” Ferguson said. “The kids are working hard. I enjoy it. We’re having fun.”

Ferguson said a couple of his players had never picked up a golf club until this past weekend.

“We’ve got some work to do. We are improving. We’re getting there,” he said.

The Blazers finished fifth at the county tournament last week.

Trail was scheduled to compete in the CCC preview match on Monday, Aug, 14, and will host Twin Valley South on Thursday.
