Panthers looking to gain experience


LEWISBURG — Nathan Hans inherited a young team.

The first-year Tri-County North golf coach has no seniors and just two returning players on a roster of five.

Hans said sophomores Alex Wayman and Ethan Kelly have the most experience of his players.

Hans said his early season goal for the team is to just get the team playing experience.

“Right now, get experience. We’re young. We have no seniors. Two juniors, two sophomores and one freshman,” he said. “The two sophomores are returning players that have varsity experience. We have our good days and our bad days. It comes with youth.”

Rounding out the Panthers rosters are juniors Dylan Curtain and Clayton Finney and freshman Landen Owens.

“I’ve seen improvement so far. Just getting back to playing. Golf is a game you have to play to get better. A young team like this you have to get better each day.”

The Panthers are coming off a third place finish at the county tournament where they shot a 387 last week.

North is scheduled to host Bradford on Thursday, Aug. 17 at Beechwood Golf Course in Arcanum.
