TVS golf wraps up regular season
Twin Valley South’s boys golf team defeated Ansonia 200-231 on Monday, Sept. 17 at the Eaton Country Club.
”It’s hard to believe we’re already winding down, but when you play a quarter of the season in your first week, the rest of the season seems to fly by,” South coach Darcy Robinson said.
The Panthers played without the services of Connor Bradley due to a previous family commitment, so they played with the bare minimum of four again.
“Fortunately, we had some great scores from our top three guys to help out our rookie, Jacob Clark. Willie shot a fantastic 39, and Chance followed with a 43 for their last home match of their careers,” she said. “It was certainly bittersweet to not have our other two seniors with us tonight, Connor and Nate Osborn. I know we have more golf to play yet, the CCC tournament and the sectional tournament, but I want to say right now how proud I am of this team this year. We kept thinking all season that Nate would return and we were just trying to ‘hold down the fort’ until that happened. But our seniors especially, really took it upon themselves to demonstrate great leadership and perseverance through the difficulty of not having our number one golfer this year.”
Robinson said Bowman stepped up into the No. 1 position.
“Willie has stepped into that number one spot and has played with a lot of poise this season. It would be awesome if he and/or Chance could advance to the district tournament as individuals,” she said. “And who knows, if the other players were to put together their best performances, we could get out again as a team. I’m certainly not throwing in the towel on that possibility. It’s been tough on everyone, but especially Nathan, to have things turn out the way they have. Hopefully, he can get his wrist issue taken care of, and start preparing for a college golf career.”
