Players and new coach look to promising future

Mr. Cassler, Adviser

The Central Catholic Golf Team ended up sharing fourth place at the Taft Invitational golf match held at Fair Oaks Ranch Country Club on Feb. 24. Evan Immenschuh was the low score finisher for the team with an 81 for the par 72 course.

Under the leadership of new golf coach Jimmy Keener, the team continues developing and improving their golf skills. Coach Keener, who is a national champion, 2 time All-American, and an Academic All-American, was impressed by the calibre of golfers that he observed when he first came to Central to fill this position. He had this to say about these golfers: “They were all good golfers when I saw all of them swinging at the fundraiser tournament in October when I first met them, but they are all better students and and great people which is more important.”

History shows that Central has amassed a history of having seasons of good golf teams. Coach Keener hopes to carry on this legacy. Keener comes in with eyes wide open and puts it this way: “My goal for the team this year is to win our district championship and get the team to state. The school has a history of having great golf teams, and I would like to continue that legacy and bring a state championship to Central Catholic.”

Senior Steven Vester had this to say about his performance during the Fair Oaks match: “Overall I performed well this tournament. I know what I did well on and what I need to improve on mentally and physically for the next tournament.”
