The boys golf team recently held their annual 100 hole golf marathon fundraiser at the West Ottawa golf course.

“The fundraiser helps pay for our winter golf room at White Pines as well as new apparel,” coach Taylor Schriber said. “If the kids raised a certain amount they get 20% back to themselves as a Maple Hill gift card.”

Donors have the option to sponsor the fundraiser by a corporate sponsor of $200 or by sponsoring each hole at $1 a piece. 

“I thought it was a big success,” senior Luke Deater said. “It was cold but it was fun. We spent all Sunday playing golf with each other. We raised a lot of money and I think we reached our goal.”

The Bucs return to the 2020 season mainly senior heavy. A few underclassmen will help fill the missing spots.

“We have a good group of seniors this year that should hopefully lead us beyond the regional tournament,” Schriber said. “I’m excited about our team itself. This is my third year with a lot of these guys so I know them really well. I think we met our goals last year and we’re going to set new ones this year.”

“I think it would be fun to try and obtain the regional championship if not a state title,” Schriber said.
