Season opener: The team is scheduled to open the season on April 7 at Pebblebrook against Guerin Catholic

Key matches this season: The City championship is on May 7 at South Grove; the Sectional begins at 8:30 a.m. on June 5 at Maple Creek

From Head Coach Fagan: The team returns six of its top seven golfers from last year on a squad that was ranked in the Top 10 in the state most of the season. If the team members work hard enough in a positive way, the team should be better than last year. June is the month the team needs to be playing its best, and hopefully it will.
