SPRINGFIELD, NJ – The entire 2016 varsity roster returned for the 2017 season. Most of the team’s starters graduated last year.
Coach Dave Campbell put things in perspective and said, “The graduating seniors were a stellar group that won the Valley Division of the Union County Conference the last two seasons. The three returning letter winners are Scott Maran, Alex Sirotkin and Sarah Roderick. They will need to elevate their games and young players will have to step up for a conference title to be a possibility this year.”
Also returning this year are seniors Jacob Thompson, Zach Martini and Kevin Kennedy; juniors Julia Cohen, Sayre Brandstatter, Tyler Kwinta and Catherine Miller; and sophomore Matt Zeiman,. New to the team are senior Angelina Cacioppo; junior Noah Coehlo; sophomore Bertram Groenborg; and freshmen Aiden Forys, Brett Netkin, Jordan Berkowitz, Ryan Disko and Jeremy Greiss.
This is Coach Dave Campbell’s third year as head coach of the golf team. He is also assistant coach of the girls basketball team and teaches third grade at James Caldwell Elementary School.
Besides success on the golf course, seniors on last year’s team ended up enrolled at Penn State University (2), University of Wisconsin, Rutgers and Seton Hall. Players on this year’s team get the opportunity to play around 20 competitive rounds of golf at a variety of courses including a few considered among some of the best in the country.
