BHS golf team ready to tee it up

March 14, 2001

The Baldwin High School golf team started its first practice on Monday with a new coach.

Coach David Theis has played golf regularly for four years and has coached other high school sports for three. He is currently a science teacher at BHS.

"From what I hear about the golfers I have, we should have a successful season," Theis said.

There are 27 players that tried out and the top six of each week will compete at the next tournament.

"I hope the varsity players can beat me by 12 strokes or more," Theis said.

Theis's expectations are to get through the first year and have a good season.

The team's top returner is senior Sam Reznicek, who qualified for the Class 4A State Tournament last season. Many other players are also looking forward to the season, all for different reasons.

"There's nothing like free golf," senior Josh Donohue said.

The first tournament of the season is the Gardner-Edgerton Invitational on April 2, starting at 9 a.m.

"I think we'll have a good varsity golf team this year and I think Mr. Theis will help us out," junior Jarod Robertson said.
