This year's golf team headed to their first match in early March in Spring Creek for an icebreaker. The Lowry golf team beat Elko and Spring Creek. Lowry finished with a total of 351 with Elko runner up with 367, and Spring Creek coming in third with 410.
The top three for Lowry were Kobe Stoker who scored an 80 with Max Mavity scoring 88 and Caden Rorex, 89. Bodi Miller scored 94 and Cal Peters (99) and Hunter Smith (120).
Coach Andrew Meyer is looking forward to working with his team this year.
“What I am looking forward to most this season is the group of athletes I have playing this year,” said Meyer. “They are a great group of student-athletes that will make the season fun and enjoyable.”
Meyer’s goal for the team is to be competitive against the other teams in the league.
“My goal as a coach is to be able to instill a lifelong love of golf in all my players,” said Meyer. “My goal as a team is to be as competitive as possible and make the state tournament as a team.”
This year Meyer hopes for his athletes to have a stronger swing this year.
“No new changes other than we'll be swinging harder and hitting farther,” said Meyer.
Meyer has high hopes that his team is able to bring a state title.
“Our team's goal is to bring home some hardware at state, even the second place trophy would look good hanging in the halls of our school,” said Meyer.
Senior Caden Rorex is hoping to improve at every tournament as this year is his last year.
Rorex explains he hopes to make bonds with the new kids on the team while making the best of his season.
“I hope to do well my senior year and make it to state,” said Rorex. “This year we have a lot of new young kids who I hope to get to know.”
Rorex believes the team can make it to state.
“I think that we will do good and hope to make it to state,“ said Rorex. “My goal is to make it to state and be able to compete with the other teams.”
Senior Max Mavity has high hopes for his team and is pushing to the end goal which is state.
“I feel like our top six players have really made improvements from last year to this year,” said Mavity. “I hope to make it to the state tournament again for our fourth year in a row.”
Mavity is looking forward to his last golf season.
“I’m looking forward to traveling with the team and enjoying every moment of my last season,” said Mavity.
The team hosts their home tournament on March 30 and 31.
