A common focus

March 2023

Golf and track have pretty different objectives, but CR-B students competing in each sport this year have some common goals in mind. Both the 2023 boys golf team and the boys and girls track squads boast large numbers. Freshman Summer South and sophomore Gracyn Robbins are the only two girls golf athletes, but they still have high expectations.

Reaching state competition is something all spring teams have in mind. Moreover, these athletes are hoping to not just reach this top-level contest, but they hope to put CR-B on the map with some strong performances. 

“Our team goals are to have a significant number of girls and boys go to state, so we will have to place well at the track meets we participate in,” said Maddy Mason, a freshman track athlete. “We have a lot of people that went out this year, which will help us place high at meets since we are able to compete in more events.” 

Mason is competing in shot put and discus, and she also serves as a sprinter.

Parker Hays, a sophomore track athlete, and Elia Esdohr, a senior golfer, share similar opinions.

“It’s not enough for us to make it to state,” Hays said. “We want to compete at a high level to showcase CR-B in the highest possible light.”

“Our goal is simple,” Esdohr said. “Let’s win it all.” 

Currently the sole girls golfer due to Robbins's ankle injury, South notes she will face some challenges this year.

“A goal I have is trying to do as good as possible when playing against other teams as an individual player,” South said. “I hope that this will help recruit more members for future years.”

The optimism for each spring team is running high. Both teams possess high expectations, and they are ready to combat any challenge that comes their way.
