Although there are ten seniors on the team, captains Reboul, Winston Breeden, Luca Opperman, and Harrison White have provided great leadership throughout the season especially during rough times

Other than finishing eleventh at the Archbishop Hoban invitational on September 3 and other invitationals with multiple teams, the Tigers golf team has played well this year’s regular season. 

“This regular season was good. We won every one-on-one match other than Hawken,” explained senior player Hunter McGillicuddy. 

With only one loss, the Tigers have a lot of confidence going into a final match with Hawken, and the playoffs.
