NORFOLK - The six sophomores and five freshmen that comprise Northeast Community College’s golf team kicks off their spring season next week. Northeast opens its season on Monday at the Northeast Invitational at 1 p.m. at the Norfolk Country Club in Norfolk.

“I am really excited about this upcoming season,” said Hawks Coach Brad Bosh. “We have four strong returning sophomores this spring that were able to get some great playing time at the varsity level the last two years. I feel that we are going to have a pretty dynamic top five this spring that can definitely win the regional tournament at Lake Panorama (Iowa) this year.”

Bosh notes the team’s stroke averages are the lowest since Northeast reinstated their men’s golf program in the fall of 2012.

“I’m looking forward to some warmer weather so we can really start to hit the courses hard,” he said.

This season’s sophomores include Michael Brockhaus, Humphrey; Stephen GrandPre, Cheyenne, WY; Gage Garnas, Julesburg, CO; Chase Hopper, Norfolk; Dalton Lammers, Hartington; and Preston Peters, Bancroft.

Freshman players include Cameron Bancroft, Valentine; Brooks Coleman, Valentine; Tyler Lewis, Norfolk; Jamy McCoy, Laurel; and Cody Steuter, West Point.

“These guys have really come together as a team this spring,” said Bosh. “We have nothing but positive attitudes on the whole team, and they all get along and support each other every day in practice. That’s what it takes to put together a championship team.”

Last fall the Hawks finished fifth at the 14-team Nebraska Intercollegiate Tournament, shooting a two-day total of 624. Brockhaus tied with four others for 17th after shooting a (+9) 153.
