Jack Vanderpool, Staff Writer

The Wheaton Warrenville South Golf team played in a Conference Match on Tuesday, Sept. 10 with a big win against Batavia and St Charles East. The Tigers played well as they beat their opponents 156-161-164 at Pheasant Run Golf Course. This conference win puts them in a great place to continue their push onto a State Championship.

The golf team had a big week as they topped West Chicago on Monday which gave them a lot of momentum going into Tuesday. Both Dhilan Desai and Jason Prince shot even and Ben Klimenko, Aiden Mccoyd and Jack Turner all shot 41. Coach James Selleck was very excited about the win. One thing that he pointed out often was how crucial club selection was in every match, but this match in particular. 

“We have been working on choosing the right clubs off the tee box to promote hitting the fairway,” said Selleck. “Choosing the wrong club off the tee box, it can lead to a bogey or double bogey.” 

Selleck also touched on how important the captains have been in leading the team and how despite there being two captains with Prince and Desai, the other seniors play a big role in leadership. 

“Yeah, with how many seniors we have, it’s important to have leadership and help mentor the future seniors, which can lead to future success after we graduate,” said senior Jack Turner. 

With Tuesday’s win, the Tigers will look to carry this momentum for the rest of the season as it nears its end in October. With regards to the end of the season, both Turner and Selleck agreed it is too early to tell what they will be able to accomplish, but both said that they can still improve in order to have a strong finish as they push for a State Championship.
