   It’s out with the old and in with a new season for the men’s golf team. This year the LHS golf team is ready to dominate the course.

   “Our goals for the season are the same goals we have every season,” golf coach Forrest Bertoldie said. “We focus upon our conference, district, sectional and state tournaments. All of our work leading up to these tournaments is designed to provide preparation for these events.”   

   With the season just starting, each teammate is looking forward to bringing their best. This comes with hard work and practicing as much as they can before the season begins. Because pre-season now over and the season in full swing, they are ready to take on whatever challenges come their way. This has the team keen on making it to state.

  “My goal for this season is to get our team to a deep post-season run to state,” junior Micah Kravcov said. “So far the season is going really well, our team looks pretty solid.”

With state in mind, this team can’t wait to see where the season takes them.

   “We go out and practice really hard, we focus on the things that make us better for the season,” senior Jake Harman said. “I want to make it to state as an individual but more importantly make it as a team.”

  When not on the course the team hangs out and listens to some old school rap music.

   “Playing with all my teammates is my favorite, they make it super fun and worth it,” Harman said. “We always motivate each other. So being around them makes it fun.”

   Along with having fun there are some challenges that come with golf. Most of it can come from the weather or working as a team.

   “One challenge is to stay consistent. It’s hard and everyone has to play well together for things to come together,” sophomore Cooper Stiles said.

   With the season comes tournaments. One tournament that stands out from the rest is the Bertoldie Cup, which is named after the coach himself.

   The match is between Liberty and Liberty North. Last year the team won against North, earning bragging rights. They are hoping to do so again this year.

   “The Bertoldie Cup is on April 7. Anyone can come support,” Kravcov said.
