Boys golf: North looking for improvement from young players

The North High boys golf team has returned to links this season with many inexperienced players on its roster.
“I hope the youngsters we have work hard on their game to improve,” North head coach Jim Pearson said. “Playing against other schools will show them they have to work on their game to have success. The attitudes of our team members are great.”
Pearson continued, “We are very young. We have only two seniors on our team, and just one of them has varsity experience.”
