Hawks golf program filled with promise – Sports – Dallas County News

For the past few weeks, Woodward-Granger golfers have decided for their upcoming season, which will take place on Jan.

Both the Hawks ‘boys and girls’ teams are full of promise and the opportunity to finally move up to the next level, according to head coach David Combs.

“Everything is a stepping stone for our kids, setting personal bests leads to higher conference placements, higher conference placements prepare us to compete in section games, and so on,” said Combs.

Comb’s positive attitude isn’t just a motivational tactic. The longtime coach is a firm believer in how far both squads can advance despite losing some great players.

“Every team will feel the loss of some of the key senior contributors from last year,” said the coach. “Paige Mescher worked on the program for four years. We will miss your passion for the game and the demonstration of the young women that we want to get out of our program. “

The same will be felt on the boys’ side, as not just one player but two players are missing from the squad.

“With the boys, section qualifier Brady Aunspach and four-year-old letter winner Austin Ober were great members of our golf program and brought a lot of passion and competitiveness to our team,” remarked Combs. “We’ll miss having them on the line-up this year, but we know they have a huge impact on our program.”

Fortunately for Combs and the Hawks fans, there are a number of players who appear to be already carrying the torch.

“I look forward to Aubrey Mescher and Cierra DeHoet making great strides in leading our girls’ team this season,” he said. “I’m excited to see what you can do in preparation for the coming season and what influence you can have on the newcomers to our girls’ team.”

On the lads’ side, Combs definitely isn’t short of players he believes will shoulder the burden of graduating seniors.

“Nick Brummond, Max Helbling, Hunter Pierce and Matt Buch will lead the team after nearly making progress in the section game last year,” said Combs. “All four of them bring great experiences to the boys’ program and it will be great when they encourage each other and the younger players to continue expanding our program. “

Regardless of how the season goes, Combs knows his team will show improvements as the year progresses.

“As is typical for my program, we look forward to further growth throughout the season and to our best golf come-conference tournament and the section playoff time,” he said.
