The boys golf team has been successful this year, and as the year comes to an end, senior players reflected upon on their experience as players on the team.
The team finished the season with a 5-7 record in DFAL, which is the best record for the golf team in the last four years, according to senior Ryan Woo.
Woo and fellow senior Christian Nicolini both had the chance to compete in NCS golf this season.
Senior Joe Slusarz enjoyed his time spent on the green this year.
“There’s a chance to play at really nice courses with some of my friends for no charge,” said Slusarz. “Some of these courses cost like 60 to 70 dollars for just one person, and Las Lomas covered that for me.”
As a result of Sluzarz’s experience, he said he has developed important skills that he will use in his life after Las Lomas.
“I can say that being on the golf team, you learn about how effective manners are,” said Slusarz. “You want to shake someone’s hand and take off your hat after your match and look them in the eye. All that stuff can help me in the long run.”
The highlights of the season include double victories over Alhambra and Dougherty Valley. The Knights’ biggest victory was over Campolindo, which came as a surprise to the team.
Woo was named a member of the DFAL first team for the third consecutive year but was ultimately hoping to be named league MVP this season.
Senior Travis Cullimore has played golf for four years and has many fond memories from his time on the team.
The boys have a tradition of stopping at In-N-Out following victories, but Cullimore said that all of his experiences were unforgettable.
“We had so many good times,” said Cullimore.
Although the team will lose four seniors next year, the Knights will be led by a talented core of underclassmen, headlined by Emmitt Burk.
