Pete DiSalvo returns for his 36th season as coach.

The Tigers finished 10-2 in the MAC last year.

Returning letterwinners include first-team All-MAC golfers in senior JAcob Watren and junior Kyle Cotner.

Also returning are second-team All-MAC golfers in senior Griffen Reigle and junior Nicholas Litten Stonebraker.

Senior Michael Hemmelgarn was an honorable mention All-MAC selection last year and sophomore Alec Ahrens also return.

“With everyone returning and finishing second in the MAC last year, our expectations are very high,” DiSalvo said. “Winning the MAC is our first goal. Moving from D-III to D-II will make moving on from the sectional to the district a tough assignment. Qualifying for the D-II district will be our second goal.”

DiSalvo sees the MAC as being very competitive.

“I would say Fort Recovery and ourselves would be the favorites,” he said. “Minster loses eight players, but always seem to be able to re-load quickly. The rest of the league will be improved with New Bremen and Delphos St. John’s leading the pack.”

GIRLS GOLF
