Golf gets underway

After the first golf match of the season, Coach Seth Emerson said he and fellow coach Jeff Evans are excited about the Champlain Valley Union High School squad.

“Peter Scrimgeour and Carter Knox are our top returners and Forrest Dodds and Christian Jaunich will be guys that will step into the varsity rotation and play important roles this year,” Emerson wrote in an email to the Observer. “The scores for the first match were solid and we coaches expect them to only get better as guys get used to the varsity match atmosphere.”

On Monday, Essex just beat CVU 337-356. Scrimgeour led CVU with a score of 77, while Knox finished with an 83 and Jaunich a 92.

The Redhawks are set to play Mount Mansfield Union High and Essex on Thursday afternoon, then travel to St. Johnsbury on May 6.
