Crete Boy’s Golf may be a small group of only three but they are aiming towards success throughout every golf match. Within the 12 to 16 events that the team participates in, each boy tries his best to receive the best score possible.

Caleb Vertin, Garrett Bulsik, and Thomas Buchanan have been working to make the 2017 season the best season Coach Scott Johnson has ever had. Johnson recently stated, “ What’s disappointing about only having three boys out, is that there are kids in the school that should be playing but choose not to. In golf, you are learning a lifelong sport for free. Although we are short on players, we try our best to play just as well as teams with fifteen players.”

Golf practice takes place everyday after school at the Crete Country Club and has continued from the 27th of February. Between March 24th and May 24th the team plays a total of sixteen matches. The team faces a variety of competitors varying from Fairbury, to Beatrice, to Seward.

After the 2017 golf season, Coach Johnson will not be coaching or teaching at Crete. He is planning to coach girls golf while he is in Missouri living out the rest of his coaching career. He recently commented, “It’s too bad that my last year we only has three students participate, but coaching at Crete has been great.”

Crete Boys Gold will continue to be a successful team but Coach Johnson will be greatly missed. He has high hopes for the team after he is gone. The team hopes to keep going strong as even after a tough loss of a great coach.
