While walking onto the course with the warmth of the sun at the collar of their shirts, and a subtle breeze through the air, seniors Cole Frederick, Trevor Book, Evan Bendis, Graham Holmes, and Tanner Jensen mentally prepare for their Senior Night. Senior Night marked the seniors’ final match at Pinecrest Golf Course in Huntley, Illinois. The seniors were acknowledged before the match, and the team was celebrated with a pizza party afterwards at the course. 

Junior Danny Sheedy kick-started the match with a birdie on the first hole, and led the way with a final score of 38 over the course of the nine holes. Junior Josh Good followed up with a score of 39. He finished the match off strong for the Red Raiders with birdies on the final two holes. 

The team frequently showed tremendous support throughout the competition, complimenting and helping each other. The boy’s golf coach can be thanked for that attitude. Coach Colin Kalamatas has been coaching the golf team for five years now and loves doing so. Being able to connect with your students and team in such a peaceful setting such as a golf course can connect everyone together through their minds and sportsmanship.

Senior Cole Frederick could often be seen complimenting his opposing teammates when they made a good shot. He could be overheard saying, “good shot man” several times. Frederick had a good game, and finished the nine holes with a score of 47. He has been on the golf team all four years of his high school career. He golfs outside of school often because he lives on a golf course, therefore making sure he gets plenty of practice throughout the season. 

The Senior Night match at Pinecrest was a great success for the Huntley High School’s boys golf team. Varsity won the Senior Night match against Dundee Crown 163-184. It was an amazing end to the senior’s final season, but the team is not finished just yet.
