Indian and Eagle golfers
find the elements hard to work in
Gary Franklin, Sports
High school boys golfing action between the Jac-Cen-Del
Eagles and the Milan Indians was attempted at the Hoosier
Links Golf Course in Milan on Tuesday evening, April 14.
Despite the swirling, stinging wind and disgustingly wet
conditions, the teams played on. Bitter winds stung the
body as some players elected to go it without arm, leg
or hand covering. The young golfers' attire ranged from
long pants and hooded sweatshirts to shorts and t-shirts.
(Oh to be young again).
The Eagle team, coached by Chad Pindell consists of a
nine member unit this spring. They include returning senior
Ethan Hess along with first year JCD golfer seniors Blake
Sutton and Gerald Hardesty. Junior members of the team
are: Ethan Harmeyer, Don Lows and Brandon Wilhoit. Sophomores
rounding out the Eagle varsity are: Joe Abplanalp, Logan
Simon and Tyler Dickman.
The 2009 Milan Indian Boys Golf Team, coached by Steve
