Rebuilding time for BHS golf boys


Thanks largely to its “result-oriented and driven to succeed” senior class, last year’s Bearden High School boys golf team had a nose for smelling success.

And while the 2005 BHS Bulldogs may soon develop the same attitude, right now “this group right here are just glad to be on the golf team,” head coach John Heins said about his young and relatively inexperienced group. “They want to have fun and compete.


“But I don’t think they have any grandiose ideas about going a long way. They’re so young and so new, I don’t think they have any goals for where they want to go. A lot of ’em have not seen a [high school] match.”

As the likely No. 1 player, “Ben Dabbs, he’s a senior this year, and he’s played the last three years,” BHS head coach John Heins said. “Probably our best player.”

“Tyler Lockwood played for us last year. He didn’t play a lot of matches, but he’s improved greatly,” Heins said. “He was low man qualifier for us on the tryouts, so I think he’s going to be a solid player for us..”

Sophomore Jeff Slack “is young, first year on the team, he’s one of our top five players,” Heins said.

Senior David Houser “didn’t qualify for the team last year, but should have. Probably could have played for us last year, but I think nerves got him during tryouts. He’s worked hard on his game, and he’ll play a lot for us this year.”

Other BHS players looking to contribute are Eric Carlson, Mike Reese, Owen Shirk, Harrison Tull and Michael Vekasi.
