Freshmen Maier, Knight leading BHS golf effort so far in 2007


Bearden High School’s boys and girls golf teams aren’t tearing up the fairways and greens with victories, but a pair of freshmen are giving hope for a bright future.

“Jeff Maier, our freshman, has played No. 1 through most of the year, and has really played well — he’s got our best scoring average,” BHS head coach John Heins said. “He’s played the most consistent all year long.

“That’s been kinda a nice surprise.”

On the girls’ side, “Allie Knight has really played fantastic as a freshman this year,” Heins said. “She’s got a great scoring average. ... I think she’s got a good shot at making it to state.”

OTHER PLAYERS

Senior Eric Schwartz “has really played well, also,” Heins said. “Jeff Slack [senior] has not had as good a year as he wanted, but he’s looking forward to the district and the region [tournaments]. Hopefully he’ll play better there.

“Owen Shirk has had a couple of good rounds of late,” the coach added about the junior. Heins labels sophomore Bradley Bartram “a nice surprise, he’s moved up” to No. 4 or No. 5.

Back to the BHS girls, “Arielle [Notte] has played well in spurts, Heins said. “If she plays well and Allie plays up to her capability, I think they’ve got a good shot at going to the state., which would be a major achievement for us this year.”

Heins said the match highlight for both teams came at the same course, Willow Creek Golf Club, Sept. 5, as both Bearden teams beat Maryville.
