Chesterton Boys Golf set to open season

Back To Front Page


The trek to the State Finals isn’t any easier and the Chesterton boys golf team is ok with that.

“The Regional still hasn’t changed,” Chesterton Asst. Boys Golf Coach Pat Ward said. “Now it’s at Sandy Pines where we feel more comfortable. I think we can shoot around 300 and if we shoot below that, you put up your number and hope it’s good enough.”

Off to IU is Mitch Davis, but the cupboard is far from bare for the Trojans.

“We’re pretty solid,” Ward said. “We return our entire varsity lineup minus Mitch (Davis).”

Senior Devin Trusty will handle No. 1 duties for Chesterton after averaging around 74 for 18 holes last year.

“Devin has been great so far in the rounds we’ve played,” Ward said. “He’s played in all the big spots in his career. He’s the calm leader and is super consistent.”

Backing up Trusty is the duo of senior Cameron Schultz and sophomore Sean Elliott.

“Cam and Sean are playing out of their minds right now,” Ward said. “They are really fired up and ready to go. Our top two guys got so many accolades last year, it’s almost like they feel disrespected. They are out to prove something.”

Juniors Jackson Kerkes and Jackson Roberts will round out the varsity five for the Trojans.

“With Jackson Kerkes and Jackson Roberts, we’ve got a set group of five guys for the lineup and we’re solid all the way through it,” Ward said.

All the tools are there for a post-season run, but Ward is most happy with the mental approach the Trojans have shown so far.

“This group doesn’t get upset about bad shots anymore,” Ward said. “They hit the shot and then go play the next one. It’s a different mentality this year. It’s amazing the difference.”
