Freshman Golfers Come Up Big at Conference Invitational

The Whippet Golf Team began championship play on Wednesday competing in the Rock Valley Conference Invitational. The team finished with a 447. Entering the invite, freshman Dane Hillmer (photo) found himself playing from the team’s number 5 position having battled an inconsistent driver all season long. Hillmer shot some balls on his family farm on Tuesday night, unable to find the right stroke. With the season struggles and the practice experience on his mind, Hillmer decided to leave the driver in his bag for most of the day. “I knew if I used my driver I was just going to get myself in trouble, so I just left it in the bag,” said Hillmer. The decision paid off for Hillmer who posted a career low round and led the team with a score of 106. Hillmer shot 60 on his front nine and  49 on the back nine. Fellow freshman Jaden Condon, having added a few new clubs to his bag over the weekend, found a groove to shoot 107. Condon shot 55 on the front and 52 on the back. Condon walked off the last green, feeling confident. “I feel that I did pretty well and am accomplishing most of my goals,” said Condon. Sophomore Wesley Abramson, the team’s number one golfer all season shot 113 with a 57, 56. Rounding out the scoring for the Whippets was Maddie Arnett and Camden Frye with a 121 and 137 respectively. The Whippets aim to build off of this momentum next Tuesday, May 21st at the WIAA Regional competition at Grand Geneva Highlands.
