Led by returning standouts Bradley Glascock, who finished in the top 10 in last year’s State Tournament, and Stephen Campbell, the Senators look to once again impress. There are some newcomers looking to make some noise as well for the Senators. Some underclassmen include, Brandon Coker, Mitchell Clark, Adam Heilman, Brandon Hennessy, Edward Kunzweiler, and Damien Tolson.

“This year we look to improve on our season last year,” said Dover Head Coach Robert Clark. “We want to qualify for the State Tournament as a team and compete and be a force in the Henlopen.”
School: Caesar Rodney High School
2012-2013 Record: 16-0
Head Coach: John Newman
Key Returning Players: Samantha Leite, John Jerome Mangubat, Logan Paige, Lott Phinnessee, and Joseph Visalli.
Season Outlook: After a 16-0 record last season, the Caesar Rodney Riders Golf squad has little to improve upon in the 2013 campaign.

With returnees, Samantha Leite, Logan Paige, John Jerome Mangubat, Logan Paige and Joseph Visallie, the Riders have a strong nucleus. Also, the Riders have a few underclassmen looking to begin their growth on the greens, Michael Clavier, Jack Dixon, Kyle Hoover and Rhys Phinnessee are all names to keep an eye on this season.

Head Coach: Michael Sipes
Key Returning Players: Tyler Everett, Nathan Robinson, Ericka Yanero
Season Outlook: As a team, the Lake Forest Golf squad posted a disappointing 2-13 record last season. With a handful of returning standouts, the Spartans look to turn things around this season.
Seniors Tyler Everett, Nathan Robinson, Madison Swenson and Ericka Yanero look to lead a large group of underclassmen vying to contribute this season. Some underclassmen to watch include, Frank Kent, Taylor Yanero, Dakota Wilds and Erryn Smith.
School: St. Thomas More High School
2012-2013 Record: 12-3
Head Coach: David Lonchar
Key Returning Players: Mike Sander, Brendan Smith
Season Outlook: After an impressive 12-3 season last year, the Ravens return to the links looking to make even more waves on the golf course this season.
Returning standouts Mike Sander and Brendan Smith will lead a group of up-and-comers led by Hayden Maupin, Ezra Rudinoff and Omiros Bousses.
While they lost two of their top contributors last season, Sander and Smith look to fill those roles while the underclassmen look to contribute wherever they can this year.
From the Coach:
“With the graduation of Davis Braun and Joe Gardner, the two current seniors Mike and Brendan need to elevate their golf games,” said Head Coach David Lonchar. “I am hopeful these two will qualify for the state tournament. (However), the number one expectation this season is to have fun.”
