Doug Bruggeman begins year number 24 as head coach of the Pelican Rapids boys golf team having lost top golfer and state qualifier Joe Stetz to graduation, however, the rest of the varsity lineup from 2018 returns.
Juniors Logan Petznick, Kirby Nelson and McHale Korf are all back, along with sophomores Levi Johnson and Noah Kapenga.
“These players have been on varsity since junior high and now they are finally maturing physically and mentally as they are becoming sophomores and juniors,” said Bruggeman. “We are looking forward to a competitive year. Hawley, Barnesville and Perham will all field pretty solid teams in the Heart O’ Lakes Conference and Section 6A.”
Jim Christenson will assist Bruggeman.
