The ride for the Lake Park-Audubon boys' golf team should be much smoother than the 2009 one, as the Raiders return good talent, along with some seasoning.

Lucas Hoehenan is back after finishing at a top 20 in the Heart O'Lakes Conference last year and should be able to move up in the rankings.

Eighth grader Isaiah Pearson has shown a good work ethic in the offseason to improve his game, making him a solid No. 2 golfer in the Raider lineup this season, as well.

"We'll have four other golfers rotating in and out of the top six," said LP-A head boys' golf coach Nicole Seyfried. "We're looking to have a better ranking in the conference."

The Raiders also will have Bo Svodbodny, Eric Zachariason and Elijah Bodine in the mix as LP-A's top six golfers.

The goal this year is to eliminate mistakes and stay out of trouble leading to high-scoring holes.

"This year, coaches can coach during the meet, so that will be big," Seyfried said. "In previous seasons, the guys would get into lots of trouble on holes, so I'll be out there helping them make better decisions out there."

Seyfried is hoping for a middle of the pack finish in the conference, so consistency will be a key factor this year.

The Raiders will host an HOL meet May 3, at the Forest Hills Golf Course.
