With a good number of golfers out for the 2012 season, the Lake Park-Audubon boys' golf team will have plenty to work with for a solid year.

A trio of seniors return to anchor the team in Beau Svobodny, Brody Wiedmann and Elijah Beaudine.

"Each of our seniors has two to three years of varsity experience," said first-year head coach Cole Wixo. "We also have two sophomores in Dalton Kohler and Izzy Pearson who will be contributors, as well."

Freshman Chase Wiedmann also will be in the mix to fill a varsity slot, but Wixo added the final two spots for meets will be competed for in practice.

"We do have a consistent top four who can shoot in the low 40's to high 30's (in a nine-hole tournament)," Wixo said. "The guys have been striking the ball well and the keys will be to bring the averages down and finish in the top three in the Pine to Prairie Conference."
