While baseball and softball bask in the spotlight, the Eagles’ men’s and women’s golf and tennis teams have also been in action throughout the spring season.

The men’s golf team began their season in fall, but have continued play throughout the spring months.

The men’s golf team has impressed throughout the season and won the annual Bash in the Boro event. In addition, the Eagles have also accumulated five other top-10 finishes throughout the season.

Ben Carr, Mason Williams, Brett Barron and Jake Maples are the only golfers to play in all eight events. Carr and Williams have shined this season and are the only golfers to maintain a stroke average below 72.

The women’s golf team also began play in the fall, but have continued their season throughout the spring.

The Lady Eagles have yet to win an event this season, but have recorded six top-10 finishes.

Abby Newton and Ella Ofstedahl are the only ladies to participate in every event; however, Alberte Thuesen has the lowest stroke average on the season, with an average of 74.33 strokes.

The men’s tennis team began playing in January and has continued through the spring months. The men currently have a record of 10-7 on the season.

Alexandros Roumpis and Pascal Wagemaker have impressed the most in individual play. Roumpis has accumulated a record of 19-9, while Wagemaker is currently 18-8.

The women’s tennis team also began play in January before the bulk of the season in the spring months. The Lady Eagles are currently 12-8 on the season.

Nadja Meier, Mila Hartig, and Paula Hijos have separated themselves as the leaders of the team throughout the season. Meier is currently 10-7 on the season, Hartig is 10-3, and Hijos is 9-5.
