Archbold Golf Returns Five

Entering his sixth season at the helm of the Archbold golf team, Mike Rosebrook welcomes back five letterwinners– Brandon Miller, Trevor Rupp, Mitch Grosjean, Kreighton Sims, and Kade Kern– from a squad that won the Northwest Ohio Athletic League and finished 11th at the state tournament last year.

Miller and Rupp are seniors; Grosjean and Sims are juniors; and Kern is a sophomore.

The Blue and Gold will also look for help from newcomer A.J. Mahnke, a junior.

“With so many returning letterwinners, we should be able to draw from a good amount of tournament experience,” said Rosebrook.

“These students are all very dedicated, as well as the hardest-working group since I started coaching.

“I expect to come out of the gate a little better this year. Most of this team played summer tournaments. Add two more months of practice to that, and we should have the game for October golf again.

“We are going to work on course management a lot this season. These guys all hit it so far off the tee it actually cost us some unnecessary penalty strokes.

“They just want to bomb drivers all day, and they have enough other skills that they don’t need to.”

The Streaks were scheduled to open their season at the Defiance Invitational, Monday, Aug. 7.
