Struggles continue for BC golf
Bakersfield College men’s golf team has continued to struggle with its course management as they took fifth place out of seven teams at Saticoy on April 9.
BC scored 393, while College of the Canyons took first with 343. Glendale College took second with 373 and Santa Barbara City College was third with 381.
“I think we’re improving and starting to get where we want to be at,” said BC coach Bill Kalivas. “I still think we struggle with course management and the style of these courses.
“Our conference is so deep and tough, and not many people realize that many of these schools are able to practice at these courses nearby and we don’t have anything nearby to do that. For this team, how young they are, we knew it would be a learning experience, but I think by next year we’ll be a more competitive team,” he said.
Kalivas added that it will take some a big team effort in the next tournaments to keep their season alive. He also added that they will have to do it without their No. 1 player Jack Henneberry, who strained a back muscle during a practice, but they don’t know how long the injury will keep him out.
The Western State Conference Finals will begin on April 23 at Santa Barbara.
