After dominating the PAC last year finishing with a 9-1 record, hopes were high for the Spring-Ford boys golf team to possibly win the PAC, but things didn’t pan out the way they had hoped and unfortunately lost to Methacton 198-203 in the championship. 

The Rams are looking for a bounce back season this year in what might be an unforgettable season due to the uncertainties, and the questions surrounding sports in general during the pandemic. 

This Spring-Ford team consists of promising upperclassmen ready to win now. including Second-Team, Mercury All-Area selection Luke Watson, and seniors Joey Chillano and Joe Niblick. They will look to lead very promising underclassmen Jake Blackmoor, and Luke Fazio. 

The uncertainty of possibly not having a season was very worrisome to many of the golfers because of the hopes to contend for a PAC Championship title, including Senior Luke Watson. 

“I was quite worried we weren’t going to have a chance at the PAC Championship, which we lost last year,” he said. “I tuned into every board meeting to see the fate of sports and, luckily, I have the opportunity to play.”

After finding out that the season was a go for a lot of the golfers, there was huge relief because they would be able to play together as a team, which is a huge part of the school golf team and forces them to strive to be better. 

“I felt relief because school golf is unlike anything else, because it is manly about the team and having a bond among us fuels success in golf,” Watson said. “So we built that into this season and look forward to what we can produce this season.” 

The bar is set pretty high for the boys golf team, even under the circumstances of the pandemic. The goals for the team are still the same as if it were any other regular golf season — win the PAC. 

“We have a lot of potential,” Watson said. “And I want to see each and everyone of us reach that maximum.”
