Adam Horn, Cole Huncovskv. Zach Duffy and Micah Daniels were among those and they eventually played some var- sity golf for their team last year. "Adam and Cole played varsity most of last year and Zach and Micah played at regional and state." Dauner said. "Joey Zadina played varsity all of last year but was unable to attend state because of health reasons." This year's varsity team consxsted of the following athletes during the spring 2011 season: Joey Zadina, se- nior: Jessica Freemim, senior; Cole Huncovsky,junior; Adam Horn. sopho- more: Zach Duffy, sophomore; Micah Daniels, sophomore; Francisco Fischer, sophomore; and Devon Free- man, freshman. Only six varsity play- ers per team are allowed at meets snd this season members of the Rock Hills varsity team varied from meet to meet depending on players' conflicts. This year only five were allowed at regionals and state. The Rock Hills players on the regional and state team were Joey Zadina, Cole Huncovsky, Adam Horn, Zach Duffy and Micah Daniels. "We had a slow start to our season but the boys worked hard at practice and spent extra time on the golf course which helped us to finish with a first place state finish. They received sev- eral individual and team medals. I was confident that we could place in the top three teams at state but we hadn't been as consistent as I would have liked during the year so I wasn't sure what our outcome at state might be," Dauner said. "We had never played at Yates Center before. All I knew was that it was a pretty wide open course and would play well for a slice. We were also told there are rocks in the fairways. I was thinking small rocks, but we were shocked to see rocks more than a foot in diameter sticking up above the ground. It was more like a pasture in several places with not as much grass as we are used to playing on." When the team arrived at Yates Center, after the four-hour trip, they played a round to get familiar with the course. Some of the boys really struggled, and it was really hot and humid. Dauner said. After a practice round they went to the motel to relax and get ready for the next day. There was a 20-minute start delay at the state sandgreens tournament be- cause of light rain and lightning, how- ever when they eventually started it was a great day for golf cool and mostly cloudy, but the sun peeked out a little toward the end of the tourna- ment. "I told the boys .to just relaxand enjoy the day of golf. When they would finish on hole nine, I visited with them, asked how they were doing and of- fered advice and encouragement. I felt pretty good about their scores as they came around and they would also tell me current scores from other team- mates they had talked to on the course," Dauner said. "I was feeling pretty good about our chances to be among the top three teams. After they had posted the first round scores and we were up by 10 stokes. I realized we had a great chance to win. I was hoping the boys would turn in second rounds close to their first rounds, and they did. As they started posting the final scores, I real- ized we had three boys turn in scores in the 70s. It was exciting to watch the boys come in from their rounds pleased about their scores and then watch them as they began to realize they might have won as a team. They won by eight strokes. I was really proud of the boys for all they accomplished this season." Adam, Zach, Micah and Cole's combined score last year at state was 438. This year at state their combined score was 332. "These four boys have improved tremendously. I look forward to next year's season and what this team is capable of," Dauner said. "We will miss Joey for his leadership and indi- vidual scoring ability. Joey really kicked in this year and helped out the team. He" improved a lot this year also.'"
