The Jefferson City High School Boys Golf team is currently in the start of its season. With five boys on varsity and five boys JV, head coach Randy Bickel and new assistant coach Levi Elder are hoping and planning for a successful season ahead of them.


The top five ranked golfers are Austin Siebeneck, Nathan Erickson, Brett Trowbridge, Michael Davidson and Burke Craighead. Elder and Davidson are two new members of the JCHS golf program. Trowbridge, a junior, is pleased with the new members of the team.


“I think they are both really good assets to the team,” he said.


Trowbridge has been on the team for all three years of his high school career and is particularly excited for this season now that he’s ranked in the top five. Another golfer on the team ranked in the top five is Erickson, a junior. He has also been on the team all three years of his high school career.


When preparing for season, the team goes through a tough training regimen. Weight Lifting is required a few times a week and personal training outside of practice is very much advised but not required.


On the first day of practice, depending on the weather, Bickel will send golfers out to play the first qualifying round. There are three to five qualifying rounds and that will determine who will become apart of the team. Erickson is ready for the season to get started.


“We have a lot of potential for this year, both individually and as a team at districts,” Erickson said.
