“It is always amazing to watch people mature as people and golfers,” Bethany coach Jon Daniels said. “This was a special weekend for me with the teams coming in first and second. To watch the seniors lead and the freshmen mature with every round puts a smile on my face. They are very unique individuals and I love each one of them. They are a joy to be around and I believe they have bright futures."
