Coach John Butzgy shared his insights on the season with the final three matches ahead.

“We have had a tough time getting wins this year, currently with a 2 – 5 overall record,” he said. “However, our young players are making good improvements to their game and our seniors continue to lead by example, displaying good sportsmanship and determination in our contests. This team is full of well-rounded student athletes who represent SE well.”

Butzgy also applauds senior Andy Fern for his excellence this season.

“The highlight of our season thus far is senior Andrew Fern shooting a career-best two under par 33 against Waterville on May 10,” he said. “Andrew is on track to qualify for sectionals and has had a strong final season thus far. Sectionals start May 23.”

S-E heads to Cooperstown this afternoon (Wednesday) with a tee-off set for 4 p.m.
