East High’s golf team is recruiting new players. Spring golf is right around the corner and Coach Flagler is looking for students who are interested in playing.
Coach Flagler discusses the upcoming season and describes the organization of a typical practice. “Well we always start off with stretching and then after that go on to work on short shots. We also work on drills for our longer shots.” Coach Flagler has many coaching goals for this next season, especially for at least one of our players to qualify for sectionals.
Coach Flagler has been playing golf since he was a young boy. He became interested in coaching at East when there was talk of starting a team. “There was an opening when I first came here and I have always played since I was little,” states Flagler.
If students are curious and would like to know the time commitments and obligations for plating this sport, Coach Flagler said, “We have matches on Mondays and Wednesdays, practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but if a player makes sectionals they have to go on the weekends.¨
Golf has been a sport Flagler enjoys and he would love for students to come and play. If you have any questions on when are tryouts please go to his office in the gym.
