One year ago, the Port Washington boys golf team did not have a single senior on the roster.

That situation meant that a large number of players saw varsity time, and now they are all back looking to make more strides in 2017.

"Last season, we were young and inexperienced," coach Scott Kosidowski said, "but we gave many players the opportunity to play at the varsity level. This year, I am encouraged at the progress they made during the off-season and we are looking to improve this year. We may surprise some teams in the North Shore Conference. I am very excited about this season."

The seniors this year are Nick Becker and Jeremy Theis, who are both in their second seasons on varsity.

Junior Joe Probst will be a factor, as will sophomores Evan Halls, Antonio Feciskonin, Reilly Sullivan and Dan Barney.

In addition, the program has 13 freshmen this season.

Port began the season in the large Washington County Invitational on April 8, finishing 24th with 386 strokes.
