Luke Wurdock led the Warriors with a 41.5 nine-hole average and carded an 85 at the North Section 8AA meet. Mickelson tallied a 43.0 average last season. Hendrickson had a 44.8 average last season and carded a 93 at the subsection meet. Don Wurdock finished with a 45.0 average and carded a 94 at the subsection meet. UNC finished eighth at the subsection meet with a 361.

     Competing for starting spots and providing depth will be senior Tom Johnson, juniors Brian Hillukka and Calvin Taylor, sophomore Edwin Eix, freshman Vaughn Massie and eighth grader Anthony Wurdock.

     “I hope the boys continue to improve,” said Tim Wurdock, who will be assisted by Dale Captain, Justin Day and Taylor Schroeder. “The top four played a lot last summer. I really hope we finish in the top half of our conference.”

     For the girls, only sophomore Laura Niska returns from last year’s varsity squad. Niska compiled a 47.3 average and capped off the season by carding a 105 at the subsection meet.
