Highlights & scores: dealing with weather, plus girls’ lacrosse
WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Forget COVID protocol, the toughest task for area high school sports teams this spring has been battling the weather.
A case in point: golf.
Immaculate Heart was starting its practice Tuesday afternoon at Willowbrook Golf Club. The players were getting ready for a round of golf in windy and chilly conditions.
Immaculate Heart started playing golf again this season after a three-year hiatus from the sport.
First-year coach Sam Booth has had to do more than just work on his team’s game. Because of the weather, he’s been a busy man making sure matches are rescheduled and played.
“Well, I’ve enjoyed it,” he said, “running around like a chicken with his head cut off. The scheduling is a disaster with the weather and courses not being open, only a few. Thanks to Doug McDavitt here, he’s gone over the top to help not just IHC but a few other schools out, so we’re very appreciative of that,” Booth said.
“I tell ya, there’s been days when I said we don’t have to practice if you don’t want but they said ‘yes, let’s go, let’s do it,’ and a lot of them are beginners, so that’s encouraging that the youth want to play some golf.”
