In regards to season expectations for the Harrisburg High School boys and girls' golf teams, head coach Steve Black said he doesn't have any.

Last year, the Bulldogs boys' golf team only fielded two golfers, this year however, Black has four and enough to make a team.

The lone senior is Camden Schiff, the grandson to Black and his wife and assistant coach Cindy.

Clay Brigham is a sophomore and Black rounds out his roster with a pair of freshmen in Javier Beal and Andrew Bittle.

"I don't have very high expectations about being competitive," Black said. "We'll do our best, see where it takes us and try to have a good time along the way.

"Clay is a beginner, while Andrew comes from a long line of golfers and Javier has potential. Hopefully, Camden will have a fun year and shoot some good scores for us."

On the girls' side, Black has four golfers as well with two juniors ins Madeline DeNeal and Alli Ferrell, along with two sophomores Gabby Adams and Annabella Robinson.

"Gabby and Annabella have made a lot of progress from last year and we're just looking to see how much more progress they can make," Black said. "This particular group of girls have been playing for a couple of years and they're still learning. They'll be competitive against some of the teams, but other teams, maybe not so much. They have a lot of room to grow and hopefully just get better as the season goes on."
