Cascade Golfers Hit the Links for 2019 Season


Carter Otheim, Staff Writer

On Monday, March 11, the Badger golf team assembled once again for the first practice of the season, where their coaches began to prepare them for what was to come this year.

The large group of golfers consists of seniors Jean Blackman, Georgia Mortag, and Preston Hagan, juniors Ryan Bogden and Riley Bricker, sophomores Colton Thune, Reece Mortag, Aedan Sewak, Eli Schreher, Madison Wilson, and Gracie Satterwhite, and freshman Justin Smith. These fine golfers are coached by Eric Tilleman, Roberta Tilleman, and Mike Moore.

The team’s first match is scheduled to be in Conrad on the 5th and 6th of April, but sadly due to the weather incoming, it may be postponed.

“The season has been unfortunately limited due to the snow,” stated their head coach, Eric Tilleman, “but we hope to start the kids practicing on a real course next week.”

Adding on to the subject of having a team with 12 competitors, Tilleman stated, “On the bright side, the golf team is on course to have a record amount of golfers compete at the state tournament at Seely Lake.”

With so many participants, Cascade has a full boys team and the making of a full girls team competing this year.

Cascade is excited to see what the golf team has in store this season!
