Golf Preview: The Admirals are Looking to Continue Their Dominance
By Nick Miller '20
Last season, the Severn Admirals golf team, led by coach Mr. Jason Salinas, experienced great success, ending with an 11-3 record. All three losses came to Boys’ Latin, including the MIAA B-Conference Championship. The Admirals were led by senior captains Burt Gesner, Will Barroll, and Topher Urban, with support from current senior Anthony Donato and current juniors Henry Stoer, Jackson Killelea, and Brendan Murphy. Gesner, Barroll, and Stoer all represented Severn at the MIAA Individual Championships as well.
Losing their number one and number two golfers, the Admirals golf team has some voids to fill. With starters Donato, Stoer, Murphy, and Killelea returning, Mr. Salinas has two spots to fill in the Admirals starting lineup. Senior Nathan Gauthier looks to return to his prior starting spot this year after his last season was ended due to a prior soccer commitment. Senior Spencer Russell also intends to show off his improved golf talents and fight for a starting spot. Juniors Will Klepper, Nicky Bradford, and Nick Miller are all also looking to fight for one of those two spots, with a year of golf team experience under their belts. Senior Matt Johansen, otherwise known as Jigbo, also hopes to provide a spark to the golf team, with his playing, but also through his ability to make his teammates laugh.
The Admirals are returning many key assets and definitely have what it takes to go all the way to the Championship again. Watch out for the Admirals golf team this year!
