Darton State golf team hopes to build momentum

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The results simply haven't been there for the Darton State golf team this spring.

That's what head coach Dale Dover says about his team's performance so far this semester.

But he is pleased with the work the team has put in recently.

"I see them working a lot harder right now, doing more than just the minimum," he says. "The last few days, we'll get through with practice or qualifying, several of them will go to the putting green or out to the range. I really like to see that."

Part of that increase in work ethic is the region tournament, which is only a month away.

The Cavs can build some momentum before the April 5th tournament with a good performance at next weekend's Doublegate Collegiate Invitational.

The team believes a win could be just the thing to get them going.

"We're young, so I think a win under our belt would get everybody the feel of winning," says sophomore Madison Turner. "I think once that happens, we'll be off and running."

Dover says he would just like to see the hard work the team has put in pay off on the course.

"I'd just like to see us play well. We haven't played well this spring," Dover says. "I'd just like to see us step up, be mature, and play well."

The Cavs will host 11 other teams at the tournament, which begins with a shotgun start Monday at 8:00 a.m.
