High Expectations Are No Problem for Centennial Golf
After a very successful 2012 campaign, the Centennial golf team is looking for a repeat in success during the current season. After losing the presence of Ryan Hunt, Grey Schultz, and Matt Warren on the varsity squad, veteran varsity members Christian Khachaturian, Mike Braverman, and Isaac Overman are taking over as captains, and hoping to lead the team to success.
We interviewed varsity player, Johnny Rodawig, and asked him if it will be tough to live up to the expectations set by last years team. “It will be tough to have the same success as last year… if we practice hard enough then we can not just obtain last year’s goal, but go further by making it to state…”
Those are pretty lofty goals, especially for such a young team. The Chargers have five juniors and one sophomore on the roster, with Wyatt Small being the lone sophomore and Khachaturian, Braverman, Overman, Rodawig, and Ben Khachaturian rounding out the roster.
This roster is headed by Christian Khachaturian who Rodawig says is, “the most consistent player on the team.” He has proven himself as the number one player by consistently shooting in the low 70s, and occasionally scoring as well as 66-69. He has helped lead the team to three tournament wins and two more wins in head to head matches so far this year, the most recent being against Mahomet. He now leads the team into a match against Lincoln in hopes of picking up win number six on the season.
