ST. JOHN’S — St. John’s head golf coach John Klausing had an extremely young team last fall — one senior and one junior — and paid for it with a 1-14 mark.
That crew finished eighth out of nine Midwest Athletic Conference units and ninth at the Division III Sectional at Auglaize Country Club.
With four starters back and a few more younger options — the Blue Jays don’t have a single senior and only one junior — Klausing hopes for a much-improved Blue Jay crew for 2014.
“We improved by 10 strokes per player by the end of last season,” Klausing said. “We knew it was going to be tough for us last year, having three freshmen play varsity, but the kids stayed positive and improved throughout the year.
