Buc golfers looking forward to snow free course By Renee Orluck Reporter In North Dakota, golf is a spring sport in which one needs to practice with a brightly colored ball to show up in the snow banks. The Buccaneers boys team is coached by veteran golfer Jim Groll. Coach Groll is in his 21st year of coaching and 40th year of participating in the sport. "I see us being in the middle of the pack as a team," said Groll. "If the kids work hard and give 100 percent, they can learn the game and enjoy it for the rest of their lives." The team boasts senior Gunnar Farstveet, who qualified for state last year and hopes to repeat that performance. Senior Cole Erickson has come a long way with this being just his third year out, and Groll is hopeful he can earn a spot at state, too. Four - year veterans of the team include Lincoln Hegel and Kyler Frank. The team includes a dozen Pulpit in Medora. The Buccaneers members in junior high and varsity have nine meets this year, including combined. They practice both on one which they will be hosting at the course in Beach and at Bully Bully Pulpit on Monday, May 7.
