With the 2013 high school golf season set to hit stride, the Lancaster High School golf team will be visible on area courses for season’s play as well as in the community.

The Bruins golf program, the LHS boys and girls, will be active seeking to raise funds through various events in the community this spring and on forward.

“We want to get the community involved and help back us,” Lancaster High golf team coach Scott Roberts said.

The team’s first order of business is to sponsor the Bruins Invitational on Saturday, March 16 at the Lancaster Golf Club.

The captain’s choice tournament, which will feature four-man teams, tees off at 1:30 p.m.

Funds raised will benefit the Lancaster High School golf teams.

“The funds we raise will be used for equipment, travel and uniforms,” Roberts said. “With limited funds and budget constraints, we receive a limited amount of funds for our programs, so we wanted to follow through to be active in the community to raise funds.”

The 16-member boys golf team plays in the spring, while the eight-member girls team competes in the fall.

Last fall, the LHS girls hosted the regional tournament at the LGC.

The Bruins will host the boys tournament on Monday, April 29 at the Lancaster Golf Club.

“We’re just trying to help these youngsters out,” said Lancaster assistant coach Joe Hinkle. “They will be in different fundraisers to help the teams. Each time they participate, they will be dressed in their Lancaster High School golf team apparel.

“They will be visible in an effort to make a difference for their team,” Hinkle said.

LHS athletic director Mark Strickland praised the golfers and coaches.

 “They want to do something to make a difference for their teams and they plan to get the community involved which can only be a plus,” Strickland said.
