Squad dominates as finals approach

Adrian Berger ’15, Jeff Aronson ’15 and Brandon Kewalramani ’17 have led the boys’ golf team by each shooting under par in almost every match this spring.
The squad is 9-3 overall this year and 7-3 in the Mission League.
After beginning the 2015 season with a 12-man rotation of players, boys’ golf Head Coach Tony Kewalramani has cut his roster to just nine men.
Coach Kewalramani placed Dylan Wan ’18, Chase Rosenblatt ’18 and Kyle Corman ’15 on the JV team, and the three golfers will not play any more varsity matches, and will therefore not qualify for CIF.
“The varsity rotation demands consistent play, it works by giving a very heavy weighting to each and every score a player shoots,” Daniel Furman ’16 said. “Players have had to overcome adversity when having bad day and subsequently sitting the next match, but this has only strengthened our ability and selected players that will help us into the post-season.”
As a trio in the Oak Park Invitational on March 16 at North Ranch Country Club, Berger, Aronson and Kewalramani came in second place as a team.
Berger came in second place in the individual portion of the tournament by shooting one-under-par.
This week, the squad has three Mission League matchups.
The Wolverines faced Loyola Tuesday, with the results unavailable as of press time.
Then the team will face the St. Francis Knights in back-to-back days Wednesday and Thursday.
“This season has been tough so far with three losses, but a win against Loyola would give us a lot of to make a deep CIF run,” Aronson said. “We are starting to build a consistent lineup, which is crucial as we head into the Loyola match and the playoffs.”
As the team heads into the Mission League tournament and the CIF championships, the squad is looking to put its early season struggles behind, and focus on the future.
The Wolverines have come together as a team, and are starting to improve their play as a team.
“My expectations are for us to collectively play to our best abilities, and wherever this will take us will be a success,” Furman said. “I have extremely high expectations, and I am confident that we will not fall short.”
