The state champs put their belt on the line

“Golf is unlike any other sport, I think, in that it’s harder to be consistent from one match to the next,” Dube said. “The best players in the world aren’t always consistent, and these are just kids. So they have to continue to work on their game and try to get better.”

The impressive depth and experience of this year’s squad, for the most part, seems to trump any trepidations about steady play.

Seven of Triton’s top eight players have varsity experience, with the one exception being junior Jake Aponas.

“All of the players have worked hard at their golf games during the summer, and I expect us to be competitive in every match we play,” Dube said. “As always, it will be a challenge. There are many strong teams in our league, so obviously we’ll have to play well to get it done.”

Triton's Tradition The Triton golf team has proven to be the top program in the River Rival Region over the last 14 years. Here are some facts about the program: The Vikings have won seven of the last 14 River Rival Championships. The Vikings are 91-32 under eighth-year coach Rich Dube. The Vikings are the defending Division 3 North champions.
