The Plainville golf team will be hitting the tee soon, that’s if all the recent snow finally goes away.
Hopefully, Tunxis Plantation is ready for the grind as the Blue Devils will be looking to improve upon its 9-7 record and 9-4 finish in CCC South action – good for third place – during last year’s competitive season.
Plainville had two all conference players last year in the form of Richard Hansen and Andrew Chapman.
Champan graduated as did fellow seniors Steve Boland, Mike Gervais and Tyler Goodall.
But Hanson will be one of the keys to the 2013 squad along with Chris Utley.
Against Middletown last year, Hanson shot a three-over par to help defeated the Blue Dragons while also hitting tallying a similar score in a huge 178-179 victory over Bristol Eastern.
Utley shot a 38 against Torrington and Bulkeley and those two players will be key in a good season.
