The Cherokee High School golf team is expecting a good season, despite losing some key players after their 20-5 record last year, notably letter winners Jon Guise, Per Andersson, and Karl Magnusson. Experienced players returning include seniors Tony Rubino and Josh Smargiassi, as well as sophomore Hugh Arbuthnot.

"We will be a good team," said coach Paul Budniak. "When we play well, we will be able to compete with the best in our division.

Other possibilities are Greg Voorhees (a senior), Hugh Arbuthnot, and Doug Cusick (a sophomore)."
