The IMS boys golf team finished up their regular season play on Saturday, May 9, after a busy week of 18 hole events. Coach Steve Nelson had this to say about the week, “All in all it was a good week for the team. We are improving and that is easy to see in our scores. Our young team shot a better team score at conference than last year’s team. It is nice to have a solid week of practice before sectionals Friday. I’m looking forward to finishing the season well.”
