CB SUNDAY, MAY 6. 2001 PREP SUNDAY THE SALINA JOURNAL BENNINGTON BULLDOGS Photos by JUSTIN HAYWORTH /The Salina Journal (Above) The Bennington golf team (from left) Justin Ahlers, Jason Crist, Jared Burch, Andy Scheef, Jared Loe and Kyle Koster pitch on to one of their two sand greens. (Below) Jared Burch works on his short game. SMAIICOURSE •** /i /rrtoJiTS Benniiigton has used tiny course to build one of state's best sand-green golf teams By CHRISTIAN D ORR The Saliiiii Journal BENNINGTON — With two short fairways dominated more by dandelions than fescue and a treeline overrun by poison ivy, the Bennington golf course will never be confused with such renowned hatmts as Pebble Beach and Augusta National. But beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and while their course won't likely be featured in Golf Digest any time soon, members of the Bennington High School golf team wouldn't trade their two-hole home. "It isn't much, but I think it is a big reason why we have been winning so much," Bennington coach Jason Fell said. "Out here, about the only thing we can do is work on our short game. And when you're playing on sand greens, being able to hit shots from 150 yards in is the name of the game. Out here, that's all we hit." The course sits on a plot of land just north of Bennington High School. It has two greens, one on each end, sitting less than 200 yards apart. It's smaller than most football practice fields, but has provided a training ground for what is rapidly becoming one of the best sand- green teams in the state. The Bulldogs have run roughshod over opponents this season en route to five tournament victories in five attempts. They have often been dominant, winning by as many as 20 MMMHH and 30 strokes. Not bad for a program that didn't exist three years ago. "It is phenomenal," said senior Jared Burch, the team's top player with a 68-stroke average. "We all just keep practicing hard to keep making ourselves better." The Bulldogs average 288.8 strokes as a team. They have shot over 300 just once boast a season-best 273 when they posted scores of 64, 65,67 and 77 for a combined 7-under par. Burch isn't the only weapon. Junior Jason Crist averages 70 strokes and became the first Bennington golfer to qualify for the state tournament when he placed 17th as freshman two years ago. Sophomore Justin Ahlers has a 72 average. He had a sensational freshman season, winning the regional tournament and tying for second at state as Bennington took second as a team. "Our top three golfers, aU of them are playing strong right now and I think all three of them have a shot at placing in the top 10 at state," Feil said. "All three of them have state experience, and if we can just get one of our other three players to step in and shoot in the 70s, we're going to be awfully tough to beat the rest of the season." That includes the state and regional tournaments, two titles that eluded Bennington a year ago when they finished second to Chase County both times. "This year we have the confidence that we can do it," Ahlers said. "Last year we placed second to Chase County, but it was the first year we took a whole team to state. This year, we have the confidence. We know we can do it." Feil doesn't mind his players talking about winning a state title. He says the dream won't become a reality without first having a vision. "These kids are dedicated golfers and they have lofty goals," he said. "Anything less (than winning state) and they are going to be disappointed."
