Saranac golf season outlook

SARANAC — Saranac golf coach John Roth believes his team’s strengths will be their experience in the top four spots, which he thinks will be competitive with most teams.

Those four top spots will be filled by returners Nick Lees, Austin LaDieu, Jarett Wright and Max Staley.

His final two spots he said are “up for grabs.” The final two spots will be filled with players that have limited or non-competitive golf experience. The Chiefs are looking to improve from their 5-5 record last season.
