   The upcoming golf season for the Warriors of Happy Valley is a picture still in development as this season brings promise of some success with a good dose of rebuilding.
   With the majority of this years H.V. golf team playing their first competitive golf, the future is still unclear for the Warriors this season.
   Returning starter Dustin White promises to be the diamond in the rough this year for the Warriors, he has shown bits of greatness in the past and will be expected to pace the Maroon and White this season "Dustin shot even par a couple of times last season," said coach Chuck Babb "He'll be our #1 this year."
   Despite his success Babb is still hoping his ace will improve again this year, "His game is solid, I think he needs to work on putting but he can hit the ball well."
   As for the rest of the team, Babb is hoping some of his younger players can step up and take the helm, "This is a rebuilding year for us, we don't have a lot of experience."
   Senior Joe Howell will be asked to step up and play well this year. As for the Warriors entire team, If the Howell's do well, then so will the Warriors. Junior, Matt Howell and Freshman Nathan Howell, will round out the roster of Howells.
   Jeremy Barnett, and Justin Davis will also provide punch from the starting group. Babb is hoping all of his youngsters can raise their level of play as this season is looking to be a difficult one, "We want these kids to get in, and get better, only 1 out of the 6 guys on the team have played a round of competitive golf until this year."
   This year marks Babb's second year coaching the golf team at H.V. after taking the reigns from coaching legend Charlie Bayless, but regardless of this season's outcome one thing is for certain.
   With a good work ethic and a little luck, the Warriors will improve as the season goes on. Hopefully that improvement will bring rewards towards the end of this season. If not, next year most certainly be more promising.
