Eaton golf hits mid-season with high hopes

Peter Grossenbacher (19) is facing his most successful golf season yet, winning first in individual scoring at both the Resurrection Christian Invitational and the Frontier Invitational. With his first individual win in high school, Grossenbacher, who shot a 70 at Highland Meadows and a 73 at Greeley Country Club, said, “This win gave me more confidence for upcoming tournaments.” The Eaton golf team placed top three in the first six tournaments of the season, which began on August 11.

Coach Gino Maio said he is pleased with this year’s team. “This is one of the better groups of players I’ve had,” Maio said. “They are fun to be around and hard working.”

This year’s golf season appears similar to last season thus far, with the boys placing in the top three. Last year, however, the teams stats dropped mid-season, but they picked it up again to finish fourth in state.

Ethan Alcazar (18) said he was glad they avoided the mid-season slump this year. “This season we are more of a team,” Alcazar said. “There is less competition between individual players.” The two new players on varsity this year are Walker Scott (20)  and Bryce Leafgren (20). Eaton will walk into the Patriot League Championship among the top six of 56 3A teams on September 12 at Coyote Creek Golf Course in Fort Lupton. Grossenbacher said he is focusing all his attention on finishing strong this season. His coach has the same hopes. “Peter has a good chance at winning in individual scoring.” Maio said, “We won’t have Ethan at this tournament, so it will be close.”
