Dillon— The Dillon Christian golf team is strong on experience and senior leadership this season, something that could carry them a long way in the region and post season.

The golf team at Dillon Christian is led by Head Coach Chris Rice, a veteran leader of the team.

“We have three seniors and we are pretty good,” says Rice. “We are a very experienced team. I started with these kids five years ago and lost one last year to graduation. All of them pretty much started with the program at the same time.”

Dillon Christian opened the season with a win at Florence Christian. They have also participated in a tournament of six teams, coming away as the winner.

Among the seven on the team, Rice’s daughter Sheridan Rice also competes among the boys.

Team leaders also include Ryan Stephens, a senior, and Hunter McDuffie, also a senior. Stephens and McDuffie are currently the top two players on the team.

Also contributing heavily for the team is Mason Bailey, also a senior, and Connor Collins, a junior.

The five, six, and seven slots on the team are somewhat interchangeable among Rice, Josh Brown, a newcomer to the team as a sophomore, and Landon Buck, also a sophomore.

 Rice says that the five through seven slots are usually changing up a good bit.

Much like any other team, the Dillon Christian golf team has set a number of goals, both short term and long term.

“Our short terms goals without a doubt include winning our region and going undefeated,” says Head Coach Rice. “Our long term goal would include a top three finish at the state. I think all of those are legitimate goals for us.”
