High school golf preview
Ingrum returns to coach young Red Hill squad
BRIDGEPORT - After a one-year retirement as Red Hill High School's golf coach, Kent Ingrum has returned, saying the fire still burns.

"The thing is, the embers might not be as hot," said Ingrum, who replaces Ryan Cox - the man who replaced him prior to the start of the 2012 season.

Cox resigned his teaching position as RHHS, creating the opening. Ingrum was approached by parents and the Unit 10 board. He was officially hired at a board meeting on Thursday.

"The hardest thing is playing catch-up," said Ingrum. "There is a lot of paperwork and I have to learn about any policy changes or rules changes that I didn't know about."

The Salukis look like a team that will be improved.

Sophomores Zach Breault and Tanner Gray and junior Morgan Tewell - a two-time IHSAA sectional qualifier in the girls tournament who competes on the boys team during the regular season - are at the top of the lineup.

Breault was the top RHHS player a year ago, while Gray has transferred to Red Hill after playing for Lawrenceville last season.

"All three are capable of posting some respectable scores," Ingrum said. "They should be a pretty good threesome for us."

Juniors Austin Hawkins and Jacob Abell figure to be regulars in the lineup, as both return from last season. Sophomores Dylan moan and Jacob Tabler and freshman Andrew Weger also hope to earn a varsity spot.

Senior Taylor Heath is the only other girl on the team.

"There is some potential there, even from those who haven't played much," Ingrum said. "They're decent athletes. They're not going to score real well in the first month. But we're working with them, teaching them techniques and fundamentals. I think they'll start to turn it around by the end of the season. If they stay with it, they should be pretty good golfers in a couple of years."

The Salukis start the season Tuesday, with a meet at Casey.
