ROCKFORD — Joe Falk returns for his eighth season as the Parkway Panthers head coach, as they are looking to better their 2017 efforts where they finished fifth in the Midwestern Athletic Conference and also fifth in sectionals.

The Panthers return a trio of letter winners this fall in Mason Baxter, Andy Metz and Duncan Morton. These three along with fellow seniors Jay Anderson and Austin Clutter will look provide leadership to a younger group of talent.

“We are fairly young,” said Falk, “so we are looking to work on improving our ball striking and not losing shots around the green.”

They lost three letter winners due to graduation, though they will welcome in a crop of newcomers with potential to help out at the varsity level. Breyden Bruns, Kaden Boroff, Hunter, Gibson and Adam Stephenson will be new to the squad but will provide promise to help out the returners.

“Mason Baxter qualified for Districts last year,” said the Panthers head coach, “so we hope he can continue the form he showed last season.”

Baxter received a first team all MAC nod, along with qualifying for Districts for his 2017 efforts. He will lead a group of inexperienced golfers this season as the Panthers look to compete for their first MAC championship on the links.

Rounding out the roster will be a quartet of freshman, Jace Armstrong, Camdyn Clay, Hunter Bruns and Aidan Morton.

Parkway began their season Aug. 7 at the Mercer County Invitational at the Mercer County Elks Golf Club.
