Slater Golf 2021 led by senior captain Freddy Bacon and head coach Ken Wilson finished with a record of 6-4, including an impressive six-match win streak.

With all eight starters from the previous season returning, the team approached the new season with both experience and desire for improvement.

During the regular season, the Slaters focused on putting in additional effort, gaining confidence, and working towards new personal bests.

The Slaters sent four golfers to the Colonial League Tournament, with seniors Freddy Bacon taking twelfth place and Dylan Hurd twenty-fourth in the boys bracket. In the girls bracket, senior Paulina Poels took both second and junior Natalie White took third.

At the District XI qualifier, Bacon took fifteenth and White fourth.

At Districts, Bacon and Poels each finished with personal bests. White took third and qualified to the State Tournament where she would ultimately take thirty-first place.
