I expect him to be back competing in states again," Carter
With the golfers finishing 5-3 in the regular season and finishing second in the Penobscot Valley Conference (behind Houlton) as well as fourth in the states, the team looks to be competitive again next year.
"Overall it was a good season this year and we were very competitive considering we only played class B schools," Carter
said "It definitely paid off for us in the end."
This is the second year in a row that Carter

golf team to states and the fourth year in a row that a GSA golfer has competed in the state competition.
Carter said he is also proud of the four girls who played this year for GSA, a first for the school.

"Storme Macomber and David Bertrand will be missed," Carter
Even with a good nucleus returning next year, Carter
would like to see more GSA
students going out for the golf team, and as another golf season comes to an end Carter
is still "looking forward to another successful season next year as both a team and as individuals."
