MT. VERNON —
“When you get to me, it's time to go, and we do minor fixes,” McClure said. “I don't have the time or the resources, just time would be the big thing to start over. Because we already played a match (Aug. 19).
“I've got some kids that are just beginning, and they just got thrown in the fire.”
One of the signature event of the Rams season is the South Seven Conference meet at Centralia on Oct. 3.
“We're always right in the mix in the conference, and I don't think there's any reason we couldn't be again this year.
“I don't know if we can win it, but I think we can be right up there.
The Rams will host the regional again this season at their home course Green Hills. The sectional stays close as well with Salem hosting..
“Our kids are familiar obviously here, and they're familiar with Salem's course so I don't think it's unrealistic to think that a kid could not get out of the sectional and go to the state tournament.”
McClure said he just wants to see his squad improve throughout the season.
“I would say a good goal would be just to get better, just be competitive,” McClure said. “For three golfers (at the South Seven Preview), we were competitive.
“Hopefully we'll just get better as the year goes on. That's all you can ask for.”
