Sophomore runner set to have strong season for Evart track

REED CITY — Colt Start is among the key returning golfers for Reed City’s boys team this spring.

He’s a junior in his third varsity season. Last season, he shot an 86 at districts and averaged a 93 for 18 holes.

“It was a good improvement” from the previous season, Start said. “I’m working on my game more. I played all summer.”

Prior to spring break, the Coyotes had to improvise to get ready for the spring season.

“I played at Cadillac a couple of times because they have an indoor (facility),” he said. “It’s hard to judge where the ball is going to go.”

After spring break, the Coyotes were able to take advantage of the seasonable weather last week and get the season going.

“I want to shoot around an 85 on 18,” he said. “I have to limit mistakes and little strokes that shouldn’t be taken.”

Start indicated he’s a good driver and wants to improve on his short game.

“The team is looking pretty good,” he said. “We have a lot of new incomers this year that will shake up the team. We’ll see how it works out. I’m excited.”
