Jimmy’s thoughts:

“It’s been a frustrating year so far with not being able to go outside for practice and having a number of meets postponed or canceled. I am expecting the team to start off a little slow since we haven’t been able practice, but we should pick it up as the year goes on and be in contention for the (Olympian Conference) title once again. Personally, I am looking to get off to a solid start and only get better as the year goes on.”

Coach John Haug’s thoughts:

“Jimmy Albright is an outstanding golfer with unlimited potential. He has a passion for the game and continues to to improve at every practice and meet. He’s a great team leader and does everything you ask of him. He has made first All-Olympian Conference all three years of high school and is on his way to a fourth. He’s the kind of player you wish you had every year.”
