It has been a season of continued success for the Lake golf team.

For the third time in four years since Terry Tansel took over as head coach, the team qualified for the district tournament by finishing third at sectionals. Prior to Tansel’s first year, the golf team hadn’t made districts since 1986.

“We’re really headed in the right direction with the program in general,” Tansel said. “Our lowest score since I’ve been a coach was at the league meet two weeks ago where we shot a 325.”

It all starts with practice, and Tansel said the team tries to mix it up and keep things interesting each day.

“One day we’ll play nine holes, the next day we’ll go to the driving range, or we’ll work on chipping and putting,” he said.

It is during chipping and putting where Tansel said he mixes it up more.

Through six weeks of the 2009 season, Lake led the Suburban Lakes League with a 3-0 record, a half-game ahead of 2-0 Genoa.

Coach Bob Abbey's Flyers, who traveled to Eastwood on Friday, already own wins over league rivals Gibsonburg, Otsego and Woodmore.

"We are not surprised," said Abbey, whose team went 3-17 overall the past two years. "We set our goals in the offseason to work to get better as the season progressed and to be league champions. We are in the middle of that process. We have a tough game coming up, but that is just another hurdle we will have to find a way to overcome."

After taking on Eastwood, which suffered a 54-11 loss at Genoa a week ago, the Flyers host Genoa on Oct. 16. The Comets (6-0), ranked fifth in Division IV, hosted Gibsonburg on Friday and have looked every bit the two-time defending SLL champions that they are.

Genoa coach Mike Vicars said he was "speechless" following the win over Eastwood.

It has been, in the words of Toledo Area Athletic Conference Commissioner Dick Nowak, "a work in progress."

"There has been a lot of movement with a lot of different leagues," Nowak said, "and I think that's going to continue."

The exodus of area high schools from one league to another continued this week when Gibsonburg, a charter member of the 37-year-old Suburban Lakes League, was accepted as a member of the Toledo Area Athletic Conference beginning with the 2011-12 school year.

"Gibsonburg will become a full member on Jan. 1, 2010, as far as them having meetings and discussions within the conference," Nowak said.

Gibsonburg and another SLL school, Elmwood, had applied to join the Midland Athletic League after learning that the SLL will lose five of its current eight schools in two years.
