The Marion golfers took part in the Herington Invitational Thursday, a tournament the Warriors won a year ago.
But last year’s success did not transfer to this year, as Marion did not earn one medal.
“It was a beautiful day for golf though, but our A-team never showed up,” coach Thane Schwartz said. “I’m trying to get the golfers to ‘see’ the golf shot with their mind’s eye, but lately it’s been tabula rasa.
“Thinking about the mechanics of the golf swing during the swing is a real swing killer.”
Schwartz said he hopes this will be a learning experience.
“We won this tournament last year and became overconfident out of the gate,” he said. “Maybe this was a lesson to be learned that could help us in the long run.”
Coming—The team was scheduled to compete at Emporia Municipal Tuesday and will travel to Salina Municipal Friday for a 9 a.m. start.
