Golf Team At Indian Creek Finishes Season As Co-Champions


Indian Creek School’s varsity golf team celebrated its first season back in the MIAA C-Conference by becoming co-champions. After a seven-year hiatus, the Eagles returned to club play last year and rejoined the MIAA for the 2023 season. The co-ed team found great success, with their top two golfers, sophomores Ethan Thomas and Joelle Johnson, outscoring their opponents 97-1 over the regular season.

The team finished their inaugural season with a record of 8-3-1. The team then battled Beth Tfiloh in the MIAA semifinals, winning 11.5–9.5, and earning a spot in the championship match. In the finals on May 17, the Eagles traveled to the Greenspring Valley Hung Club to tee off against Jemicy. The two well-matched teams played a great match, finally tying for the championship title, 10.5-10.5, the same outcome of their first match earlier in the year.

Eagles coach Brad Woodward congratulated both his golfers and the Jemicy players and coaches as well. “The championship match displayed all the best qualities of high school athletics. Jemicy coaches and players deserve high praise for their quality play and competitive spirit. Perhaps the most powerful moments were the exchanges of true sportsmanship and genuine respect on display between our players. How fitting of a karma circle conclusion that our teams ended up the season right where we began it back in March.”

Indian Creek congratulated its golfers with a championship parade upon their return to the prekindergarten through grade 12 school on a Wednesday morning in May. The team includes Severna Park residents Gavin Fridley and Ryan Hunsicker, Arnold residents Ben Grzeskiewcz and Sam Sussman, and other team members Zach Alford, Grace Casteel, Joelle Johnson, Katherine Ross and Ethan Thomas.
