The Cumberland Valley Boys Golf Team has won the Mid Penn Championship the past 13 years, the girls the past three. On September 27th, both teams will compete at Dauphin Highlands in a fight to defend their Mid Penn title. Senior Anthony Depietress and Sophomore Megan Fenton are two key players if the Eagles are going to bring home the title.

Depietress is a captain and one of the top boys on the team with an average of 74.3 his senior season.

“I feel very confident in the ability of my team and what we can do coming down to the finish line. I know that if everyone can just play their game and continue what they’re doing from tee to green, we have good potential,” Depitress said.

With Depietress graduating this year, the big question is what are his plans for the future.

“I do have plans after high school to attend college and pursue my dream of playing collegiate level golf. I am in the midst of the recruiting process right now, and coming closer and closer each day on deciding where I want my home to be for the next four years,” Depietress said.

Depietress has been playing since he was a freshman and has only gotten better since.

“I have made massive jumps in committing to different shots and a routine. Also once I learned my role on the team and what I need to bring to the table to play my best golf, the mental side of the game became much easier,” Depietress said.

Sophomore Megan Fention is the top girl on the team with an average of 83.

“I’m very confident in not only our team's ability to make it far, but also for our players individually to make it far. I think we have a really good chance to win districts and place in states,” Fenton said.

Fenton, only being a sophomore, still has two years left on the high school golf team.

“My goals for the next two years are just to keep getting better and trying to put up scores that I’m proud of, as well as continue to do good as a team,” Fenton said.

Fenton moved to Mechanicsburg from Germany her freshman year and proved she wasn’t here to mess around.

“I think not only have I gotten better at the game as a player but also keeping my composure on the course and working on my mental game,” Fenton said.

Districts are October 7 and 8 at Briarwood Golf Club, followed by the State Playoffs October 17th, 18th, and 19th at State College’s White Course.
