Outlook: If attitude translated to success, the Carey golf team could make an argument for being the top team in the league.
"It's our No. 1 strength: their attitude," Baker said. "The attitude overall is very good, despite us not doing well in the tourneys. They're eager to get better and I'm enjoying working with them every second. I enjoy being around them because they want to get better."
Baker said the attitude is a nice change of pace.
"It's very refreshing to have the attitudes they have. They know they have work to do and they do it," he said. "I think in the seasons to come, the sky's the limit.?
The team brings back just two letterwinners and Phillips and Wentling have taken their leadership role to heart.
"We're young and inexperienced outside of the top two guys. Their leadership skills are very good," Baker said. "Behind them, it's not quite as consistent. Phillips and Wentling still know they have a lot of improving as well and are trying to get consistent."
"There's a few teams at the top that will be tough to catch up with in Hopewell-Loudon and North Baltimore. Seneca East is another one who will be up there," Baker said. "We'd like to be in the middle of the pack. But we also realize that there are a lot of teams that will be tough to beat."
There's not a lot of pressure on our team and we're going to use that to our advantage and hopefully beat some teams."
