Now Black and his team will look to push the program another step forward when it travels to Jasper today.

Black will take Parten, Courtney, Stone, McCaleb and freshman Sean Griffin to Musgrove to represent the Tigers. According to Black, he was blessed with a pool of dedicated, young golfers from which to choose.

In addition to having a wealth of young players, Black has also been able to rely on the senior leadership of Parten.
