LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Jeff Boys Golf program found out their season was ending on the first day of scheduled practice. For Head Coach Sue Beam, breaking the news to the four seniors on the 2020 roster was devastating. 

“It was the hardest thing I've ever done...because this was what we had waited for. This was their year,” said Beam earlier this week.

Beam said that this group was truly one-of-a kind, and the team’s dynamic won’t be the same without her senior bunch. 

Luke Riley earned all-conference honors in 2019. Coach Beam told us he’s been on the golf course almost everyday as of late. Riley is planning to attend Purdue this fall to study Accounting.

Eli Vanderkolk was entering his second year with Jeff Boy’s Golf. He will also attend Purdue this fall with plans to study Biochemistry.

Josh Cox was a four year letter winner. He will attend Ivy Tech in Lafayette this fall and is currently undecided on a major.

Clay Risner was a 4 year letter winner. He is planning on joining the Army as an airplane mechanic.

Beam wants Lafayette Jeff students interested in playing golf to try joining the team next spring.

“We're hoping to find some more young men from Jefferson that would like to come out and play for us, because we're ready to go we just need a couple more bodies to help us along,” said Beam.
