Lakeland golfers have two All-GNC first-teamers
Geiger named Player of the Year

The golf season was hit just as hard as any by the long winter, but that didn’t stop two Lakeland golfers from earning first team All-GNC honors. 

Curtis Geiger and Dan Donovan were each selected to the first team, and Geiger also took home Player of the Year honors.

“The short season was a challenge in a lot of ways, we didn’t get out on a golf course until sometime in May, so they both really did well,” coach Kim Wasserburger said.

Geiger’s Player of the Year honor was anything but a surprise, as he had been working toward achieving the feat for some time.

“Curtis told me in the weight room in mid-winter that [Player of the Year] was his goal, and that’s what he wanted to accomplish, and he followed through,” Wasserburger said.

Putting their skills as golfers aside, Wasserburger said that both Geiger and Donovan exemplify the true meaning of being a student athlete, and that the two are models of how Lakeland student-athletes should carry themselves.

“The most important thing I would say about both of these players is they’re just quality young men,” Wasserburger said. “They’re academic athletes, Dan was first in his class and Curtis also does very well academically. Who they are and the character they have fits the mold of who you want as an athlete.”

Looking on to next season, the T-Birds should be set to make another run at sectionals with the return of both Geiger and Donovan, who will be juniors in 2014.

“To make it to sectionals as a team was both a surprise and an expectation,” Wasserburger said. “It was great to get there as a team, and next year we should be very solid in the conference.”
