— The Moriah golf team has some holes to fill this spring, but the cupboard isn’t bare.

The Vikings lost three of their top scorers — Landon Cross, Carlo Calabrese and Keith Ida — from last season’s 6-4 Champlain Valley Athletic Conference team.

But there’s good news. Three regulars return. Dylan Scozzafava, Derek Brassard and Travis Nephew all played in the Moriah’s top six a year ago and return for Coach Lynn Galm.

New to the links for Moriah this spring are Wesley Belzer, Ryan Shpur, Cory Daly, Zach Beeman, Kyle Wilson, John Brassard, Nick Rotella, Brandon Hammond, Ryan Munson, Joe Stahl, Samantha Ida and Taylor Whalen.

“This year’s golf team should remain competitive after a 6-4 record last year,” Galm said. “Three positions in the top six will have to be filled due to graduation.  The key to our success will be rounding out the top six with three players that can shoot consistently.”
