2019 season outlook: The Holy Ghost Prep golf team begins Life after Liam this fall. Liam Hart, the 2017 PIAA Class 3A state champion who finished third at the 2018 state championships, continues a recent pipeline of top-shelf Holy Ghost Prep golfers to play collegiately at Drexel University, joining Chris Crawford ’12 and Steve Cerbara ’16. But four key performers—Calen Sanderson, Ryan France, Nick Henn, and Tyler Schmidt—are back in the fold for Firebirds. That quartet of golfers will be the backbone of the program for the next couple seasons and should blossom under the tutelage of Holy Ghost Prep coach Mark Walder ’02, the 2018 BAL Coach of the Year who was recently recognized by Golf Digest as one of the magazine’s “Top Young Golf Teachers in America.”
