Holy Ghost Prep 2022 golf season preview
Head coach: Norm Muller, second season
Key golfers lost to graduation: Calen Sanderson (playing golf at the University of Notre Dame); Nick Henn; Cole Apeldorn; Sean Guard; Tyler Muller; Dan Raksnis
Key returnees: Senior Aidan Irons; junior Eric Holt
2022 season outlook: The Holy Ghost Prep golf program will begin life without Calen Sanderson this fall. Sanderson, the 2020 PIAA Class AAA state champion and 2021 state third-place finisher, is now a member of the University of Notre Dame golf team. Led by Sanderson and fellow seniors Nick Henn and Cole Apeldorn, the Firebirds finished seventh in the 2021 PIAA team district championships. In addition, Sanderson and Henn, qualified for the individual District One golf championship. Sanderson won the District 1 championship and moved to the PIAA Class AAA state championship where he finished third overall, one stroke behind the winner. From that eight-man 2022 HGP varsity team, the Firebirds graduated six players: Sanderson, Henn, Apeldorn, Sean Guard, Tyler Muller, and Dan Raksnis. With six of last year’s eight varsity players now gone, second-year HGP golf coach Norm Muller, a former standout golfer at Bensalem High School in the 1990s who went on to play Division I golf at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, will rely on his two returning varsity players, senior Aidan Irons and junior Eric Holt, to be the team leaders for the 2022 Firebirds. Other Ghost players to watch this season are juniors Shane Sullivan and Dominic Danese and sophomores Chase Strange, Angelo Seravalli, Robert Segarich, and Christian Henn.
