Cedar Crest Golf Season Outlook

     Cedar Crest Falcons 

Lancaster-Lebanon League Section 1

Head Coach: Drew Gates – 3rd season

Key Returning Players: Luke Campbell (Sr.), Dayton DiBiaso (Sr.), Ethan Rader (Jr.), Carson DiBiaso (So.), Dylan Ramsey (So.)

Key Newcomers: Tyler Angelo (Sr.), Dawson Behney (Sr.), Isaac Wolfe (Jr.), Davin Kolter (Fr.), Jackson Seidel (Fr.)

Key Losses: Ben Feeman, Jillian Fidler (Berry College)

Outlook: Last season, Cedar Crest set the standard for the Lancaster Lebanon League as they went on to win the League Championship (AAA) over Manheim Township, with Ben Feeman defeating Dylan Ramsey in a playoff to secure the individual championship.  The Falcons sent five golfers to the District 3 Championship where they finished 2nd as a team.  They then qualified three for the PIAA State Golf Championship Tournament, with Jillian Fidler joining Feeman and Ramsey.  In what was a shock to many, the freshman Ramsey won the State Championship (See article: A freshman can’t win. Ask Dylan Ramsey).

Ramsey will now headline the Cedar Crest team as he enters his sophomore season as the reigning State Champion.  He will be joined by a talented group, which includes senior Dayton DiBiaso and junior Ethan Rader, who both qualified for Districts in 2022.  Sophomore Carson DiBiaso will also continue to contribute, something he did in several matches last season.  There will no doubt be strong competition for the top five spots on this roster, but it’s friendly high-level competition that has aided Coach Gates’s squad in recent years and will most likely advance this group to new heights (read our article about this culture).  If all goes according to plan, they will challenge for the Section 1 and the LL League titles this year, then get several players into Districts.
