2007 Season Summary
The varsity golf team had an awe-inspiring 2007
campaign, posting a regular season record of 17 wins and
4 losses. In tournament play, Avon finished second in the
2007 Coppola Cup. Finding themselves behind by five
strokes in the first week, the team rallied during week two.

a strong Kingswood team. In the Founders
League Championship Avon played well finishing in second place.
Finally, the Winged Beavers capped-off their season by winning the
Co-Captains Spencer Bova and Nick Sica were the
backbone of the 2007 squad. In addition to playing consistent
golf throughout the spring, both were able to finish a
match as medalist (lowest score). Rounding off the varsity
ladder were Kurt Goetjen, Jon Gurry, Peter Seltenright,

For the second year running, Spencer Bova earned the
Tom and Dottie Prunell Most Valuable Player Golf Award.
After earning a varsity letter in his freshman year, Spencer
has continued to develop as a golfer. In 2006 Spencer
impressed the league by winning medalist honors in the
KIT. This season Spencer has continued his solid play
and finished the year with the lowest 9-hole stroke average
(37.7) on the team.
Peter Seltenright proved to be the team’s 2007 Most
Improved Player. Peter narrowly missed making the Avon
golf team during the 2006 season. Most juniors would
be discouraged by this, but Peter was not. Instead, Peter
concentrated on his game in the off-season and became
one of the foundational players on this year’s team. Peter’s
level-headed playing style often gave him the upper hand
Varsity golf will miss its senior class next season. Kurt
Goetjen, Jon Gurry, and Peter Seltenright have been very
consistent this year and leave big shoes for members of the
AOF JV squad to fill. Congratulations and best of luck in
college next year!
