The Lions are led by senior captains Praveen Sankrithi and Michael Brill, and the squad also includes returning letter winners Blake Duffin, Phil Schinner, Michael Dunham, Teddy Jennaro, Steve Evans, Nate Lepak, Jake Zimmerman and Jordan Liebe.

Newcomers Mitch Baker and Ryan Fischer are also expected to make contributions, and the junior varsity squad is also full of developing talent.

Coach Mike Jenders said, "We expect to put in a quality showing during the conference season, thanks to a strong contingent of experienced varsity players. In our non-conference quads and tournaments, we will look to juggle the lineup with an eye toward taking players to the Division 2 State Tournament in June."

Eisenhower kicked off the 2012 Woodland Conference season with a 4-3 victory April 3 Wauwatosa West.

"We have high expectations for Robbie," Scheidegger said. "He is very passionate about golf and he is excited that the season is about to get started. Mitch works hard at it and Lipski is kind of a natural. I think these guys are going to grow as the season goes on."

Jake Sperka and Steven Zeske should also be heard from this year.
