Before the 2016 high school links season began, Bob Simons set some pretty ambitious goals for his team. Wallenpaupack Area's Hall of Fame skipper believed his boys could duplicate last year's feats, possibly even surpass them. And, when you consider what last year's feats were … well, you begin to get a feel for how confident Coach Simons was with this particular squad. In 2015, Paupack captured team titles at the league, district and regional levels. The Bucks advanced to the PIAA state tourney and finished fifth among the Class AAA teams.
