DARLINGTON - During 28 years as a Lafayette County Sheriff's Department patrol sergeant Darlington boys golf coach Jim Poss always envisioned a chance at coaching.After finally retiring from the department, Poss couldn't wait to start the season. "I decided I love golf, I love kids and I love teaching," Poss said about his decision to coach golf. "Like my wife said, 'It was a no-brainer.' I have been looking forward to it."Despite a blustery wind and pesky rain that made chipping out of sand traps an adventure, Darlington defeated Pecatonica-Argyle in a landslide 169-239 Monday at the Darlington Country Club.
