COLFAX — With one meet already under their belts, seven girls have been preparing for the rest of the golf season as members of the Colfax team. This is the third year the Vikings have had a girls’ golf team and the numbers have been steadily increasing for coach Kimberly Myers, who has been the coach all three seasons.
The team is a mixture of experience and inexperience when it comes to actual high school competition, Myers said.
“Senior Hannah DeMoe returns after qualifying for the sectional meet last year,” Myers said. “Juniors Hannah Yingst and Kaely Rieck both competed for us last year and continue to improve. Another junior, Megan Schleusner, is out for the team for the first time but plays during the summer. Amanda Christianson is a sophomore out for the first time and also has spent time on golf courses but not in a competitive setting, and freshmen Hannah Sykora and Abby Klueckmann are already improving just from our first few practices.”
Team goals this year include finishing in the top five of at least one tournament and as far as individual goals, getting one or two girls into the sectional meet or beyond is always something to strive for.
“I set my goals high every season and after working hard all summer, I want to get to state,” DeMoe said. “That’s my plan!”
The team participated in a scramble at Barron Aug. 14 and finished tenth of 12 teams with a score of 89.
