Girls golf was the first sport to resume for the fall sports season. Coming off a successful season compared to years past, it will be interesting to see how the team will fare this year as they have only gotten better. While the team has lost two players, they’ve had one return from injury. The team does have a tiring start, as they start the season with six games in a 17 day time span. 

“The team is hoping to have at least one player reach regionals,” coach Tosha Embry said. This is going to be Embry’s 8th season coaching the girls team. She has had experience playing golf in both highschool and college, so her expertise about the sport has helped improve all the golfers on the team. Embry also said she is hoping the team plays strong against Mid-Southern Conference (MSC) teams.

Individually, “I need to improve on not getting nervous before I hit. Being around other golfers can be quite nerve racking,” said senior Sara Vaughn. She was hoping that she could stay in the 55 range score wise. 

While the team is short on players, they still seem to be happy with their chances .

“Even though we are short on players, I feel like we are still doing good as our scores are lower. I think we are working better and harder this year as we are more motivated,” junior Emily Kaiser said. 

 The team played in the Corydon Central Sectional on September 19, and scored a team score of 446. Karena Knight advanced on to Regional as an individual with a score of an 88. Knight will play at the Washington Regional on September 26 at Country Oaks Golf Course at 8:30.
