Girls Golf looks to Continue Winning Ways

      Girls golf is coming into the 2019 year of play with expectations to flourish, as they return a lot of production from the past couple of years. Two athletes from the Spartan golf squad qualified for state last year in 2018: Kaitlyn Dumler, and Isabel Knutson.

      They will look to inspire the team this year to take a shot at state, and a good one at that. The work put into the offseason can be described as ambitious, “I have worked with many of these golfers over the last three to four years, and it’s been a process by which they are progressing to the next level of competition.  It all starts with the players getting out on the course and playing a lot of golf. This past summer we had more golfers playing in the NJGT (Nebraska Junior Golf Tour) then in the past,” head coach Brian Bullington described. But as for what is the focal point of work before the season tees off, is working in the short game, the last 100 yards to the hole, as 70% of shots occur in this stretch of the course.

      Lead by two state qualifiers returning to the team, this season could be one for the record books, and excitement is at an all time high. As the Spartans start to compete in Thursday’s East High Invitational, they will look to compete against some of the best teams in the state, and put their way into a position to be successful.
