Swinging for the Green

Girls golf is looking to dominate with returners and new blood.

The girls golf season is teeing off once again and they have their eyes on the prize. After last year’s season, the Sequoits have high hopes to shoot for low scores.

Although the the girls went 2-7 last year, the freshman hope to fill in the shoes of the graduated players and show not only the team, but also the school what they are capable of. The returning players also striving to be better golfers and even better role models to the younger players for this season.

“I hope to continue to shoot low scores for the team and to continue to shoot the lowest score,” junior Madison Maish said. “[I want] to help our team averages to allow us to place in tournaments against other schools.

Shooting lower averages is a common goal among the girls. They all want to do what is necessary to bounce back from last season, especially senior captain Emily Pederson who had to take last season off to recover from her knee injury.

“I didn’t play last year because of my knee injury,” Pederson said. “However, I am excited to be back playing with my team.”

A new season is not the only thing varsity girls golf is excited about. Since there are more players than the previous year, there is a better opportunity to create new relationships.

“We have more people and incoming freshman which means we finally have enough girls for a varsity and a JV team, which is super awesome because more people are playing the sport and there are more friendship opportunities,” Maish said.

With even more golfers and competition on the green this season, make sure to keep an eye out for the girls tennis team as they drive for success.
