This year, girl’s golf was on a roll. Lowry had the two best golfers in the state, Chloe McClintick and Casey Kieser. The team won every league tournament and was 7-0 in the regular season. Every team hopes to be state champion, and girl’s golf was no exception, but despite their best effort, they fell a bit short. According to coach Brant Corak, the final last nine holes at state were the best they had played all season.
Junior Alyssa Parks was the most improved this season and, managed to cut twenty strokes off of her score Corak said. According to Corak, his favorite part about state was seeing how far the girls have come since the start of the season, and how hard they worked while participating during state.
Graduating seniors will definitely affect the golf team. However, Corak has a positive outlook on it. Corak said there are good golfers coming up. With time and practice they will be a very helpful part of the team.
To qualify for tournaments, the girls play nine holes in a weekly qualifier; the best six scores go to the tournament. Corak’s favorite part of this year’s season was just being able to play nine holes with the girls and not being seen as the one in charge but just as a fellow golfer. Corak is really looking forward to girl’s golf next season and can’t wait to be back on the course.
