Clyde girls golf
Coach: Paige Atterholt.
Returning letterwinners: Junior Grace Pocock. Sophomore Brooke Newsome.
Others: Senior Hunter Schwochow. Junior Clori Hackenburg. Freshmen Margaret Hilliker; Felicity Hahl; Zoey Fairbanks; Maizie Myers; Kennedy Brown.
Outlook: It’s all about improvement for Clyde this fall. In the second year of the program, Atterholt said seven of the girls have never played golf before, so fundamentals will be preached early on this season.
“We are about as young as you can be,” she said. “It’s going to be a lot of me explaining the rules and going over things you can and cannot do on the golf course.”
Atterholt said the two returners, Pocock and Newsome, will be the leaders and will be relied upon this season.
“I just want these girls to improve from Day 1,” Atterholt said. “We have a lot of new girls and they’ve told me it’s harder than it looks, which is true in this sport. The biggest thing I keep preaching to them is showing them their first score of the year and then show them their last and I want to show them how much they’ve improved.”
