Outlook: Powers said the Tigers are getting better as they head further into the season, but the progress has been difficult.

“Girls have been working hard on grip and swing fundamentals and are improving as school nears,” Powers said. “Our girls are hard workers, who have jobs and participate in lots of activities during the summer and they haven’t had lots of time to fine tune their golf games.”

Still, Powers is hopeful his squad can be competitive in the Northern 10 Athletic Conference.

“Our goal is to finish in the top half of the conference,” Powers said. “We finished in third place (out of five girls teams in the N10) last season and we want to build on that. Buckeye Central is the favorite to win the league, but we want to work to close the gap.”
