Head coaches: Brent Donaldson

Returning golfers:

  • Boys: Ryan Manahan, sophomore
  • Girls: Delaney Koecher, sr.; Riki Mae Duevel, sr.

First meet: April 13 at Rush City

Team strengths: "Delaney Koecher was a state Class A individual qualifier in 2019 and looking to return to state," coach Brent Donaldson said. "Ryan Manahan has improved his game and I am anxious to see what he can do in Section 7A this season."

Biggest challenge: "With only three returning varsity players, we are in a rebuilding mode," Donaldson said. "Not being able to play in 2020 due to the pandemic was extremely unfortunate for our program. However, a lot of new young players will get a great opportunity to play at the varsity level, thus helping us rebuild our golf program."
