Both squads return a strong nucleus of players and will be shooting for improving their finishes in the conference.
The girls team finished third in the Sub-Section meet last season, missing their second straight Section appearance by only four strokes. Mary Frandson qualified for the state tournament last year as a sophomore. With the top four golfers returning from that team, Mary Frandson, Rachael Larson, Lynn Stoneburner and Mackenzie Merrill, hopes are high for the girls team to return to the Section this spring.
The boys team will have big shoes to fill with the graduation of all-conference and Section qualifier Jeff Meyer. Ryan Mackedanz, a Section qualifier as an eighth grader, will anchor a young team for the Bulldogs. They will be pushing hard to challenge perennial state competitors Albany and Sauk Centre.
Members of the girls team are: Rachael Larson, Mary Frandson, Lynn Stoneburner, Mackenzie Merrill, Angie Jensen, Erin OíFallon, Katie Wright, Sally Heitke, Maria Janotta, and Melinda Norris.
Members of the boys team are: Matt Brossard, Ryan Stoneburner, James Gulbranson, Ryan Mackedanz, Josh Ryan, John Manthei, Sean Kruger, Ryan Wall, Mark Brossard, Ryan Frank, Joey Koshiol, Adam Ryan and Corey Schmitt.
