After a long off season, the Redhawk girls’ golf team swings into action Friday in their first tournament of the new year.

The team will head to Bridlewood Golf Course to tee off at 8:00 a.m. in the Vanessa Close Memorial Tournament.

“During the off season, a lot of the time it’s too cold to go out and practice or play on the courses,” senior Leslie Coyne said. “So instead we’ve been going to LA Fitness as a team to work out or we meet in Coach Glidwell’s classroom for stretching and drills.”

More than half of the golf team is made up of underclassmen, leaving a fresh new set of players for head coach Adam Davidson.

“The team is young and working hard,” Davidson said. “We are in a rebuilding year yet plan on competing like a program that has been to state seven times. Tradition never graduates.”

With so many new athletes, a fresh set of skills is being brought to the table, allowing for a sense of optimism.

“We have a lot of talent on the team this year,” Coyne said. “We should play well in these next few tournaments with a good chance of making it out of districts to play in the regional and state tournaments.”
