As the winter sports’ seasons come to an end, spring sports are scheduled to begin. Monday, March 16, was the scheduled date for the first practice for girls’ golf, and Monday, March 23, was the first scheduled practice for boys’ golf at AHS.
Head coach for the girls’ 2020 team is Mr. Weier. Head coach for the boys’ 2020 team is Mr. Ford, assisted by Ben Kern, an Algona High School alumni of 2008 who is volunteering. After losing several senior boys last year, there are still 20 students signed up for boys’ golf this year, including six seniors, eight juniors, one sophomore, and four freshmen. Coach Ford states, “I’m looking forward to working with a great bunch of guys and improving on our previous success here at Algona.”
Last year, the AHS golf teams had a good turn out of students involved. Senior, Shaylen Knapp, states, “See ball, hit ball, ball go far.” Her favorite part about golf is the meets. She enjoys meeting other participants from other schools.
Good luck to all the AHS golfers this season, whenever it starts!
