With the weather warming up, the BSM girls’ golf team is getting ready for another season. The girls are excited to make it an unforgettable season.  

The girls’ golf team is coached by Jay Meyerhoff and Bill Gorrill, and captained by senior Elle Dickey. Dickey believes the team’s most important goal of the 2019 season is to have fun. “This may sound a little cliche, but I think an important goal for this season is to have fun,” Dickey said.

To accomplish this goal, the girls have had multiple captain practices at the Braemar dome to prepare them for the season where the girls get to hit balls, work on their form, and build relationships. “The girls are looking great and the captain practices have really helped,” Dickey said.

The team lost an important senior, Maggie Sexton who was a really big aspect to the team last year. “She was our number one player last year so she will be missed,” Dickey said.

Despite the loss of Sexton, the team has gained many new talent, mostly young talent, making it one of the biggest group of girls BSM has ever had on the team. “We have almost a record number of girls, and they are mostly underclassmen which is great! Younger girls are going to keep the program alive,” Dickey said.

For the 2019 season, the BSM  girls’ will be practicing every day at Elm Creek, which is a new change this year, to prepare them for their matches and help improve their golf abilities overall. “We are at a new course so that will be really exciting,” Dickey said.
