Le Mars Girls Golf Finding Depth as Season Ramps Up

The Le Mars girls golf team is picking up steam midway through their season with a second-place finish in their home invitational Monday and a close loss to Sergeant Bluff-Luton on Tuesday.

The first three meets of the year for the Bulldogs have presented a big problem for head coach Dave Irwin. That problem is that he has too many girls that can give the team low scores on the varsity roster. He says that does give the team some reliability no matter who they go up against.

The fact that this many have an impact is impressive because, for most of the varsity roster, golf is not the only sport they are in. Metta and Mya Skov plus Kynlee Schmidt all competed in golf during the morning and afternoon the last two days then played soccer at night on both nights. Coach Irwin has appreciated their ability to still be committed to the sport while playing another at the same time.

Unfortunately, many girls scoring can lead to many girls with scores all over the place too. Coach Irwin says if the Bulldogs can reign the extreme scores closer together, they will be a dangerous team.

The schedule really ratchets up for the Bulldogs as they compete three times next week and have three meets in a row totaling 18 holes each to end the season. Coach Irwin says the Bulldogs will work up to that level as the season continues.

The Bulldogs are back in action in Sioux City on Tuesday, April 30 taking on Sioux City East and Council Bluffs AL at Whispering Creek Golf Course.
