Comments from Head Coach Lori Tiarks
 “We had two returning seniors this year, Jackson Woltmann and Grace Luna. They both golfed on the varsity team last year. I feel bad for them not being able to finish their senior year on the golf course. They have worked many years to be the leaders of the team and, like all the rest in the state, will miss out on the opportunity.  
 “It will be exciting to see what our sophomores and juniors can do next year. Several of them came up through the Junior Golf program, have participated since their freshmen year and are putting in a lot of time on the course this spring. The more they do this year will benefit them next season.  
 “We have a couple of new athletes that were joining the team this year along with the two incoming freshmen. I hope all of them decide to continue with the program next year.
 “It is difficult to speculate how the season would have gone because not only is golf so different round to round, but with our new golfers joining the ranks in the middle grade levels it changes the entire dynamic of the team. I am proud of all our past successes in the AHSTW golf program and hope for continued success as we move on to a new year.”
