Four Warrior golfers were named to the Three Rivers Conference All Conference Team, and not only that, but all three seniors finished as the top three golfers in the conference.
“I can’t say enough about these three seniors and the hard work they put in this season to improve,” said coach Jacquelyn Hauser. “They all provided great leadership to our team and we will miss them next year.”
Katie McCarthy – “Katie finished first in the conference, which is a tremendous accomplishment for her!” said Hauser. “She played consistent golf all season and just missed qualifying for the state tournament. Katie’s power in her golf swing is truly amazing as she was one of the longest hitters in the conference and worked hard to control her power.”
Jennifer Ely – “Jennifer finished second in the conference and she too played consistently all season. Jennifer worked hard on her game and really started showing improvement later in the season which allowed her to finish sixth in the section tournament and qualify for state,” said Hauser. “Jennifer has an overall solid game. Not only was she one of the longer hitters in the conference, but she also has great touch around the greens.”
Paige Langen – “Paige finished third in the conference behind her other two senior teammates,” said Hauser. “Paige too played consistently and showed a great attitude all season. Paige worked hard on her short game which resulted in one of the best short games in the conference. Paige is a very consistent player who can keep the ball in play and save strokes on her short game which allowed her to keep her scores low.
“Overall, the three seniors did a great job of leading our team and playing consistent golf for us,” said Hauser. “We always looked to these three to come in with low scores and they did a great job of pushing and competing with each other to do so.”
Katie Meyer – “Katie finished sixth overall in the conference which is a great achievement for her,” said Hauser. “Katie really worked hard to improve this season and stepped up to fill that #4 spot we were looking for. Katie does a great job of pushing herself to becoming a better golfer and we will look to her to be a leader of the team next year. With Katie’s hard work ethic I am expecting some great things from Katie this summer and look forward to what she can do next year.”
