Busy four days of golf for girls team as it prepares for WLT conference play
The OHS girls varsity golf team finished 16th at the Brookfield Central-Homestead Classic last week.. Cooney coach Jason Dahl said the 24-team field Â “was very good and a good measuring stick for us,” adding that day one for OHS “was a bit rough for us, some poor shots and tough pin locations.”
Added Dahl, “Day two was better. You can see we’re all pretty even right now. Our top three had a good showing. Every time we get out on the course, we are getting more consistent and trying to eliminate some simple mistakes.”
Senior Allie Dahlke was the leader for the two days, shooting a combined 187. One day one she shot a 96 (50-46) and on day two a team-leading 91 (47-44). Sophomore Alix Larson, inÂ file photo left, was second with a 191 two-day total. Larson shot a team-leading 95 (48-47) on day one and 96 47-49)on day two.

The senior shot a 7 on the first hole and did not recover. Dahl paid tribute to Quinette, saying she has continued to drop strokes since her first meet of the season.
