Cooney girls begin quest for conference title with third-place finish
Cooney girls varsity golf coach Jason Dahl says his team has a goal of playing bogey-free golf and this past week it came close when it finished third in its first Wisconsin Little Ten conference match of the season.
At Hon-E Kor, Hartford, the OHS girls shot a collective 193, just three strokes behind second-place West Bend. Beaver Dam, the pre-season conference favorite, shot 180 to win top honors.
“Â We were just a few strokes over bogey golf today,” said Dahl after the match “That’s our goal every time we get out and playÂ in a match. We’ll just keep working on the short game and putting to keep dropping two or three shots.”
Dahl reported that seniors Zoe Quinette and Allie Dahlke led OHS with 47s. “Zoe has been getting better in each match since the start of the season. It’s been really great to see her game and confidence improve. She has worked hard in practice on the things we’re asking her to improve upon. She just goes out and does it.” Sophomore Alix Larson shot a 48, just a stroke back from Dahlke and Quinette. Kalli Parra recorded a 51 to round out the top four scores.

Dahl also said, “The first conference match is always interesting to see where teams are and things are just the way we thought. We’re in the mix and we’ll get better.”
Oconomowoc played Thursday in the Arrowhead Scramble where it finished 13th out of 30 teams with a 4-under-par 68. Dahl said, “Each girl had some nice shots that really put in some good spots to make birdies. The girls also putted well on a few holes to save some pars.”
