2013– Golfers Third in First WLT Match

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. “ 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 play 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. Parra is pictured left in file photo by Malcolm McIntyre. 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....

OHS Golfers 16th at BCH, Edge Cedarburg by Stroke at Lake Geneva

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  “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, in  file photo left, was second with a 191 two-day total.

Dahl Expects Cooney Girl Golfers to Contend for WLT Title in 2013

Team finished second last year; returing veterans are the key Backed by a solid core of veterans, the 2013 OHS girls golf team, the second place team in the Wisconsin Little Ten conference last year, expects to be a contender for the title again this fall. Cooney coach Jason Dahl lost Sydney Snyder, a second-team all-conference choice from that team, but he returns two other second-team all-conference slections, senior Allie Dahlke and junior Carly Garcia. Last year Dahlke was sixth and Dahlke ninth in the conference for individual round scoring. Dahl said earlier this week that his 2013 could be “One of the strongest I’ve had in my six years in terms of experience.” Dahl add, “Allie Dahlke and Carly Garcia qualified for sectionals last year as individuals and should lead us throughout. Then Carly Paton, Kalli Parra, Zoe Quinette, and sophomore Alix Larson will help make a solid varsity squad. If those four kids can be under 50 for us on a consistent basis in conference matches, we’ll be hard to beat.” Quinette, a senior, is pictured right during a round at the Wanakee golf course earlier this week.

According, Dahl says he expects his team to “be in the mix” for the conference title with Beaver Dam and West Bend (a team that combines the East and West schools). “Both teams will be hard to beat. Abby Chase, by far is the best player in the WLT and one of the top 10 in the Milwaukee area, even the state.” Chase, a junior, the daughter of Beaver Dam girls golf and girls basketball coach...

Cooney Girls Golf Team Opens With 11th Place Finish at 24-Team Tournament

Dahlke leads OHS scoring; coach Jason Dahl calls the effort ‘a good start.’ Last week’s 11th place finish at the 24-team Milwaukee Pius IX girls golf tournament, according to Cooney coach Jason Dahl, “was a good start for us.” Local and state power Arrowehead, as expected, won the tournament with a low 325. Green Bay Notre Dame finished second, just 2.3 points behind. Beaver Dam, the only other Wisconsin Little Ten conference team competing, was fifth, with a 353. Oconomowoc’s 286 earned it a spot just outside the top ten finishers.  Beaver Dam’s Abby Chase shot a 72, one stroke behind medalist Anika Hitt of Homestead, wh9o recorded a 71. For Oconomowoc, senior Allie Dahlke led the way with a 93 (43-50). Helping her cause was a birdie on the par 5 third hole. Junior Carly Garcia was only a stroke behind at 94 (44-50). Kalli Parra shot a 99 (49-50) and sophomore Alix Larson came home with an even 100 (50-50), for the Raccoons. Highlights for OHS included Garcia’s birdie on the par 4 18th hole (her approach shot was within five feet of the green); and Larson’s chip shot on the par 5 13th, good for a birdie. Said Dahl after the tournament, “Every player had good stretches today, so that is encouraging, but we know we can definitely knock off 5 shots a...
