Lady Cadets making a mark


Garrett Duncan, Staff Writer

The girls golf team has made major improvements to their swing this season.
The ladies started off strong winning matches against North Putnam and Greencastle, beating North Putnam by 18 strokes on a nine hole course with a par of 36.
Brownsburg and Danville both put up a good fight and gave the Lady Cadets their first loss of the season. Their next match at Cool Lake Golf Club saw the ladies placing 14th of 17 teams.
The Cadets have made major off season improvements. Leading the way on a nine-hole scores are seniors Dixie Short, 46, Anna Littrell, 50, Micah Campbell, 56 and a 58 by junior Grace Engel.
Coach Marshall stated that he was looking for low scores and that the ladies have really put in the work to be at that level. Marshall was impressed with Campbell who has brought her scores down from the 60s to the 50s.
“That’s really good for us. Micah stepped up and Grace stepped up and I’m not upset by what we have been shooting.”
Coach Marshall goes on to explain some struggles that the team has been facing this year by only having a four person roster. Short states, “Being as small as we are, I think we are doing pretty good this season and we’ve definitely improved at every single match and are just preparing to dominate at sectionals.”
Many schools have not been affected by roster changes like the Cadets. Coach says that some of the girls have really put in work over the off season and to be able to improve from the very get go.
The Lady Cadets are focusing all efforts into the conference match at Tri-West on September 1st.
“I always have high hopes that we could win a conference and hope that we will place middle half or top seven, and I’ll be happy with that,” says Coach Marshall.
The girls have a very rigorous schedule ahead of them and plan to make the most out of the season.
