The girls golf team qualified for divisionals for the first time in seven years after tying with Christian Brothers for second in league.

This year, they’ve only lost three matches.

Both times Christian Brothers and Rio faced off in a league match they tied.

Last year, the golf team lost to Christian Brothers by one point putting them in third place in league. This standing didn’t qualify them for divisionals.

The group of girls have a tight bond and are extremely proud of themselves for making it this far.

“Our team has had such a fun and successful season,” said junior McKenna Schinderle. “I am lucky to be apart of it.”

In the first league match, they tied with Christian Brothers. During matches, six players participate, but only the top five scores of those players count. A tie results in the sixth score being added. CB had the better sixth score and won. The next time the schools faced each other, they tied again, but this time, Rio pulled out the win.

“Throughout the season we have tied in almost every match,” said junior Maggie Schlieman. “At divisionals in Atwater we finally beat them and ended up second in the league.”

Junior Ashley Knepshield earned the spot as number one in the league for the third consecutive year.

Out of the seven teams the top 12 players are named All League: junior Emily Borg and Ashley Knepshield along with sophomore Emma Hutchinson were awarded this honor.

“It feels really amazing to win all league as a sophomore, and it’s so incredible representing my school and all of my teammates doing a sport I love,” said Hutchinson.

Head Coach Steve Kronick and Assistant Coach Marty Solov are extremely proud of their teams accomplishments.

During divisionals on Oct. 22, the team placed fourth out of 15 schools.

Although they were disappointed that they couldn’t move on to masters, beating CB was an achievement the team continues to celebrate.

“This golf season was one with tons of memories and accomplishments,” said junior Katelyn Kamilos. “All of the players made so many improvements with their swings and overall golf game. Even though golf is known to be a serious and competitive sport, the golf team makes it feel more fun and relaxed.”

The group of girls have a tight bond and are extremely proud of themselves for making it this far.

“Our team has had such a fun and successful season,” said junior McKenna Schinderle. “I am lucky to be apart of it.

The team doesn’t have any seniors so they hope to go all the way next year. Their optimism and enthusiasm is promising for their future as they continue their newfound success.
