2015 Girls’ Golf Season Wrap Up


Since the girls’ golf team has a relatively short season, only lasting about two months, there is not much time to prepare for the regional, and potentially state, tournament. Junior Maddison Jarman, sophomore Gabby Cortez, and freshman Cassie Gomer all shot scores at regionals that were within 10 shots of the requirements to qualify for the state tournament, but junior Abby Radmanesh was the only Northwest girl to qualify.

With the trophy and potential scholarships on her mind, Radmanesh teed up at Topeka Country Club Oct. 20 for state. The tournament having taken place at Topeka Country Club made Radmanesh anxious.

“The hardest thing was that it was a course I have never played on, and it was just different.” Radmanesh said. While she did not know how she was going to place, Radmanesh knew she would be able to pull it together for a good score because she was focused all year and trained every day to make it to state.

Radmanesh’s training consisted of having a personal coach and taking lessons and playing on various teams and courses over the summer this year.

“I just had to get my step up and be more self-motivated,” Radmanesh said. She placed 22nd out of 92 girls at state and looks forward to coming back next year to place in the top 10.
