Raiders bring back majority of team
The Lake Park-Audubon girls' golf team has its full roster back from the 2009 squad, which sent three golfers to the section meet.
But the only returning section golfer will be junior Autumn Ricke, who will lead a seasoned team in the 2010 season.
Depth is good, as a slate is back after seeing varsity time on the links in 2009.
"We have our full varsity team back," said LP-A head girls' golf coach Marge Beudine. "Our goal is to hit in the middle of the Heart O'Lakes Conference, so consistency will be key."
Returning with varsity experience includes Jessica Halverson, Maria Veit, Jessica Larson, Ricke and Cindy Schiffler.
There will be some good competition to fill the six varsity slots in practice.
Another advantage this season will be the fact that Beudine can coach the players during a meet.
"We'll be busy as coaches now, but it's good to be able to help the players out during meets now," Beudine said. "We'll be able to answer some questions and be like a PGA caddy for them."
