The Grand County High School girls golf team is gearing up for their first match, a region contest scheduled for Wednesday, March 19 at the Moab Golf Club.

  First-year coach Jennifer McKay said that this year’s squad consists of nine girls, three of whom played for the Lady Devils last year. The returning players are senior Alexandra Gomez, junior Brook Schultz, and junior Molly Hines.

  “It’s going really well so far,” said Schultz. “Everyone seems to be enjoying it and the team has great potential.”

  Joining the trio of experienced players on the squad are junior Kali Balsley and sophomores Karissa Martin, Sophia Richardson, Brooklan Chant, Kyra Scovill, and Maecie Pierce.

  “The team is off to a great start,” said coach McKay. “Our biggest challenge right now is working on the fundamentals and getting them comfortable swinging a club.”

  “Some of these girls have never golfed before,” added McKay, who is being assisted Moab Golf Club pro Rob Jones. “But they have all been working hard and are looking forward to our first match.”
