The West Central Area girls golf team is a young one heading into the 2022 season. The Knights return three players from last year who have varsity experience, junior Lexi Hunter and freshmen Aubrie Schroeder and Joello Toso.

“We are a young team, and I'm hoping we can get some good scores in some of our meets,” head coach Chelle Dewey said.

Hunter was an All-Quad County Conference player last year, finishing with the ninth-best score out of all the golfers in the conference.

This season, the Knights will also be playing in the West Central Conference.

“We are participating in both the West Central Conference and the Quad County Conference, so there will be some courses that we haven't played before,” Dewey said.


Minnewaska, who finished fourth at the Class A State Tournament last season, was listed as the team to beat in the West Central Conference this year.

As far as newcomers go, Dewey listed freshman Emma Kaiser as a newcomer who could have an impact on the varsity this season.

The Knights compete in Section 6A. This season is Dewey’s second at the helm of the West Central Area girls golf team.
