Sherwood girls aim to get even better

The Lady Bowmen have a strong group of returnees


SHERWOOD — The Sherwood High School girls golf team seemed to have a positive 2013 season, finishing third in Northwest Oregon Conference regular-season play and fourth at the NWOC district tournament.

But the Lady Bowmen are aiming for even better things this year.

“The 2014 girls golf team is looking to improve from last year's competitive season,” Sherwood coach Kari Turner.

With all but one varsity player back from last year's squad, the Lady Bowmen look to have the potential to reach that goal.

Among the returnees for Sherwood are juniors Sarah Kotel and Mikayla Milne, who will serve as team captains. Turner described them both as great leaders.

Other returnees include juniors Sydney McNab, McKayla Aquino, Marissa Downey and Britnie Jacobsen. New to the team is freshman Kendal Pucik.

“We have a consistent team that can compete each week,” Turner said. “The seven girls will battle for the varsity spots each week. The girls have been working hard in the offseason and are excited to make an impact on the conference.”

Sherwood got its season off to a strong start, with a fourth-place finish at the NWOC opening match held March 17 at Sah-Hah-Lee. The Lady Bowmen had a score of 174 under the conference's modified scoring system.

The Sherwood girls also finished in fourth place at the NWOC tourney held April 1 at Broadmoor Golf Club.

On Tuesday, at a conference match held at Stone Creek Golf Club, Sherwood finished in a tie for third place with a score of 145 points under the league's modified stableford scoring system.

The Lady Bowmen will be back in action Tuesday when they competes at the NWOC tournament starting at noon at Chehalem Glenn in Newberg.
