This is a chance to preview the 2006 season and for Coach Kirk Hogen's team. Returning are senior Paige Prosser, and juniors Anna Isaacson and Chelsea Gauer, who were letter winners last year. They are joined by some new faces and several JV members. They include Rachel Odens and Sara Bye, Kelsey Osborne, and eighth-graders Laura Hansen and Kristen Schwasinger. Also listed as members of the squad are the following seventh graders � Kinzie Huska, Lindsey Robinet, Krista Kuiper, Jessica Mortensen, Ellen Brown, Emily Van Den Hul, Tayler Tigert, and Shelby Covill.
"Keys to a successful season depends on two great young golfers in Anna and Chelsea," Hogen said. "We will be very young and someone will have to step up to fill some shoes."
