With the team victory at Krooked Kreek on Thursday afternoon, the Cardinals have won two consecutive conference meets. The next meet is another conference meet at the Pheasant Hills Golf Course in Hammond. Coach Chad Salay stated his team has confidence at the next venue.
“We always call Pheasant Hills our second home,” Chad Salay said. “We play there so often. It seems like we play there four or five times a year. It’s a fair course, you can see everything out in front of you. It’s one of those courses where you can bomb it and then go find it. We feel like that’s an advantage for us because we have so much length. We’re comfortable out there and we feel like it fits our girls’ game.”
Previously, Prescott season and school golfing records have been broken at the Pheasant Hills Golf Course. Based on history and an experienced Prescott girls golf roster, Chad Salay expects his team to compete and continue posting winning scores at conference meets and tournaments.
The next conference meet is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 4 p.m. at the Pheasant Hills Golf Course in Hammond.
