Prep girls golf preview: Tigers encouraged by young prospects
The Tigers are hopeful that a young crop of players will pay off down the road.
Coach: Nicholas Borisch
Assistant coaches: Larry Lind and Kiernan Smith.
Returning starters: Reese Smith and Katie Kyle.
Who are new faces on the team to watch? "Anneke Hoegen, Maya Siddiqui, Kendel Garner and Francesca Germano are going to be big hitters in the next few years," coach Nicholas Borisch said.
Team strengths: "How fresh we are. We have some returning players, but for the most part our team doesn't have much experience," Borisch said. "Most might say that would be a weakness, but I think that gives the coaches a big opportunity to mold these players into great golfers that we will be able to hold onto for the next few years."
Biggest challenge: "Unfortunately because of our inexperience, we won't be able to unlock most of our players' full potentials until the end of the season or by next fall, but I am very excited to see how much these golfers can grow by October," he said.
Coach's assessment: "I think we have been given a great opportunity this year by getting so many fresh players, along with some very talented coaches and returning players," Borisch said. We have a great chance to grow as a team and set Northwestern up to become a powerhouse for the next four years."
