GIRLS GOLF SEASON PREVIEW: Highlanders focused on reaching state finals

Floyd Central returns top five players from last year’s squad



Senior Marissa Knoebel is the Pirates’ lone returning player this year. Charlestown coach Adam Doherty expects her to be more competitive this season after she worked hard on her game this summer.

“She has put in a lot of time over the summer, playing in leagues and different local tournaments, and I think she will be much improved from last year,” Doherty said. “I am looking for her to be one of the top golfers in the [Mid-Southern] conference.”


Sophomore Miranda DeKorte and senior Amber Skaggs are the lone returning players for the Generals. DeKorte got lots of course time as a freshman last year, while Skaggs has played sparingly the past two seasons because of injuries. Senior Brittany Moore is a newcomer to the squad.


The Braves return seniors Christina Fink and Sarah Potter this season. Fink was a third-team selection to the News and Tribune All-Area team last season.

Note: Christian Academy, Henryville and Rock Creek Academy will not be fielding teams this season.
