The Liberal girls golf team gets their chance to host a tournament Thursday at 3:00 pm at Willow Tree. The LHS girls golf team hosts Great Bend, Hays, Garden City, Dodge City, and Hugoton. LHS has seven girls out for golf after just having three play last year. The team consists of senior Emily Jackson, juniors Megan Campbell and Kaela Krueger, and freshmen Maddie Rees, Evan Sumner, Megan Hannah, and Jaime Brond. Second year head coach Kody Thexton says the girls are getting better. "We struggled at the first one but we've been improving every tournament," Thexton said. "The tournament I like to go to is the Hugoton Invitational where five out of six girls medaled and that was a big confidence boost. As far as the WAC tournaments go, it's pretty stiff competition but we've improved every tournament."
Thexton says he credits golf pro Chris Ewalt for much of the team's improvement.
