GOODLAND, KS — One of the most successful athletic programs in recent years for Goodland High School has been the Goodland Cowgirls golf team. 2017 saw GHS take third at state and then just last season the Cowgirls came up just short of winning it all, coming in second and taking home the runner-up trophy. So you can understand why the team wants to take the next step in 2019.
“This year as a team I hope we take first,” said senior and top golfer Kerrigan Rudolph.
Rudolph has had quite the career in her time golfing as a Cowgirl placing third at state as a sophomore and then placing second as a junior last year.
“I hope to take first as well as an individual” Rudolph continued.
Rudolph leads the way for a golf team that has quite a bit of experience coming back. Fellow seniors, Brooke Livengood, Colby Perryman & Peyton Beldon all hope to lead Goodland to a state championship.
“I’ve got four seniors this year that are that have some good experience in tournaments and a couple of them have been state medalists, so that is a real plus for us but I would love to get that five, six even that seventh girl up to their level.” said head coach Connie Livengood. “I think this team is going to do some good things.”
Coach Livengood would also love to see the girls put pressure on other people early on in the season and let people know that they are here to have a big year.
Cowgirls begin their season Thursday down in Hugoton.
