A section championship appears to be within reach of the Blackduck girls golf team as the Drakes were in the top four a year ago and return their entire roster.

"We could be in the hunt," said Blackduck coach Jeremy Berg. "We don't have a sub-section in Section 7A and our goal is to peak at sections."

Leading the Drakes are seniors Faith Pomp and Erin Haws. Also returning are junior Oxana Pfannenstein, sophomores Morgan Young and Madison Stelton plus eighth-graders Kelsey Olson and Sasha Pfannenstein.

"We have 40 kids in the program from sixth grade to 12th grade," Berg said. "In terms of numbers we are one of the best schools in the conference.

The numbers at Red Lake also are on the rise, much to the delight of coach Gloria Collyard

"We're building every year and that is encouraging to see," she said, adding that this year 22 girls are out for the varsity and junior high golf programs.

"It's nice to see the numbers growing."

Among this year's cast are senior returners Heather Stillday and Shanise Rosebear. Stillday was Red Lake's top golfer last year.

Also back are freshmen Keia Roy, Daisey Mondragon and Parrish Barnaby plus eighth-graders Tatianna McClain and Brenna Pemberton.

"Heather has been with the program since sixth grade and is a great leader," Collyard said. "I'm hoping that she and perhaps a few other girls could make the Northern Pine All-Conference team."

The Panthers will be very young as sophomore Justine Jourdain is the veteran. The remainder of the team includes freshmen Skyla Robinson plus eighth-graders Kaitlyn Dahmen, Leilani Cloud and Miranda Richards.

"With the loss of three seniors last year this year is shaping up to be a rebuilding season," said CL-B coach Bryan Anderson. "Kayla and Miranda are returning varsity participants and we will be looking to them for leadership."
