Nouvel Catholic Central High School’s Girls Varsity Golf team, coached by Jim Gaertner, is the largest we have seen in years! The team consists of 3 freshmen, 2 juniors, and 6 seniors. On August 30, 2023, the girls competed in their first match of the season in the Tri-Valley Conference Jamboree, hosted by St. Louis. Although the girls placed 9th out of 10 teams, the season is looking up for our Lady Panthers.
In an interview with senior, Ava Trevino, she stated, “The team is brand new and I’ve never played golf before, but I am practicing with the golf simulator. It is fun and that is the important part!” Likewise, a freshman Gabi Thiel said, “It is always so fun and I love spending time with the team!”
As the girls hit the course this season, we are excited to see them grow as they gain experience together as a team and individually. With access to Nouvel’s golf simulator, the team has an undeniable advantage over their competitors. No matter how their 6-match season progresses, it is refreshing to see our girl’s team growing and having fun as they learn the game.
