The Forest City High School girls golf team has begun practicing a few weeks ago under the new coach Tom Pauley and three girls on the roster.
Juniors Jessa Loges and Greta Oulman and senior Makayla Kingland make up the roster for this year’s golf team.
Kingland said because their roster numbers are low, the team needs to recruit more people, but most of all the team needs to work on staying confident and not letting any misses get them down.
“Last year it was a problem and people kept getting in the dumps, which is bad because golf is a mental game,” Kingland said.

With improving their mindsets and having more confidence in themselves, Kingland said the main goal for the team is to get to district and state competitions and use the smaller meets for more one-on-one time with their new coach.
“We could do good; we could do bad,” she said. “I don’t know, but I’m hoping pretty good.”
One challenge the team will face is qualifying for a team, as golf rules say there needs to be four people on a team to be a team, so Kingland said they are trying to recruit their last member.
“It’s learning,” she said. “You can easily learn, but it takes time to get good.”
