Benton Coach Travis Dirks said, “It was a beautiful day for golf, finally! We really struggled as a team today. A lot of the girls were unfamiliar with the course and had a hard time. Emma was her usual self firing a 52. Our team motto is “Think like a goldfish” used from the show Ted Lasso. We say this because a goldfish has a memory of 10 seconds. In golf you have to have a short memory and forget about the past and move on. We will forget about this outing and move on. We as a team know we will be better and we will get better as the weather improves and we are able to get outside more. I am confident we will improve, because I saw sad eyes that turned into determined eyes as we talked after the meet. These girls have what it takes to improve, and I am looking forward to watching it take place.”
