Sophomore Kyla Burton also regularly scored for the Bulldogs, but Scherzer said it will be up to her and fellow sophomores Abby Brown, Abby Ellis and Maddie Schuette to force their way into the rotation and help the Bulldogs finish out their scorers.
Scherzer said he isn’t worried about the talent and potential levels, but getting used to the level of golf St. Anthony competes at could be difficult for his young team.
“A lot of these girls haven’t played in big matches, some of these tournaments and invitationals,” he said. “Our tournaments are all big, Kankakee especially.”
When he returned to the team this year, Scherzer knew what the expectations were for his team, but didn’t expect to see the level of work ethic he saw out of the gate.
“The expectations are always high with St. Anthony golf, boys or girls, but I didn’t know I was going to see how much they’ve practicing,” he said. “They have so much potential to improve as long as we keep working. Our strength is our work ethic.”
They open the season today at 4 p.m. in the Charleston Invitational.
