The Score Sheet: New Hampton girl’s golf snatches gold, makes history

State Golf – Audio by Jason Rude

It’s history for the New Hampton Girls Golf team and not just because they won the school’s first golf title, but because they won by 59 strokes!

Head Coach Eric Olson has been at his post for nine years and then had back-to-back runner up finishes before grabbing gold.


He said the team battled through soggy conditions during the whole tournament.


As a team the Chickasaws shot 662 which is a state record low for 36 holes and held on to their 23-stroke day-one lead.

New Hampton comes away with three top ten finishers as a team which included Allison Nuss the 2A state runner up.


A reception was held Wednesday night for the girls and the boys golf team who finished sixth at the state golf meet last week.
