Centre girls’ golf fields four

Staff writer

Four Centre students are playing girls’ golf this fall. Junior Mickey Spohn and sophomore Avery Williams return from last year’s team. Freshmen Cecilia Rziha and Samantha Engler are newcomers.

Engler is following in the footsteps of her brother, Nathaniel, a Centre graduate who did well in golf. She said he has taught her fundamentals such as how to swing a golf club and hit the ball.

The girls are coached by Herington High School teacher Troy Biehler. He has been at Herington nine years, where he has coached numerous sports, including one year as assistant golf coach.

He said the girls are showing promise.

“They are picking up things well and have a good attitude,” he said. “They’re trying.”

Their first meet is Aug. 29 at Emporia.
