SPRING SPORTS 2018: PAGE 3 PRESS & DAKOTAN ? PLAIN TALK Girls’ Golf Gazelles Look For Return To Top Five BY JEREMY HOECK jeremy.hoeck@yankton.net With three golfers from last year’s state tournament squad, the Yankton High School girls’ golf team will be looking to crack the top-5 in 2018. The Gazelles finished sixth a year ago at the Class AA state tournament but return the sophomore trio of Peyton Tramp, Morgan Strahl and Josie Krajewski from that squad. Tramp (tie-22nd) and Strahl (tie-25th) were both named to the All-Tournament team, while Krajewski tied for 43rd place. “The three we have back is a good place to build from,” head coach Brett Sime said. “Morgan has the most experience, and Peyton has been playing really well last couple of years, and Josie got some great experience last year,” he added. “It’s a good trio to have for a good foundation.” With the graduation of three seniors, Strahl is now the most experienced golfer for the Gazelles. She has competed in three state tournaments in her career, and Yankton has finished fourth, first and sixth in those years — she was on the state title team in 2016. Yankton will also return a handful of other golfers who saw varsity or junior varsity action a year ago. Also on the Gazelles roster are Olivia Larson (Sr.), Abby Becker (Jr.), Kasey Erickson (Jr.), Megan Haselhorst (Jr.), Ashley Muller (Jr.), Halle Stephenson (Fr.), Morgan Sundleaf (Fr.), Lily Diedrichsen (8th), Jillian Eidsness (8th), Shae Hanson (8th), Tatum Hohenthaner (8th), Ellie Novak (8th), Gracie Brockberg (7th), Ella Hosmer (7th) and Elsie Larson (7th). “We have some younger girls who have shown some promise,” Sime said. “It’s a good, solid base for us.” Yankton will host three home events: a quadrangular on April 19 (Hillcrest), a triangular on May 1 (Fox Run) and Boys’ Tennis Veteran Bucks Set For Season BY BRYCE LADWIG BOYS’ TENNIS sports@yankton.net EDITOR’S NOTE: This article appeared in the March 27 edition of the Press & Dakotan. It has been updated to reflect the ongoing season. Yankton High School boys’ tennis will see Ryan Hage take the mantle for his third season as head coach. He expects the team to fulfill the amount of promise they have shown over the previous seasons. “We have been looking forward to this season the last couple of years.
