Waukon girls golf team will return five letterwinners for 2021

The 2021 Waukon girls golf team will be headlined with upperclassman leadership, but that veteran experience may be more limited than in typical seasons as those upperclassmen have not been on the high school competition course for nearly two years due to the cancellation of last season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Waukon girls golf coach Kathy McMillan also feels that last season’s pandemic absence will have additional impacts on her program, including the most evident impact of just one sophomore and no freshmen taking to the course this season for the Lady Indians.

“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and having to miss last season hurt my enrollment in the golf program,” Coach McMillan explained. “We were not able to work out in practice and build upon each golfer’s fundamentals. Not playing summer golf also hurt their skill improvement.”
