Key returners: Emma Ritterman, Sr.; Tonya Berg, Jr.; Megan Middaugh, Jr.; Taylor Martin, So.

Coach's comments: "The Spartans are returning a lot of good players from last year’s team. The majority of our girls had an opportunity to play at the varsity level at some point last season, so hopefully we will build on that experience. We have a really great group of girls that have set goals of preparing themselves to compete at every event."

Fargo South

Key returners: Adie Wagner, So.; Ellie Wilcox, Jr.; Taylor Struck, So.; Isabelle Osland, Jr.; Dayna Wiley, Jr.; Miriam Duncan, Sr.; Mia Aarestad, Fr.

Coach's comments: "We have been fortunate to only graduate two players in the last three years. A lot of our girls will be starting their fourth year of varsity golf. I am hoping that our skill will continue to grow like it has the last couple of years. Our goal is always to get better in at least one area from the previous year."

West Fargo

Coach: Paula Pierson (third season)

Last season: ninth in Eastern Dakota Conference

Who's gone: no one.

Key returners: Anna Wohl, Sr.; Ashley Johnson, Sr.; Tori Worner, eighth grade.

Coach's comments: "It definitely helps that we have everybody returning, plus we picked up a few this year. I am very excited that we have some youth in our program. I think we're going to fall somewhere in that seventh, eighth, ninth ranking in the EDC. What it really depends on is how much did they play in the offseason and what do these newcomers bring to us. I'm really excited to see that."

West Fargo Sheyenne

Coach: Dan Wolf (fifth season)

Last season: sixth at state meet

Who's gone: Maggie Manson (state runner-up), Allison Schmidt, Jessica Koerselman, Kate Anderson and Mollie Gast.

Key returners: Lexi Bartley, eighth grade; Brianna Mohs, Sr.

Coach's comments: "It's hard to know what to expect from this season. You don't just reload when you lose the type of experience and consistency from graduation like we did. First we'll see who shows up and then go from there. We are expecting several golfers back who challenged for varsity spots last year who definitely have the ability to compete at the varsity level, but we will have to temper our expectations to a degree knowing how inexperienced we'll be. We'll really just focus on having realistic expectations for our new golfers early in the season and try to build toward playing our best golf at EDC and hope that will be good enough for us to qualify for the state tournament."
