New girls in the ranks for Clipper golf

North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN– A new season always brings changes to a team with athletes lost to graduation, and newcomers to the squad. For the Clear Creek Amana girls golf team, you can add a new coach to the changes for 2015.
Cam Stockman has taken the helm of the program, taking over for Nathan Carlson, who led the team last year. Brad Muhlenbruck, a veteran of over 20 years coaching golf, will assist Stockman.
The team returns three seniors, Sarah McGrath, Nicole Davis and Haley Mougin, with juniors Alison DeVore and Sidney Ballard. Sophomores Emma Davis, Ashlee Kopejtka, Megan Graff and Kalista Wilgenbusch add depth to the varsity ranks.
The new faces include juniors Alyssa Weldon, Ashley Prusha and Jacquelyn Fairholm; sophomore Allison Greathouse and freshman Chloe Beckler.
“We will have a pretty tough conference race,” Stockman said. “Williamsburg, (Dyersville) Beckman and Western Dubuque finished at the top of the conference tournament last year, so I’m guessing they will be the teams to beat again this year.”
The team graduated its top-three golfers: Gabi Scarpa, Anna Johnson and Whitney Schuttire. Stockman is encouraged by what he’s seen so far. “We have a great group of girls who are very willing to learn,” he said.
The season opens Thursday, April 9, as the Clippers host Center Point-Urbana at the Amana Colonies Golf Course located on 27th Avenue, just north of the Amana Elementary School, in Middle Amana.
