Last season, the City College golf and wrestling teams won the Big 8 Conference and, according to the teams’ coaches, both are looking strong for another win this season.

The Panthers golf team’s win was aided by players such as Riley Sexton, Lauren Dahl and Chelsey Love, who all played well both during the conference and throughout the season.

Dahl has returned for another season and, according to Coach Tim Kiernan, is playing well along with newcomer Madison Holm.

“We have been very good in the past few years with our short game,” says Kiernan.

“I really like this year’s team,” says Kiernan, who is in his 15th coaching season at City College. “ They work very hard as a team.” 

Their key to wins this season is, “consistency,” says Kiernan.

One of them, Jasmine Bangnuis, from Basin Columbia College in Washington, “is highly competitive, has great stamina, and wants the ball every second,” says Oh. Bangnuis will be playing midfield.

Coach Oh says he expects every game to be a good match. “We have really strong and sound defenders,” Oh says. The key to wins this season, Oh adds, is that “attacking players need to score goals.
