The LHS golf teams kicked off their season March 1 with a regular 5-day per week schedule.
At practice, players are busy hitting range balls, chipping, putting, and on other occasions, they can be found playing the 9-hole course at Bryden Canyon in Lewiston.

Girls Varsity Golf
In the past, the girls’ team alone has claimed three state titles. They have also placed second in the state three times, third in the state three times and fourth in the state four times under Coach Greg Macmillan.
Both players and coaches are optimistic about this season. Returning golfers on the varsity girls team include senior, Teagan Kramasz, junior, Teryn McCarthy, and sophomore, Abigail Tellez.
The girls’ team also has five freshmen that could see some varsity play.

Boys Varsity Golf
The boys’ team has placed third in the state for five seasons under Coach Shawn Nilsson.
The program has been successful, but after being down the past few years, they hope to reclaim the state title in the season to come.
