The Lindbergh girls golf team is driving for a championship win this season after posting a 7-1 overall record in 2021.

After posting a record of 7-1 overall in 2021, the Lindbergh girls golf team is focused on one thing this season: qualifying as a team to the state championships.

“Last year we were a really young team but I think that the girls have worked really hard since October of last year,” Lindbergh head coach Mike Tyler said. “Our goal is to improve on the weakest parts of our game because we have a lot of experience coming back.”

Leading the Flyers in 2022 will be sophomore Reese Reinhardt, a six-time match medalist and runner-up finisher at last year’s conference championship.

“Reese is always in the hunt to win a tournament,” Tyler said. “Her dad coaches at Washington University so I’ve been watching her for a long time. She’s very poised and methodical about how she approaches the game.”

Senior Sydney O’Brien will serve as co-captain this season along with classmate Catrina Conroy.

“Sydney is pretty consistent and a great team leader,” Tyler said. “She’s the type of golfer that always comes in with a mid 40s score. It appears that she’s going to be a little more focused on golf this year which is exciting.”

Conroy is known as a solid player on the links and one of the leaders on this year’s squad.

“Catrina is a solid player when she keeps her emotions in check,” Tyler said. “She has the capability of playing well as she seems more mature this season and is taking on more responsibilities with the team this year.”

Juniors Mila Snowert and Brooke McKenney are another pair of players that have showed significant improvements over the course of the past year.

“I saw Brooke and Mila a lot over the summer at Tower Tee,” Tyler said. “Brooke’s mechanics are solid and I’m really looking forward to seeing how her short game has improved this season. Mila has been taking lessons and she appears to be very focused on improving her game.”

Maddy Boyd is another sophomore with some family background in golf and is poised to make an impact on the Flyers lineup in 2022.

“Our goal is to get Maddy in as many 18- hole events as possible,” Tyler said. “She’s been getting a lot of good instruction in the offseason from her dad who previously coached at Fox.”

The Flyers open the 2022 campaign against Mehlville and Eureka Monday, Aug. 29 at the Columbia Public Golf Course in Illinois with a 3:30 p.m. start.
