    We are very proud of girls and the accomplishments that have been made this past year without a golf course. Kudos to Coach Knox and the girls parents who have traveled around to courses in SD just to get some playing time in. It truly shows the dedication to the Pierre girls golf team. Again Congrats girls to a job well done.
