Thomas More Prep-Marian High School girls' golf coach Judy Mitchell's team might not have a ton of experience, but at least she has plenty participating.

The Monarchs have 10 girls out for the team -- the most in Mitchell's three-year tenure, but none of the girls have more than two years of experience playing on the high school level.

TMP will make its debut at 1 p.m. Monday at the Hays High Invitational at Smoky Hill Country Club.

"We have a lot of new girls," Mitchell said. "We haven't had a lot of time to practice, but when we have practiced, they have improved. They haven't had a lot of time to play, ... so Monday should be a test for us."

Junior Monica Michaud is the Monarchs' top returner. Michaud qualified for the Class 3-2-1A state tournament and placed 79th with a score of 132 last season.

She was one of three state qualifiers for the Monarchs last season, but Candace Staab and Brianna Haselhorst graduated.

"(Michaud) started new last year and progressed that far," Mitchell said. "Hopefully, this year she'll progress even farther. Consistency is what she has to work on. She has the ability, but she needs to work on consistency."

The Monarchs' four returners will fill out the top of the varsity lineup.

Michaud leads the group, playing No. 1, while junior Haileigh Jacobs, senior Emily Leiker and junior Jena Ernsting will play at No. 2, No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

Newcomers will make up the rest of the roster as seniors Jenna Schuckman and Andie Marsell will fill in the last two spots.

Mitchell said Schuckman joined the team after suffering an injury that knocked her out of volleyball, and Leiker played with Marsell this summer and convinced her to join the team.

The team lacks experience, but Mitchell said she is excited about the team's growth potential.

"They have some talent there that we can work on," Mitchell said.
