The Archbold girls golf team has many strong pieces returning for the 2022 season. In light of that fact, they hope they can capture their second straight Northwest Ohio Athletic League girls golf title.

A notable returnee for the Blue Streaks is senior Brayton Huffman. She was a sectional champion a year ago, along with being named first team All-NWOAL.

Fellow senior Carly Grime (first team All-NWOAL) also returns. Also back for the Streaks are Aniyah Copeland (honorable mention all-league) and Gabby Rodriguez.

They will have to replace Alli Bickel who was second team All-NWOAL in 2021.

New coach Anna Boyers thinks her team’s difficult early schedule will help get them prepped for a rigorous season.

“Our season starts off with some competitive invitationals at Highland Meadows, Auglaize, and White Pines for the Perrysburg Invite. We are excited to compete in these invitationals to prepare our team for the rest of the season,” Boyers said.

Overall, Boyers is encouraged by the team she has going into the 2022 campaign.

“Looking forward to a competitive NWOAL this upcoming year. We have several returning letterwinners and many newcomers who will add to the strength of our team,” she said.
