The Little Falls boys golf team will have a new home this season as it sets to join the Granite Ridge Conference (GRC).
The Flyers return a pair of seniors, Thomas Smith and Jon Brill, from a team that placed eighth in the Central Lakes Conference and sixth at the Section 6AA tournament.
“I expect a lot from this team,” Little Falls head coach Joel Youngberg said. “I expect the seniors to show veteran leadership on the course, and even more importantly, at the practice facilities.”
“I expect the rest of the team to come to practice every day ready to improve,” he said.
Little Falls will have to take a wait-and-see approach with the newly-formed conference, Youngberg said.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to work with the players and watch them improve throughout the year,” he said. “I fully expect to be coaching a better team, player one through 30, at the end of the year.”
Little Falls is scheduled to open the season April 12 at Foley.
