Briley Rhodes, Assistant Editor

Chloe‌ ‌Kraus‌ ‌was‌ ‌the‌ ‌only‌ ‌girls’‌ ‌golf‌ ‌player‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌it‌ ‌to‌ ‌sectionals‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌Rockets.‌ ‌This‌ 
was‌ ‌her‌ ‌fourth‌ ‌appearance‌ ‌in‌ ‌a‌ ‌golf‌ ‌sectional.‌ ‌Kraus‌ ‌had‌ ‌to‌ ‌travel‌ ‌to‌ ‌Salem‌ ‌Country‌ ‌Club‌ ‌to‌ take‌ ‌place‌ ‌in‌ ‌the‌ ‌match.‌ ‌To‌ ‌say‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌windy‌ ‌would‌ ‌be‌ ‌an‌ ‌understatement,‌ ‌the‌ ‌wind‌ ‌was‌ ‌absolutely‌ ‌terrible.‌ ‌A‌ ‌number‌ ‌of‌ ‌66‌ ‌golfers‌ ‌competed‌ ‌in‌ ‌this‌ ‌match‌ ‌and‌ ‌Kraus‌ ‌placed‌ ‌17th‌ ‌with‌ ‌an‌ ‌84.‌ ‌I‌ ‌asked‌ ‌Kraus‌ ‌how‌ ‌her‌ ‌senior‌ ‌season‌ ‌went‌, ‌and‌ ‌she‌ ‌said‌ ,‌“It‌ ‌was‌ ‌a‌ ‌good‌ ‌season‌ ‌to‌ ‌remember‌ ‌and‌ ‌I‌ ‌will‌ ‌miss‌ ‌the‌ ‌girls.” ‌Then‌ ‌I‌ ‌asked‌ ‌her‌ ‌how‌ ‌her‌ ‌experience‌ ‌at‌ ‌sectionals‌ ‌was,‌ ‌she‌ ‌replied‌ ‌with‌ ‌“Sectionals‌ ‌wasn’t‌ ‌the‌ ‌worst‌ ‌weather‌ ‌I’ve‌ ‌played‌ ‌in‌ ‌but‌ ‌definitely‌ ‌the‌ ‌most‌ ‌diverse.‌ ‌One‌ ‌minute‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌80‌ ‌the‌ ‌next‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌60.”‌ ‌Congratulations‌ ‌on‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌successful‌ ‌high‌ ‌school‌ ‌season,‌ ‌Chloe‌, ‌and‌ ‌good‌ ‌luck‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌next‌ ‌level.‌
