Tuesday the Falcons travel to Springfield with both boys and girls squads. Thursday both the boys and girls squads take on Worthington in Sanborn with all squads participating. Friday Springfield comes to town to finish off the week as both A and B boys and the girls team will play. Both squads are showing improvement and depth as several different golfers are scoring for both squads. Good luck to all of our golfers this week as they head out on to the course to represent Red Rock Central.
