Having the daunting task of coaching both the boys’ and girls’ golf teams at Melcher-Dallas, Dennis Rowley, in his few years as head coach, has had no problem with the “coach-to-athlete” ratio. In fact, Rowley says that his more experienced guys have been helping the girls out during practice and act like “secondary” coaches to further everyone’s abilities. Rowley added that when everyone works together like that, they grow stronger as a team and individually on the course, especially during meets. He also said that the inter-squad coaching gives each athlete a feeling of security knowing that their other teammates, even if they aren’t technically on the same team , are looking out for them and cheering them on. The girls start their season this Thursday, while the boys tee off their season a week from Monday.
