  • Niwot girls golf preview: small but talented team eyes return to state

    Jocelyn Rowley|Mar 16, 2022

    What the 2022 Niwot girls golf team lacks in size it more than makes up for in talent, and the tight-knit group should be a force to reckon in the postseason, sixth-year golf coach Ed Weaver said. Led by three-time state qualifier Sydney Rothstein, the six-member team features a balance of returning talent, plus some "exciting" new players who will add depth and give the team a competitive edge. "Last year I had a senior, junior, sophomore, and freshman, at the state tournament," Weaver said. "S...

    Jocelyn Rowley|Jun 23, 2021

    The Niwot girls golf team didn't win any titles at the 2021 Class 4A state championships, but after a resilient performance during the grueling tournament at Common Ground golf course in Aurora, head coach Ed Weaver sees a bright future ahead for the youthful squad. "It's a tough two days," he said after his team's 10th-place finish in the two-day event, held June 21-22. "It's long, emotional, and there are highs and lows. But we had a lot of fun, and the learning that happened, especially for...

    Battling high temperatures and pesky tree-lined fairways, the Niwot girls golf team held on for second place at the 2021 Region 3 tournament, and qualified as a team for the upcoming Class 4A state championships in the process. For Cougar head coach Ed Weaver, the hardest part of challenging for the 2021 state title is now behind them, at least from one perspective. "It's harder to get to state because the regional is a one-day event, and if you don't play well, you go home," he said after the J...

    Fourth-year coach Ed Weaver has sky high expectations for the 2020 Niwot girls golf program, and it's not hard to see why. His projected varsity squad is loaded with state-tested veterans who are eager for another chance at the Class 4A title, and he's attracted a cohort of newcomers eager to make their marks.

  • Niwot girls kick off 2019 with league win

    Jocelyn Rowley|Mar 27, 2019

    After nearly two weeks of bad weather and snowy course conditions, the Niwot girls golf team finally made its 2019 debut on March 20 in Northern League Event #1 at the Olde Course. If the lengthy delay had any effect on Niwot golfers, it wasn’t evident in their play or their scores. In fact, it may even have been an advantage, as three Cougars set brand new career-best marks on the day, as Niwot cruised to the team title by 36 strokes. One of those new PRs was for junior Julia Solem, who c...

    Jocelyn Rowley|Mar 13, 2019

    The Niwot girls golf team found its way back to the Class 4A state tournament in 2018, and head coach Ed Weaver has every reason to believe that the Cougars are headed back there in 2019. With a mix of returning veterans, plus an influx of promising newcomers, Weaver said this season’s team has the depth to challenge the top teams in the league. “My goal is to win the conference, and qualify as a team for state,” Weaver said. “I’ve got two returning qualifiers, and we’ve got good representat...
