Representing the girl’s team is junior women’s provincial champion Autumn Neiszner (Regina), Ella Kozak (Yorkton), Sarah Grieve (Saskatoon), and Symone Ripley (Saskatoon).

Golf Saskatchewan director of sport development Steve Ryde  said he’s excited for the event and the players making up the team.

“These kids have worked extremely hard to be named to this team,” he said. “The players that made the teams are in for a great experience both golf wise and life, we know they will represent Golf Saskatchewan to the best of their ability.”

Play begins on Friday, Aug. 16. The WCSG take place every other year.
