On the eve of the 2016 Girls State Golf Tournament, a member of the Emmetsburg Lady E-Hawk golf team might just have set the tone for the two days of play.

Senior Katie Hoffman and her teammates were playing a practice round Monday afternoon at the Jester Park Golf Course outside of Granger. The Class 2A State Tournament will play over the course on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

As Hoffman and senior teammates Laura Moser and Benni Greene teed off on the 120-yard eighth hole, Hoffman tallied a hole in one, using a 3 wood.

The trio walked on the green and Hoffman discovered her tee shot in the cup, pictured at left. Both Moser and Greene witnessed the shot, which was Hoffman’s first-ever hole-in-one.

Other members of the team are Allison Freeman, Sara Pugh and Parker Traub.
