Maggie Sloan isn’t used to playing with the girls.

Sloan, a sophomore at T.F. South, is forced to compete with the boys team during the season because the Rebels don’t field a girls program.

It’s worked out so far. Last season she placed 50th in state and this year she tied Sandburg’s Frankie Saban for second at the Class 2A Marist Regional with an 80.

“I love to go on the course and show these boys that I can beat you, and I will,” Sloan said.

She added that shooting from the boys tee boxes during the season helps when she makes the switch to the girls game. She also pointed out some differences in course behavior.

“Girls are a lot less temperamental,” Sloan said. “Girls are a little more calm, a lot more talkative. The boys are more go with the flow, chill.”

Sloan plays Monday at Coyote Run for a shot at another state berth.
