Girls golf team swings for greatness as the season starts up


Senior KJ Toole follows through her swing at the 2020 State Championship Match.

     The wind was blowing and the putting green was cut perfectly. It was a bright and sunny day, which brought out the green in the grass. As golf season is starting up, many of the golfers are excited. 

     The girls’ golf team has already had some tournaments and matches that have them getting off on the right foot. 

     In the latest tournament, St. Elizabeth Invitational hosted by Highlands, the team finished 8th overall shooting a 95 over par for a total of 379 on an 18 hole course at Pioneer Country Club.

     Senior KJ Toole finished in 10th place as an individual with a score of six-over-par for a total of 77 on an 18 hole course for that match. 

     Sophomore Lily Muller talked about how she prepared for the season this summer.

     “I prepared by playing up at the county club and practicing chipping and putting mostly. I practiced by driving at the Four Seasons Golf Range.”

     The team practices at least two times a week at Highland Country Club or World of Golf.

     One of the huge matches that the girls have is Senior Night on September 13 against Notre Dame Academy. 

     Toole commented on how she thinks the season will go. 

     “I’m hoping that overall season will be a productive one. I would like to make it to the state tournament.” 

     The girls have tournaments or matches almost every weekend with very tough competition. 

     The next match is tonight September 7 against Simon Kenton at Pioneer Country Club.
