Golf team takes home silver, gains camaraderie


Towards the end of October, the weather is dreary, dark and rainy. Regardless, the golf team plays 18 holes in an effort to be named best in the county. Last Monday, the golf team’s hard work in slippery weather paid off when they took home a 2nd place team title and a 1st place individual title. 

The course was located in Pearland, a new territory for team members. However, they did not let the visitor’s disadvantage ruin morale. 

“It was our first time on the course, so we kind of went into the tournament blind,” junior Abigail Johnson said. “I was really nervous while playing, but I’m proud that even though I was new to the area and the weather was rough-I placed first.”

The team used the two hours of transportation as an opportunity to get to know each other. This ultimately allowed for a more supportive environment for the future.

“The tournament was really great because all of the top ten girls got to get closer with each other on the bus ride there and back,” sophomore Laurell Hall said. “We all worked hard because the course was new for us. In the end, we got to the clubhouse to see everybody’s scores and we were all very supportive of each other.”

Even though the team did not place first, members still appreciate feelings of improvement and friendship.

“We played amazingly and gave the other teams a run for their money,” junior Katie Christner said. “I cannot wait to keep improving as the year goes on and I am super glad I got to take home the silver medal with such a great team.”
