There hasn’t always been a women’s golf team, and the team has never been as big as it is this year.
“When I was a Freshman,” said senior Emma Flick, “there was no girl’s golf team.”
Now, there’s a JV team and a Varsity team at WGHS, and the team has grown from three people when it first started to 14 people now. Seven people are currently on Varsity.
“There’s a lot more freshmen this year,” said Junior Jordan Thompson.
A few of the golfers have been interested in the sport their whole lives.
“My dad played golf like his whole life. I started when I was like three,” sophomore Alex Zrenner said.
Playing golf offers some benefits.
“People play golf because there’s a lot of scholarships are open [to them],” said Thompson.
Thompson added there aren’t many women’s sports scholarships available, and that few other schools have offered this program until lately.
