Lady Owls Golf

Practice makes perfect. The amazing Lady Owls golf team has excellent and encouraging players who love to golf. Golf takes a lot of time, patience, and practice. 

The Lady Owls golf team is made up of 5 players: 3 juniors and 2 freshmen.

Lainey Jackson plays the number one spot for the Lady Owls and has been playing since 6th grade.

¨This season started out as a struggle, but it is turning out to be one of my best seasons. At Hoosier Hills Conference I scored 87 which was my best at the time, then I went to sectionals and shot 84. We are going to regionals Saturday and I am excited to play at that course.¨ – Lainey Jackson

Playing since 7th grade, Phoebe Skidmore competes in the number two spot.

¨I’ve been playing for four years. Our last match was sectionals, and it went fairly well since we advanced to regionals this Saturday!¨-Phoebe Skidmore

Liza Stuckwisch has been playing since her freshman year.

¨I have been golfing since freshman year, and I have really enjoyed my experience on the team. My favorite part of the season is having fun with my teammates. I am planning to improve my overall game during the off-season. I am really proud of our team and the improvement we have made.¨ -Liza Stuckwisch

Katie Cottrill plays the number four spot and has been playing since 6th grade.

¨I have been golfing for about three years. I really enjoyed getting closer with my team and growing as a player. The team bonding was fun, too. I swim in the winter, so I will be catching back up during next spring.¨ -Katie Cottrill

Emily Windley is new to the game of golf. During her first and only season, she has rapidly improved her skills during each practice and match.  

This season the Lady Owls have improved and set their personal best records.

The Lady Owls finished 13 out of 18 teams at the Washington Girls Golf Regional. While no golfers advanced to State this weekend, Seymour did shoot 30 fewer strokes than Brownstown, who had beaten the ladies by four strokes at the Bedford Sectional. 

This month I went out to the golf course with Katie Cottrill and observed the Lady Owls golf practice. I got to ask many questions and even learn the basics of golf. I’m very excited and interested about joining the team next year.

Are you interested in joining the team?
