After completing four tournaments in the fall season, the varsity golf team has its personal best team score of 20. Junior Simone Campise medaled in four top 10 finishes in the fall season. The team strives to do its best in the upcoming spring season.

“UIL allows us to play eight tournaments per school year,’’ head coach Julie Lowry said. “Typically, we play four in the fall and four in the spring.”

As the team prepares for the spring tournaments, players practice daily while preparing for the competition ahead.

“I go to my swing coach every Monday and Saturday for two hours [and my] putting coach once a month for one hour, but on a daily basis I practice two hours every day,’’ junior Simone Campise said.

Under the new coaching staff, players have experienced a new sense of direction and guidance. Both Lowry and assistant coach Mercedes Trent bring new ideas and coaching styles the team hopes will take them far this season.

“Both of the coaches are very chill and fun, they help me with my techniques,’’ senior Jacob Bixby said. “They do a very good job of teaching and helping us get better by pushing us to do our best.’’

The coaches have set high goals for the team by believing in their players’ contribution to the overall success of the team.

“We will be organized and disciplined and hopefully competitive, and we will also have fun while doing it,” Lowry said. “I want to build positive relationships with the kids built on trust and support.’’  

Even with the new season ahead, players stay focused and continue to practice more rigorously than last season.

“I got into golf because I heard a lot of scholarships would go unfulfilled for women because not many girls played,” Campise said. “I saw it as an opportunity to do something different.”

Despite how the season turns out, Lowry maintains both short and long-term goals.

“[We need] to build the golf team in numbers and be competitive in a tough district,” Lowry said. “[We need] to have consistent practice and develop a well-rounded program. We are here for them and will support them as long as they are doing their part.”
