Girls Golf Picks up the Pace

April 21, 2008 by ·  

The girls’ golfers are swinging into stride.

By Scott Bruskin

    The Lady Spartans had a good showing, placing fourth in their match on Tuesday, April 15. The team was led by senior Emily McBride, who shot a 60 through 9 holes.  Also shooting a 60 was junior Hall Hupperts. Sophomore Talya Farnsworth shot a 63. The fourth and final golfer, freshman Nicole Blake, shot a 67. Each one of these golfers shot their career best and are starting to get a hold of things. “We all shot very well and we thought the day was a success. Everyone walked off the course feeling like they did something good,” Farnsworth said. “I personally feel that the whole team has improved by leaps and bounds.”

    Coach Mark Smith is enjoying the season and is looking forward to Regional tournament as well as the City Cup. “We are building up to Regionals, and we would like to make a good showing at the City Cup.” The City Cup will all but determine the winner of the Denver Prep League.

    However, there is one more match before the City Cup (which will be next Thursday.) The girls will play on Tuesday, April 22 at City Park Golf Course. The tee time is scheduled for 2:00. Look for the golfers to keep shooting well and post good scores from here on out.

Girls Golf Takes Third

    The girls golf team played a great match Wednesday, April 9 and finished in third place behind St. Mary’s and East. Only three of the girls were able to finish the 9 holes, but the golfers who did finish the course shot well. Lone senior Emily McBride shot a 61 and Junior Hall Hupperts shot a 70. Not far behind Hupperts was Nicole Blake who finished the day with a 71. Coach Mark Smith can see the girls improve each and every time they hit the course. “Great progress is being made as each week goes by,” Smith commented.

     The girls are starting to gain momentum, and have been learning the game especially well. The golfers are now becoming competitive with their other DPS foes. The best part about this year’s team is that (outside of McBride,) they are very young, and should be competitive from here on out. Junior, Hupperts and freshman, Blake have really had some success on the course so far this season.

    The girls’ look to have another strong finish on Tuesday, April 15 when they play another match. Tee time will be at 1:00 at Kennedy Golf Course.

Girls’ Golf Gears up

The TJ girls’ golfers prepare to swing into a new season.

By Scott Bruskin

    The Girls golf’ team is back in action and ready to play, led by a team full of new and young faces. The team has no returning players from last year. Usually this means that they are due for a let down, but according to Head Coach Mark Smith, that is not the case. “This year the girls are more competitive and just seem to have that fiery edge that it takes to succeed in anything,” Smith said. However, the one thing Smith desires to teach the girls is an appreciation for the game. “I hope to instill my passion and integrity for the game into them.”    

    The girls started the season off a little slow, struggling in their first nine holes. The Spartans were lead by freshman Nicole Brown who shot a 69.  Following Brown was Chanel Beerumen who ended up with a 71 through nine. The girls’ team still has room for improvement as the season has barely gotten underway. Their next meet will be on March 17 at the DPS Spring Classic.

    Now that the season is underway, Smith sees potential in the golfers. “We have the possibility to build a solid team. Through a week and a half of practice, we have made great progress.”  Read more
