WHS Girls Golf 2017

Some sports history this Fall at WHS - a GIRLS GOLF TEAM! With the popularity of golf for both boys and girls at the middle school level and the introduction of their golf program 3 years ago or so, the high school team was started this year with 5 members (4 freshmen and 1 sophomore) with more "Lady Knight Golfers" in the pipeline. Exciting stuff! GO BIG RED!

Meet your 2017 WHS Girls Golf Team!

First Outdoor Practice
WHS Lady Crusader SPORTS HISTORY was made Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2017 at the Wellington Golf Club. After "2" days of watching "rules videos", etc. the first ever Girls Golf Team took to the course for their first outside OFFICIAL PRACTICE in the history of the school. Coaches James Ginter and Vanessa Sawyer took charge of the team after a welcome to the Wellington Golf Club by our very own WHS Graduate and now Director of Golf at Wellington's phenomenal course, Mr. Derek Harrison.

Practice began where tournaments are won and loss - on the putting green. Good Luck to these fine ladies and coaches - you are PIONEERS for sure!!
