Making History


By: W&L Women’s Golf

The Generals host their first-ever home event this Monday-Tuesday.

The 2012-13 school year marks the very first varsity season for women’s golf at Washington and Lee and several members of the squad have offered their thoughts and impressions about being on the first team and about their experience thus far.  The team will host its first-ever home event on Monday and Tuesday at the Lexington Golf & Country Club.  If you are in the area, come on out and support the ladies as they make history.

There are certain opportunities that present themselves that you can’t turn down; the first women’s golf team at W&L is one of them.  We are the 24th varsity sports team on campus.  You have to take the opportunity to be a part of history and that’s what this team is to me — the chance to make history.  Starting something new, being a first, leaving your mark.  It’s not just getting involved with the school, it’s being a part of something bigger.  Giving back and putting your energy into something that can grow.

Being on the inaugural women’s golf team is more than just being a part of a regular sports team on campus.  Not only is it completely new to us, but new to the entire Washington and Lee community.  Even though we are not as well known as the other teams on campus (especially since it’s not really common for students to go watch a golf match), it is up to us to establish our presence on this campus and I could not be more elated than to be in that position.  It is up to us to build our reputation, both as individuals and as a team, and it is up to us to make history.

It is an honor to be a member of the inaugural women’s varsity golf team and the 24th sport at Washington and Lee.  I’m enjoying playing the game that I love with four great girls and I’m looking forward to the coming years as we improve each season.  Coach Pete and Coach Bowden are great coaches who are going to help each of us improve our game.

The past couple of weeks on the W&L women’s golf team have been such a great experience.  I have really enjoyed getting to know the girls, and we all get along very well.  I am so happy that I decided to participate on the golf team because it has allowed me to continue doing something that I loved in high school.  So far, my experience on the team has been awesome, and I know that as the year goes on, it will just keep getting better.
