As a Mariemont senior who is playing a sport in college, I have to balance senior research paper, Mr. Wollford, and athletic preparations. I had to make one difficult decision already based on next year, and I am happy with my choice.
I play tennis and had to choose between spending loads of time preparing for golf, or play on the tennis team with only a little practice time. I chose to play tennis with my friends and enjoy my last quarter of high school instead of discouraging myself on the driving range all spring.
In addition to tennis, I have many gold tournaments on the weekends. I got my new clubs a few days ago, and am currently getting used to the feel of the switch. I am also going to florida for spring break, where I will celebrate the completion of my senior research paper. I will also practice golf everyday and play in a two-day tournament.
I have golf workouts four days a week. They are difficult but rewarding because I feel so much better after a week of good workouts.
Golf is a unique college sport in that it is the only one that has official tournaments in two seasons. This means I only get the winter off, and must be on the top of my game in both the spring and fall.
I can’t wait to join DePauw’s team and can’t wait to see what I can accomplish.
