The Pride is showing potential for success, though.
With a strong senior, Aly Mossinghof, and other players greatly improving, the team is on the right path. As Mr. Hunt, coach, said, “We will get one, hopefully three, to the state’s [NCHSAA State Championship Tournament] this year.”
Although golf is an individual sport, the six girls are really coming together as a team. Whitley Lewis, senior, said, “Even though we all have our own strengths and weakness, we work together as a team to get better.”
Hunt agrees. “The camaraderie and sportsmanship on this team is really great. Everyone gets along really well.”
Golf is very challenging for its participants. Mossinghof said, “The game of golf is mentally challenging. Sometimes you got it [golf], but sometimes it is extremely difficult to play. It’s a hard sport to capture.”
This year will be interesting for the Leesville team. Hunt said, “We are figuring out who we are and what we are doing. We’ve lost a lot of good seniors the past few years, so we are rebuilding and teaching the less experienced.”
The women’s team has a long season ahead of them. One that is hopefully filled with success.
