Women’s golf has now officially been added to the list of sports offered here at S.U. Men’s golf coach, Scott Singhass, will coach the women’s golf team. His lone player for the upcoming season is freshman, Sara Eadie.
“Being the first official member of the team is a great feeling,” Eadie said. “It is an honor to be able to help get the program rolling. I have only been playing for a year so to be given this chance to play at a higher level is a great experience, and I can not wait to see what the season holds.”
Eadie practices five days a week, hitting at the range to practice with all her clubs before going to the course for nine holes to work on course management and to mentally prepare herself for the season. The season starts with the ODAC preview at Rock Barn Golf Course on Sept. 21.
“Preparing for the season also means preparing mentally because if I can’t focus while I’m on the course then there’s no point of being there,” Eadie said. “My expectations for the team are pretty high this year. I have a feeling girls are going to see that there is a great opportunity to play golf and represent SU, so they will want to join as well. Even though this is the first year of the team and I am the only member, I expect to go far in tournaments and show girls that it is fun and a lot of hard work.”
Coach Singhass is currently looking for more members for the women’s golf team. He has started recruiting for next year but is also looking for girls on campus this year that would be interested in playing this season and for years to come.
“I think that the women’s golf team is a great thing for SU. It expands the sports teams here, and it allows girls to show guys that they are just as good, if not better. I cannot wait to see what happens during the season and I hope that anyone interested joins, so that the team can continue to grow and improve,” Eadie said.
