Dooley: Above and Beyond the Rest

All sports have difficulties at one point or another. Golf is no exception.

Senior Hannah Dooley is the No.1 golfer for the Varsity girls golf team and she has plenty of advice for her fellow golfers.

“Have patience, good things take time,” said Dooley.

Sports take patience, dedication and time. Dooley does not fall short in putting in the time. She constantly practices, whether it is indoors or outdoors. She takes lessons and realizes that it will not always be easy.

Most golf meets consist of three to four teams. The Varsity girls get the opportunity to play with different teams like Jasper and Corydon.

Springs Valley is her favorite to compete against. Dooley really enjoys playing with the Springs Valley team because they are friendly and fun.

Dooley’s goals for this season included beating her previous scores and making it out of Sectional, which is her favorite part of the season. With nine meets all season, there is not a lot of time for mistakes. During the season Dooley hoped to make a statement to college coaches.

“I would like to play college golf at Bellarmine,” said Dooley.

In golf, every shot is different and each player has his or her favorite and, of course, his or her least favorite shot. Hitting her driver is Dooley’s most favored shot. The area that she feels needs the most help would be her putting.

Sectionals for the Varsity girls were held at Otis Park in Bedford. Although the team did not make it out, Dooley shot an 88 and made it to Regional as an individual.

Regional was held at the Country Oaks golf course in Montgomery. Dooley shot a 90 but didn’t move on to State, though she still had fun.

“I tried my best, and that’s all that matters,’’ said Dooley.
