Big Red Sports Network Reporter Etta Schar ‘23 recently met up with girls' varsity golfers Angel Zhang ‘22 and Kiley Alt ‘23 to find out what the team co-captains expect to see from their squad this year.
Etta Schar: When did you start playing golf?
Kiley Alt: At eight years old.
Angel Zhang: Around eight or nine.
ES: How long have you played golf for Lawrenceville?
KA: Two years; would have been three if not for COVID.
AZ: This is my second year
ES: How does it feel to be competing again after COVID?
KA: It feels weird to be interacting with people from other schools, without masks; during COVID, we weren’t meeting new people, but now that it is “over,” it feels unnatural to meet someone new
AZ: It doesn’t really feel that different, but I’ve definitely come to enjoy playing a lot more.
ES: What do you enjoy most about golfing at Lawrenceville?
KA: Becoming friends with new people, from different Houses and different Forms
AZ: I definitely enjoy getting to know the girls on the team.
ES: What does it mean to you to be a team captain? What do you feel your role is/responsibilities are as team captain?
KA: For me, the most important thing is to support the team; rooting for them on their good days and encouraging them on their bad days.
AZ: I think that the most important part about being captain is to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves on the course and has fun playing.
ES: Any personal or team goals for the season?
KA: For everyone to improve their own game, at their own pace
AZ: Try to consistently shoot in the high 30s and low-40s for nine holes.
