The Girls’ Golf Team Tees Off

Co-captain Christie Cantor ’14 tees off during one of the team’s practices

The Girls’ Golf Team Tees Off

The girls’ golf team is in full swing. With training at least four times a week and additional individual practice on top of that, Erica Stein ’13, one of the captains of the team, believes they will have a successful season.

“My hopes for this season are to once again qualify for FCIACS and States,” she said. “But not just to qualify, but this time to go all the way and hopefully take the title in both.”

In 2012 the team placed second in the FCIAC, but Stein said that two new key players, Anelise Brown ’16 and Faith Garcia ’14, will play very important roles this season.

“The golf team kind of got off to a late start because of the bad weather, but the whole team was super nice and welcoming,” Brown said.

Brown, who has been playing golf for three and half years, said that while she is having fun on the team, she hopes to help bring the team to see an FCIAC title.

Garcia, who has been playing for seven years, agreed.

“We are like family and we all get along so well,” she said. “It’s a great experience to meet with people who are different ages and love the things you love to do.”

The team’s first match is on April 9 at Longshore against Fairfield Ludlowe and Darien.

About the Contributor
Hannah Foley
Hannah Foley, Editor-in-Chief

Hannah Foley ’14 has many talents, but when combined together, she is unstoppable. As a major contributor to Inklings newspaper as Editor-in-Chief, WWPT radio, Staples’ award winning radio show, and Good Morning Staples, she is truly a triple threat. Each alone are impressive enough, but Foley is able to manage them all together.

It all started with journalism as a freshman, when her class joined forces with the television production class. She immediately began hosting at Good Morning Staples, where she can still be seen to this day. She later found herself as a part of the news department for WWPT, and the rest is history.

Foley has continued to impress, winning a John Drury Radio Award for second in the nation for a feature news story she wrote and read on WWPT.

Although each is unique, Foley feels that her participation in the individual organizations benefits the others. “Since they all have a base in journalism, they all require that you master different skills and those skills can be applied across the board,” explains Foley.

One of Foley’s proudest articles written for Inklings is a column  about her experience living in Brooklyn during the 9/11 attack.

But the thing that introduced it all to her still holds a special place in her heart.

“I love layout, I love eating food at layout, and I love the moments that happen at layout,” Foley says. “When I look back at high school, I’m not going to remember that test I took. I’m going to remember sitting at the table with my staff eating Roly Poly’s, laughing while Ms. McNamee and Mr. Rexford make jokes.”
