Golf team swings into the spotlight


Coach Ward, Meiyi Wu ‘23, Rhyan Nunn ‘ 21, Lola Gutierrez ‘21 and SENIORS Mara Doyle and Kate Greater celebrate after a strong performance.

It was a long and hard season for the golf team. The boys finished the season with only one win in 15 matches. The girls finished with three wins in 15 matches. However, Meiyi Wu, ‘23, won the Eastern Cincinnati Conference (ECC) match and made a successful postseason run for WHHS as an individual.

Even though Wu is a freshman, and one of the youngest golfers on the team she doesn’t let “the pressure of being a freshman doesn’t get to [her]” Wu said. This fact showed throughout the whole season as Wu emerged as the best golfer on the team.

At the ECC, Wu finished in first place with a score of 84, which was good enough for her to win the conference as an individual.

“I was very excited and happy that I improved since the pre-ECC matches,” Wu said after finding out that she had won the conference.

Wu has been golfing since she was four years old and from a young age, she fell in love with the sport. She golfed all throughout her childhood into high school.

At the young age of 14, Wu doesn’t plan to stop golfing anytime soon. “[Golf] is fun and I plan to be a pro golfer. You can’t really do that unless you practice, so I plan to golf all throughout high school and into college as well,” Wu said.
