A new era of golf is here

This year for the first time in Virginia Wesleyan College history, a women’s golf team will be hitting the links. The team is comprised right now of two golfers, Hannah Turner and Maggie Kingora. Hannah Turner, a sophomore from Brookhaven, Pennsylvania was one of the driving forces to get the women’s golf team made at Virginia Wesleyan.  “It feels honoring.  This is a brand new program that I helped start and that’s all I’ve wanted for a year now,” Turner said. Maggie Kingora a true freshman from Sterling, Virginia said she feels humbled being one of the two golfers that are on this inaugural team.  “It is an honor to be one of the first women to be on the women’s golf team to represent Virginia Wesleyan,” said Kingora “I can’t wait to see where our team grow.”

These two girls are going to set the bar for the teams to come after them and they both seem confident they can do so. Kingora posted the best score between the two in tournament play posting an 81 at the Bridgewater invitational.  In their most recent matches, the pair finished shooting 89. “We are just warming up. I know personally that my scores are going to go down, and so are Maggie’s. We are just breaking the tip of the iceberg,” said Turner about herself and her teammates performance. Look out for these two, good things seem to be on there mind.
