The Quinnipiac women's golf team won the Quinnipiac Classic with an inspirational, come from behind victory, here at The Farms Country Club on October twenty-third.
I invited team captain, Kayla Ketcheson, to write a guest blog entry for me. So here you go:It’s been said, “it’s not how you start, but how you finish”; and I could not think of a more appropriate phrase to describe the Quinnipiac women’s golf team’s fall season. The 2012-2013 roster has added five new girls that make a team filled with talent, focus, and moreover laughter and positivity. Over the previous two and a half months, the girls have formed a sisterhood that has supported each other through seven playing events. Having the last day of playing competition at the Farms seemed only fitting. The Farms was responsible for helping put on an extremely successful and well-received Quinnipiac Classic. We could not have asked for better course conditions or weather to finish our fall season.
Going into the second round shortly behind first place, we had not an ounce of fear or worry—but excitement. In the weeks leading up to the tournament, our coaching staff and Paul had given us years of course knowledge. Confident, we made up the necessary strokes on the second day using our course management and knowledge of the greens. No words can adequately describe the satisfaction we felt with our play, as we knew we had won without seeing the numbers tallied. The moment was monumental for the program and for the entire team. I am extremely enthusiastic about following the Quinnipiac women’s golf team even after I graduate this May, as they continue to set the bar higher each year.
