On the first match of the Girls’ Golf team, sophomore Emilee Herrmann scored a hole-in-one, making a new historical record in LCHS sports history. For her brilliant achievement, she was honored with a golden trophy. When I met with her, she replied to several questions:
Q: How did you feel when you made a hole-in-one?
I was happy, excited, and surprised all at once, but I didn’t really show any emotion because I had a couple more holes to focus on. Since golf is a mental game, it’s always about the next hole or the next shot and not about the shot you just made.
Q: Did you have any specific goals for the game you had?
I had a couple goals for that game, which was our first one of the season. Some of the goals I had was to start off the season with a good score and just relax and have fun.
Q: Are there any specific ways you practice?
I practice differently for each game or day. For games, I just try to go to the driving range, and I start off hitting the clubs [that] I will be hitting off of each t-box. Then, I go putt and chip because I think it’s the most important part of the game.
Q: What are your expectations for future games?
My expectations for future games are getting a better score and making another hole-in-one. But, my final goal is to participate in the CIF finals!
She modestly added, “I wouldn’t have made it without my teammates and Coach Ballard. I am very thankful to everyone who congratulated me, and it was a great experience overall.”
