From the Sideline

“Although just a sophomore, Erika leads by example always following instructions for whatever practice is set up for the team to do. She comes to practice with a smile on her face. She is kind to the other competitors and I have never seen her lose her temper on the golf course, despite a frustrating shot or hole. She is very even keel and that sets a good example for our other players as she has the lowest stroke average on the team. She treats everyone on the team, be it varsity or JV, the same. She also has a 3.9 GPA and competed at state in both golf and tennis (third in singles) last year.
