DP: How would you describe this season?

BP: "This season was really rough considering the weather. We had a lot of indoor practices, but it was a lot of fun ... We won regionals. I don't think Bowman's ever done that for girls golf at all and we got second at state and that was really good. It was a rough start because we never got to practice outside because of the weather, but I was really happy we were able to wrap it up and finish strong."

DP: How long have you been golfing and what do you most enjoy about it?

BP: "I've been golfing since the summer before my fourth-grade year and I most enjoy how you can either do it with a bunch of people, or I can do it by myself. Either way, it's really relaxing."

DP: What is your earliest sports memory?

BP: "My earliest sports memory would be of golf, actually. One of the high school girls gave me and my younger sister lessons. Bailey is (my younger sister's) name, and she beat me all the time and I hated golf. So, not a very good memory."
