The Lady Athenians have been working hard this offseason and are excited to prove it out on the course.

Crawfordsville is not a team to be slept on with promising underclassmen and a talented senior leading the way.

“We have a very young team and the most important thing for us is to improve each and every time we go out onto the course.” Head coach Roger Tribbett said. “We have really focused on course management this season and setting up for the next shot. We feel like this will be crucial for us this season.”

Improving is just what the Athenians have done already this season. After losing three seniors this past year, the younger players have begun to step up and fill those spots.

Tribbett likes what he sees from his team in terms of their passion and drive in wanting to better themselves in practice.

“With the loss of key players from last year, I have been very impressed with our teams’ willingness to work hard and to be willing to put in the work during practice,” he said.

Senior golfer Olivia Grady has been turning heads for years now. With the help of a killer offseason and a newly found confidence, she feels like this will be her year to shine bright.  

“Olivia has some big time goals that she set for herself heading into this season.” Tribbett said. “She has been playing very well these last couple of weeks.”

Crawfordsville managed to shoot 250 while University was incomplete in their Aug. 11 meeting. Grady shot a team-low 56.

The Lady Athenians are back in action Monday when they take on Rockville and Attica in a home meet at the Milligan Park Municipal Golf Course at 5 p.m.
