[ Girls golf preview: Wheeler forms team around cross country star Hailey Orosz, soccer standout Elena Giorgi ]
Wheeler soccer standout Elena Giorgi, left, and cross country star Hailey Orosz will be pretty busy this fall. In addition to their main sports, the seniors will also represent the Bearcats in golf.
But with her senior year approaching at Wheeler, the star cross country and track runner decided to pick up a new sport and surprised Bearcats girls golf coach Mike Lyons in the process.
“When I first told him I wanted to do golf, he kind of just laughed a little bit,” Orosz said. “I think his reaction was like, ‘Yeah, that’s not possible. We don’t even have a team.'”
Lyons, a biology teacher at Wheeler, has coached girls golf on and off at the school since 2002, and every year he isn’t sure if enough girls will come out for the program. Last season, the Bearcats went without a girls golf team, and that appeared to be the case this year, too.
