Girls golf team taking players

DOWNEY - The Warren High School girls' golf team is actively looking for players to compete in the fall.The girls' golf season starts right as school gets underway in September. Coach Tina Schmid, the Warren High School head coach for boys and girls golf, is looking for girls interested in playing golf to come to Rio Hondo Golf Course on Mondays at 2 p.m. Coach Schmid maintains that no experience is necessary but that potential golfers need to have a genuine desire to learn the game. According to Schmid, some softball players have had a good amount of success playing but she would like to see as many girls as possible come out and give "swinging the sticks" a shot. Owning golf clubs is not a requirement but interested girls need to contact Coach Schmid for appropriate options. Coach Schmid needs girls interested to be able to practice twice a week over the summer and Monday through Thursdays after school in the fall. Coach Schmid maintains that "golf is an exciting, fun and humbling sport." Playing golf in high school "provides a young person with an opportunity to meet fellow students with similar interests, engage in a competitive sport, earn a varsity letter, and quite possibly, earn a scholarship if your skill level is good enough." Coach Schmid says that there are scholarships available for golfers who work hard at the sport, while at the same time, taking care of their academic requirements also. Interested student-athletes should direct their questions to Coach Tina Schmid at
