October 23, 2013: Rachael Stous was awarded the Wendy's female athlete of the week award. Below is the link to her interview.http://www.wibwnewsnow.com/wendys-high-school-athletes-week-102213/October 22, 2013: First off Samantha Erickson shot 112 yesterday. It was not her best score of the year but also not her worst. I am extremely proud of Samantha. She was only a two year golfer for me and managed to qualify for the state tournament both years. That is something to be very proud of. She is a great young lady and am very thankful I had the opportunity to coach her.
Second is Rachel Stous. Rachel had probably one of the best years in THS history for women's golf. She played in 10 golf meets and medaled in all 10. She won 2 tournaments this year the SH Inv. and the Manhattan Inv. and was the 3rd at city and 7th at the Lawrence Inv. which is one of the best meets in the state. Rachel shot an 81 at state yesterday claiming the 4th place medal. She had to go to a playoff with WR's #1 Haley Flory to get that medal. They ended up going 4 holes of sudden death to see who would come in 4th. Rachel birdied the 4th hole to claim 4th. This was a huge step for Rachel as she has not beat Haley very many times. I am really proud of the progress she made this season. She has started to mature and really care about winning every tournament she plays in. She is not the kind of kid to come up to you and say guess what I did yesterday so if you see her congratulate her and make her talk to you. I have a feeling she needs to practice giving interviews as she probably will be giving some in her next two seasons. -- Coach Nelson
