Marlene Schulte has not been on the job long as Georgetown College women's golf coach, but she is already blazing a trail of future Tigers to help build the program she wants. Her first foundation block is a solid rock in Mason County High School standout Jordan Frodge.
The Kentucky native signed as Schulte's first commit Monday afternoon in her high school library.
As the number two golfer, Frodge has helped the Lady Royals finish eighth in the state the past two seasons. She posted her best scores under pressure at the final tournament, illustrating her calm in the fire.
"I love challenges. I've always been a person that whenever a challenge comes my way I want to take it head on and go through it," Frodge said to her hometown paper the Independent Ledger.
Georgetown College women's golf team will have new direction this spring. Tiger standout Marlene Nall Schulte takes over for Taylor Elder, who moved to Ohio when her husband accepted a new role in Campus Crusade ministries. Elder is now head women's coach at Cincinnati Christian University, but left behind a good group of golfers for Schulte in her first season at the helm.
"I'm very excited and grateful for the opportunity to take over the women's program at Georgetown College," Schulte said. "As an alumnus and former player, it is an honor to be head coach. I look forward to our team becoming a major contender in the Mid-South Conference. The players have put in the hard work through this off-season, and we are excited for the spring."
Georgetown College men's and women's golf teams were not messing around in this early home opener to the fall season. The male Tigers cruised to the Bluegrass Fall Classic championship at Cherry Blossom Golf Course outpacing the closest competition by 24 strokes and just 11 strokes over par with a 587 over two days.
The women also played well despite the heat and walking 18 holes, shooting a 675 – seven strokes off the lead for second.
Drake Stepter, sophomore transfer from Freed-Hardeman University – won the men's side with a two-day card of 140, including a four-under par day Tuesday. He shot even par to start the tournament. Patrick Oakley, 147, and Michael Brown, 149, also made the all-tournament team.
Georgetown College men's and women's golf wrapped up its 2016 spring season at the Mid-South Conference Championships in Bowling Green, Ky. Part of the three-day tournament was a banquet to honor the season and the athletes.
During the evening was an award ceremony to hand out the MSC All-Academic honors to student-athletes who maintain at least a 3.25 grade point average and are of sophomore or higher standing.
The Tiger women were represented by Haley Hart, Jordan Meade and Sydney Swingos, while Cameron Everett was the men's recipient.
Sydney Swingos started strong at the Mid-South Conference women's golf championship presented by Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac at Bowling Green Country Club.
The junior shot six over par on day one of the three-day event to hold sole control of sixth place. A much tougher day two slipped her into double-digit standings. However, she recovered to shoot better in the last round and finish with a 252, tied for 22nd.
"Sydney is a great golfer. She had a tough round and that's hard to recover from, but she let it go and refocused for a better third round," said GC women's coach Taylor Elder. "That's not an easy thing to do, especially under the schedule we played."
