Kodiaks News · Kate Griffin: Finding her Groove in Golf

If you are fortunate to view Kate G. ’20 in action on the local golf courses this summer, you will most likely be impressed with her poise, consistency, and overall modesty.  Kate is proving to be one of the premier girls’ golfers in the state of Colorado, and she has the accolades to prove it.  She has found her groove with the short game of chipping and putting, and Kate’s long game is right on par.  Shooting below 80 strokes is a personal goal for Kate in each meet, and today’s 78 at Elmwood Golf Course in Pueblo resulted in another tournament victory.  Her parents will need to invest in another trophy shelf sooner than later, and Kate’s only job is to keep doing what she does best — balance her hectic sports schedule for the summer.

This four-sport athlete helped Coronado H.S. to their first Regional title in girls’ golf this season.  CSS does not have a girls’ golf team; thus, Kate can play for another school.    She was also named to the Metro League All-Conference Team and All-State Second Team for golf.  Because of her consistent play throughout the season, Kate was named CS Metro League 5A Player of the Year, and this week the Gazette Preps placed her on the All-Star First Team which consisted of only four girls from the area.  If she stays on track, Kate will collect more hardware in the coming years and most likely continue her golf career on the collegiate level.  She is a winner in all aspects and would be an asset to any program, just like she is for Kodiak Athletics.
