Trinity High School’s girls’ golf team members, left to right, Natalie Ewbank, Madison Miller, Autumn Sitler, Giana Sasselli, and Avery O’Sullivan, are close knit and enjoy playing in matches together, regardless of grades or skill levels.

This year, the first ever girls golf team has made Trinity High School sports history. This new team is comprised of nine girls, and they have already completed their inaugural season. The team included seven seniors, Natalie Ewbank, Finley Hohn, Madison Miller, Avery O’Sullivan, Addison Paul, Giana Sasselli and Emily Winters.

The creation of the girls’ golf team was well received, as many girls wanted a chance to play. Senior Finley Hohn had previously been a member of the boys’ golf team during her freshman and sophomore years. That experience made her appreciate the formation of the new team even more.

“When I was on the boys’ team, I was always a straggler. Being on an all girls team gave me an opportunity to excel and give other girls the support and advice I never got,” Hohn says.

Freshman Saylor Kitsko was also excited to join the team, as she believes it is important to show other girls that they can do anything boys can do, especially when it comes to sports like golf.

Hohn and Kitsco have both developed a serious interest in golf and thoroughly enjoy the sport. Both girls would also like to golf for the rest of their lives.

Head Coach Anthony Poletti is proud to be coaching this new team because he loves getting the chance to be around golf and having the opportunity to help grow the sport. He is grateful for everyone who joined the team this year.

“This was our first season and I am forever grateful for the ladies who came out and set the foundation for our program going forward. I am so proud of their progress and ability to stick with it,” Poletti says.

Anyone interested in golf is encouraged to try out for the team next year. Next season, the girls’ golf team will have the ability to qualify for WPIALS and they are always looking for new talent. Interested parties are encouraged to bring a carefree attitude, a strong work ethic and the ability to laugh at themselves.

During the regular season, the girls practice around once a week and compete in matches one to two times a week. Matches and practices are held at the 84 Driving Center where Trinity competes against schools like Peter’s Township, Mount Lebanon, Beaver County and Belle Vernon.

Don’t forget to come out and support the girls’ golf team next season.
