The Enid High School Golf teams are in full “swing” this spring, both teams have placed in various tournaments this season. Baylee Wood a Junior, and Max Fossett a Sophomore, are both leaders in our programs. “Baylee and Max are extremely hard working and they both strive to improve their game,” said David Lee, Enid High Golf Coach.
After a season off due to COVID last spring, Max and Baylee are both more aware of their opportunity and are focused on the team. Baylee says that “I have learned that when we help each other practice we can do the best we can as a team at our tournaments.” As for Max, he is “learning that teamwork plays a huge part in the success of the program.” Both are trying to help lead their teams in as many ways as possible.
Coach Lee says that “Max is the leader of the boy’s golf team and is dedicated to improving the team.” Max plans to go to college and pursue a degree in the field of medicine and thinks that having been an athlete “has made me a better person and taught me how to work harder to go get what I want.”
Baylee adds that “due to the pandemic we lost a lot of our practice time, and that being an athlete helped me learn how to better balance my time between work, school and golf.” Baylee plans to attend college and study medicine, the skills she has acquired through being a part of the golf team will certainly help her achieve this goal.
Both Baylee and Max offer similar advice to upcoming athletes, Max says “never settle for less and keep pushing.” Baylee’s advice to upcoming athletes is to “do your best and don’t let negativity stand in your way.” Both pieces of advice are great reminders that when faced with adversity it allows us to achieve more.
Both Baylee and Max are great examples of how hard work and dedication to something bigger than themselves can lead to positive outcomes. We wish them good luck with the rest of their season and look forward to seeing them and the golf program continue to grow.
