Sunraysia Academy of Sport golf athlete, Sophie Crouch has been selected in the Junior State Squad for Golf Victoria.
Golf Victoria has recently announced the U16 Junior State Squad for 2014/15. The squad was selected based on results in local, state and national tournaments. Seven boys and seven girls from across country and metropolitan Victoria were selected in the squad. Athletes will have the opportunity to attend squad sessions in July, September, November and March with access to Golf Victoriaâ€™s High Performance coaches.
Jo Charlton, Junior Golf Coordinator for Golf Victoria, said that the task of selecting this squad was extremely difficult given the large number of talented junior golfers in Victoria.
The Sunraysia Academy of Sport are extremely pleased with Sophieâ€™s selection. Sophie is now in her 3rd year of the SAS golf program and recently attended a camp at Moonah Links with golfers from all the other Victorian Regional Academies. The camp was an opportunity to be coached and analysed by the best Golf coaches in Victoria. I understand Sophieâ€™s development impressed a number of coaches at this camp and am sure this was taken into consideration when selecting the state junior squad.
Sophie is one of Sunraysiaâ€™s most promising junior golfers at present and is a role model for many youngÂ golfers in the region.
