Lane leaves RHS girls’ golf with big shoes to fill

| October 13, 2012

WEST LAFAYETTE – Paige Lane has left the Ridgewood High School Girls’ Golf Team with big shoes to fill.

The senior has been with the team since it started three years ago and has the honor of being the only girl to make it to the district golf tournament.

“Last year I did what I wanted to and made it to districts,” she said. “This year I expected to make it. I also had hoped to go to state, but I ended up tying for eighth.”

The team has not had a winning season, but as an individual, Lane has been very successful.

“I’m the number one girl, but it’s because I put a lot of time into it,” she said. “I believe we have at least one other girl on the team who has the drive to make it to state and attempt to beat my goals.”

Lane plans on continuing her golfing career at Waynesburg University in Pennsylvania.

“In my search I wanted a D III school so I would be guaranteed a spot on the golf team and Waynesburg had that,” she said. “When I walked on the campus I also felt right at home. I knew I was going to fit in and be fine. I’m ready to spread my wings and head to Pennsylvania.”

Lane is ready to move on, but she plans to take with her many memories from her golfing days at Ridgewood.

“I got to meet a lot of people from other teams because with golf you actually get to interact with the people you are playing against,” she said. “I also enjoyed really getting to know my coach (Craig ReVeil) and teach the team the etiquette of the game. We also had our nice share of laughs.”

Lane also wishes next year’s team nothing but good luck and had a few words of wisdom for them.

“You have to put work into golf to get to where I’ve been,” she said. “Set your goals high and work to achieve them.”
