COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland women’s golf team hosted 39 girls from the First Tee of Greater Washington on Sunday at the University of Maryland Golf Course.
The First Tee of Greater Washington introduces the game of golf and its inherent values to young people.
“We were honored to host the First Tee at the University of Maryland Golf Course,” head coach Diana Cantu said. “We had 39 awesome young ladies who love the game of golf and were eager to learn more and have a great time. The team treasures these types of opportunities when we can give back to the community, and especially the game of golf, which has given so much to us.
“We've all had great adventures and made lifelong friends through golf. We appreciate the opportunity to share our knowledge and passion for the sport and we look forward to making this an annual event."
“The event was fantastic,” senior Alexandra Papell said. “Being a student-athlete is a huge privilege and being able to come together with such a young group of girls is important because they need to know that anything is possible. It's our job as student-athletes who come from all over the world to show them that they can be part of a community that's focused around the sport we all love.”
