Hamilton senior Taylor Johnson finished off her career as a Hawkeye golfer by competing at the golf state finals, Saturday, Oct. 20.

She said it was a fun time, and she’ll never forget it.

“I did the best that I could,” Johnson said. “I tried and I had fun.”

Johnson has been golfing since she was a freshman in high school, but this was her first trip to the individual state finals.

Coach Kevin Arnold has been coaching girls varsity golf before Johnson was a freshman.

“(I was) thrilled that Taylor made it to state, but disappointed that (I) had to miss it,” he said.

“I think it meant the world to her,” Coach Arnold said, adding “she deserves her success.”

“I think it’s a cool experience and I would like it if my teammates could get the same experience,” Johnson said.

“I played for four years, and I would like to play for college if I can,” said Johnson. “I was happy because not many people get to go.”

Johnson is not the only one who looks forward to her career continuing into college.

“I want her to have fun playing the game long in the future,” Coach Arnold said. “Hopefully she can play some college golf.”

While Johnson wished to have scored better, she enjoyed the experience, and wishes the best for her teammates in the future.
