My name is Lucy Stiles. I am a senior at Hudson Senior High school, co-captain of the Girls Varsity Golf Team, and I took 4th out of 55 players at the Chippewa 2014 Invitational at Lake Wissota with a final 18 hole score of 88. I grew up in a home located on Troy Burne Golf Course with my father, mother, and younger sister. I have been playing golf with my dad since I was 5. I have had professional instruction throughout my career, and feel I have a fairly technically sound golf swing. I work on my short game extensively and understand that a good short game means everything. I also am involved with STLF (Student Today, Leaders Forever), YAH (Youth Action Hudson) and I am a youth group leader at St. Francis of Assisi Perish in Stillwater MN. (STLF and YAH are community service programs within my hometown). I have always held a job that I have balanced with my sport along with going to school and other activities at Safeway Bus Company and Pier 500 Restaurant. My father graduated from the University Of Michigan as a D1 scholarship athlete (hockey-1982-1986) and I have grown up in a family that understands the importance of sports and college. My game has been a bit inconsistent recently being my season in Wisconsin in so short, but I am a self starter and understand the importance of practice. playing golf in college is a goal of mine. I have also recently named Homecoming First Princess. I work with the special needs students at the High School, and our family has a annual scholarship awarded to an outgoing senior who's interested in education with an emphasis in special Ed. At this point, I am unsure of what I want to do in college, but I am interested In education, business, and computer science. I look forward to attending a strong college, playing golf, learning, and contributing to my school, community, family, and friends.
One thing I take pride in is helping people both on and off of the field. Whether it be personal matters, school matters, or golf matters, I am always more than willing to help my teammates, friends, or classmates.
On the field I enjoy mentoring the younger girls on my team. Our team last year was mostly composed of Freshman and Sophomore girls that had never touched a golf club up until the season, which left most of the team unprepared for match play. Multiple times throughout practice I would find myself assisting the girls with their swing, rules, and etiquette on the range in preparation for match play. The girls and I got along very well which made teaching and communicating throughout the year effortless. Over the season, the girls improved tremendously and helped carry the team to sectionals.
As for off the field, my family gives a scholarship to an outgoing senior with interest in special education every year. I have taken it upon myself to involve myself in working with the students in my school through STS (Student-to-student). STS is a group of individuals that take an hour out of their day to teach the students school subjects as well as how to complete daily tasks and I absolutely love it. I mentor special needs students every afternoon in school and once a month after school with other mentors to assist in teaching the students how to carry out daily chores and necessary tasks they will need to acquire to live on their own.
Whether it be my approach to sports, or my general lifestyle, the two go hand-in-hand. I eat well, exercise regularly, and take very good care of my body and mind. During the off season, I am at the gym around 4 times a week. I actively participate in yoga for mental and physical workouts. (It's my favorite). Im an alcohol and smoke-free athlete as well.
In my community, I am involved in STLF (Students Today, Leaders Forever), STS (Student-to Student), YAH (Youth Action Hudson), and I was a youth group leader at St. Francis of Assisi Perish in Stillwater Minnesota. STLF is a group mission trip to carry out service projects in 4 different communities over the course of 6 days. I work with a variety of organizations, and visit a college campus during my services. Through evening activities and reflection, the tour is an opportunity to build meaningful relationships and learn about issues affecting communities across the country and in my own. STS is a group of students at the High School that devote 1 hour out of their schedule to work with the special needs students to help them with their math, reading, and social skills. We also spend time focusing on tapping into their creative abilities through art, music, and physical activity twice a week. YAH is a non-profit organization that believes the young people of the Hudson community are one of the biggest assets when it comes to serving others and shaping future generations. We get together to clean up our roads, the St. Croix river, run soup kitchens, ring bells at local grocery stores for free-will donations, and many other community projects. As a youth action leader at my perish, St. Francis of Assisi, I helped middle school students take the necessary steps to be confirmed throughout the course of the 2013-2014 school year. Alongside the groups founder and main instructor, I helped organize field trips to cathedrals, churches, soup kitchen visits, and learning activities to accomplish the necessary steps to becoming a part of the perish. I take pride in what I involve myself in in my community, and would love to continue aiding and improving communities around me as I grow.
