Held each Spring, the Hutchison Golf Scramble raises funds to support a dynamic, competitive, and growing athletic program. When you join us as a sponsor or player, you help make it possible to offer invaluable, life-shaping athletic opportunities for girls at no additional cost to families. It further strengthens Hutchison's dedication to the development of mind, body, and spirit.
Senior student athlete Elizabeth Farnsworth was named High School Athlete of the Week by the Commercial Appeal after scoring 23 goals in three victories last week. Elizabeth is a three-time All-American, an Academic All-American, as well as Best of Preps Lacrosse Player of the Year in 2015. In 2016, Inside Lacrosse Magazine named her #6 on their list of Top Gun Juniors from across the nation.
A couple of years ago, there was a bright-eyed girl who had never played golf in her life before 6th grade. She had a pretty natural swing, but it needed refining. Her coach taught her the game and gave her the tools to improve her swing; but more importantly, helped her develop an intense love of the game. This passion is what drove her to continue to improve her skills. She worked week after week, even while playing other sports. A year later she won the middle school league championship.
I waited a few seconds as my friend stared pensively into the distance, processing my explanation to his questions about my job. When I came back into his focus, he replied, “Gosh, I wish someone had asked me that question when I was in high school.”
Mary Carson Pitts ’13 has made leaps and bounds on and off the field at Tulane. She recently graduated from the university with a degree in Business Finance, all while balancing her academics with an impressive athletic record.
These days, it’s easy to look at the Hutchison lacrosse team in awe. Over the past 15 years, the girls who have played lacrosse at Hutchison have combined skill, teamwork, and determination to build the best team in the city and state. The Hutchison Sting has captured seven consecutive Tennessee state lacrosse titles since 2010 and eight total state titles to date.
After a successful varsity fall sports season, six of our Sting athletes were honored by being named to The Commercial Appeal's Best of the Preps team in one of four sports: soccer, volleyball, golf, or cross country.
Hutchison senior Griffin Gearhardt has signed her NCAA National Letter of Intent to play lacrosse at Vanderbilt University. Griffin's passion for lacrosse began at an early age and has only grown since then.
We would like to extend our special thanks to our golfers, sponsors, and our tournament planning committee who supported Hutchison athletics through our annual Golf Scramble tournament on Monday, May 2. Despite the rain early in the day, it turned out to be a great afternoon for the golf tournament at Chickasaw Country Club. We would also like to congratulate all of our teams on their successes especially our overall winning team including Chip Campbell, Jacob Biddle, Sean Bowie, and Drew Cain. Thank you for your continued support of Hutchison athletics. Go Sting!
