Since she was eight years old, senior Katie Freiert has always been driven to improve her golf game. Her passion for the sport stemmed from playing with her father throughout her childhood and transitioned to having personal trainer later on.
“She has a coach at Pine Ridge Golf course, and she will invite the girls to all the clinics that they offer. She shares her knowledge of her game to her teammates,” head coach Jamie Bare said.

Freiert is always willing to assist the team in any capacity, including encouraging fellow players.

“She’s great to answer questions about golf and help you succeed, because she’s very knowledgeable about the sport,” fellow senior teammate Grace Federico said.

Freiert is one of the team’s hardest workers and is determined to improve her skill.

“She is the most dedicated player in season and out of season. Her dedication to the team motivates others. You can tell she’s been working hard all offseason,” Bare said.

Freiert and her team finished up their regular season with a record of three wins and three losses.

“The best part of my season for me has been the opportunity to improve my short game and help the new players,” Freiert said.

Freiert qualified to play in the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) state championship Oct. 22 at the University of Maryland golf course. She finished with a score of 95 in 27th place and hopes to further her golf career in college.

Leading by success and mentoring her teammates, Freiert proves to be an influential presence.

“Her knowledge of the game and her consistent work ethic not only improve her game, but the women’s team as a whole,” Federico said.
