Asheville School to Reestablish Golf Programs in 2020
Asheville School announced on October 15 that it will reestablish a golf program for boys in the spring of 2020 and for girls in the fall of 2020.
In making this announcement, Head of School Dr. Anthony Sgro said, “I am very excited that we will be reintroducing golf to the Asheville School community as a Varsity sport. We look forward to seeing the team strengthen in the coming years. I want us to have a very competitive program that will be highly successful at the conference and state levels.”
Dr. Sgro added, “In past years, we have had some very strong and successful golfers in our community. Alumna Rachel Kuehn ’19 is having a very successful college career already. I hope she will serve as an inspiration to future generations of Asheville School golfers.”
Keuhn, a freshman at Wake Forest University, recently won an individual title at the September 15 – 18 ANNIKA Intercollegiate Tournament. According to Wake Forest, Keuhn is the first player in program history at Wake Forest to win an individual title in her collegiate debut.
Athletic Director Carl Boland 1999 said he looks forward to welcoming golf back at Asheville School. “I am excited about bringing golf back to Asheville School as a varsity sport,” Boland said. “It is our intention to build a competitive program for boys and girls in the coming years, and I am confident that this program will be well-supported by our school and alumni community.”
