Franklin-Simpson Wildcats’ Athletic Director Matt Wilhite announced via social media that Sarah Dinwiddie is the new head coach of the Lady Cats’ golf team.
Dinwiddie has coached the golf team alongside Carrie Mylor for the past two seasons.
“I’m really looking forward to the season starting and getting back on the course with the girls,” Dinwiddie said. “I hope to continue growing the team and the girls golf program for Franklin-Simpson. We have a really exciting season ahead of us with a lot of opportunities to improve and grow as a team.”
Dinwiddie began playing for the Lady Cats’ golf program in the 8th grade and continued all through high school for a total of five years until 2010. She attended Transylvania University in Lexington, Kentucky for swimming and ended up joining the golf team the winter of her freshmen year and played throughout remainder of her time in college — for three and a half years. She was also a member of the NCAA Student Athlete Advisory Committee until 2014.
Returning players junior Maddie Hall and sophomore Conleigh Wilson are excited to have Dinwiddie as the head coach.
“We are all excited to see Coach Dinwiddie become head coach of our team,” Hall said. “She has been an amazing coach for all these years. While it is sad to see Coach Mylor go, I’m personally excited to see what Coach Dinwiddie does with the team.”
“I’ve been coached by Sarah since I started on the golf team in 7th grade. She has experience of playing in college and knows the game well,” Wilson said. “I’m excited to play for her this season! Can’t wait to get started.”
The 2020 golf season is scheduled to begin in early August.
