Franklin High School: Student Spotlight
Reilly Stahl, Senior

About the student…..

Q: What is it like to be on the golf team?

A: It’s a lot of fun. You get to miss a lot of school because we have lot of matches. They’re so long and we have to leave really early every time we go and play.

Q: Have you ever gotten hurt playing the sport?

A: Yes! One time I actually got hit in the temple with a golf ball. It was going really fast right off the pier. It hit my head and I had to go to the hospital.

Q: Was it the other team or your team?

A: It was one of my opponents.

Q: What is it like to work with your teammates?

A: They make it a lot of fun at practice and matches, especially Alex. She is a lot of fun. 

Q: If you could tell people one thing about golf, what would it be?

A: That it’s not just a sport for old men! Anyone can play.

Q: Where is your favorite place to play golf?

A: Probably Highlands Country Club. It’s super nice and they have a lot of free stuff.

Q: Who is your favorite golf player?

A: I really like Rory McIlroy.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about your coaches?

A: Probably that they don’t really get that frustrated. If we’re having a problem, they will work with us until we can fix it and they never really get mad.

Q: What’s it like having to play with your sister?

A: It is kinda frustrating, because if one of us is having a bad day, we are always compared to the other. One match she happened to beat me and, so, it obviously looked a lot worst on me because she did better, when usually I would not have to worry about being compared to someone else.

Q: Your coaches don’t compare you two?

A: Oh, everyone does. Like if someone asked how I did, they would also ask how Olivia did and ask if I did better than her or if she did better than me.
