Madison McGarrh

Wingspan: What school did you choose?

McGarrh: “East Texas Baptist University.

Wingspan: Why did you choose this school?

McGarrh: “As soon as I went on campus I just knew that that’s where I wanted to go the next four years. I just kind of got that feeling.”

Wingspan: What aspects appealed to you?

McGarrh: “This will actually be their first year having a golf program and so I think just being able to start a first year program. I’m actually super pumped about that.”

Wingspan: What are you expecting from being a college athlete?

McGarrh: “I’m expecting to be super busy a lot, but I think it’s gonna teach me a lot too; time management. I’m excited.”

Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?

McGarrh: “So I went on a few college visits. I actually fell in love with this school I went to before East Texas and then immediately changed my mind and kind of just thought about it for a few months. Then finally just called up the coach and was like, ‘hey this is where I’m going.’ ”

Wingspan: What other options were you contemplating?

McGarrh: “I was looking at just a few other colleges – University of Arkansas Monticello, Oklahoma City University, Colorado Christian.”

Wingspan: How do you plan to prepare?

McGarrh: “Our seasons almost over but we are about to go to regionals. I’m just hoping to make the best out of this season and have all summer just to prepare for next season.”

Tyler Garrigus

Wingspan: What school did you choose?

Garrigus: “University of Arkansas Monticello.”

Wingspan: Why did you choose this school?

Garrigus: “Because they have a good golf program and it’s close to home.”

Wingspan: What aspects appeal to you?

Wingspan: What are you expecting from being a college athlete?

Garrigus: “I am expecting  a lot of dedication and time to be spent on the golf course because the grind never stops.”

Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?

Garrigus: “It took me a pretty long time to make the decision. After sending lots of applications and emails to college coaches, it took me a while but I think I found the right school.”

Wingspan: What other options were you contemplating?

Garrigus: “I was probably contemplating the chemistry throughout the team and the compatibility that I would have with the players.”

Wingspan: How do you plan to prepare?

Garrigus: “Just practicing a lot of golf and making sure all my school work gets handled.”

Sarah Buss

Wingspan: What school did you choose?

Buss: “I committed to Trinity University in San Antonio.”

Wingspan: Why did you choose this school?

Buss: “I don’t know, I just felt like it was a great opportunity. It’s a really good school; It’s small but they’re really great academically and my brother goes there so it’s not like I won’t know anybody.”

Wingspan: What are you expecting from being a college athlete?

Buss: “I think it’ll be difficult but I think I’ll manage to juggle the schedule pretty well, since it’s D3 it’s not as demanding athletically.”

Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?

Buss: “Like four months. I thought about it for a while before I decided.”

Wingspan: What other options were you contemplating?

Buss: “Not playing golf and going to OU. I thought it would be better for my career because when getting a job outside of college, you need something that puts you apart from everyone else. I thought golf would be that thing.”

Wingspan: How do you plan on utilizing the rest of the year to prepare for college?

Buss: “I guess just practicing golf a lot.”

Wingspan: What school did you choose?

Bray: “Northwestern Oklahoma State.”

Wingspan: Why did you choose this school?

Wingspan: What aspects appealed to you?

Bray: “Making new friends and starting to learn how to be like a grown up.”

Wingspan: What are you expecting from being a college athlete?

Bray: “To just get better in every aspect of my game on and off the court and making new teammates and starting new traditions.”

Wingspan: How long did it take to make this decision?

Bray: “A couple of weeks.”

Wingspan: What other options were you contemplating?

Bray: “I was choosing between Arkansas-Fort Smith and Louisiana Tech just because they’re really competitive schools and I really like them but I just knew Northwestern was the right fit for me.”

Wingspan: How do you plan to prepare?

Bray: “Free time and my mom. My mom does everything for me and once I leave I’m not going to have her. I’m really going to utilize free time and hanging out with my friends before I leave.”
