Lady Spartans golfer commits to Kaskaskia

WALTONVILLE — Lindsey Reeves will play her collegiate golf at Kaskaskia College.

“They’re not only getting a golfer, they’re getting a good person,” Waltonville coach Allen Haley said. “She’s a hard worker. She’s steady, dependable. You can count on her.

“Golfing-wise her best golf is yet to come.”

The Waltonville senior announced her plans on Friday at the high school. Reeves qualified for three sectionals during her career at Waltonville. Last fall, as a senior, she advanced from the Centralia regional after finishing with a 97. Kaskaskia coach Jay Garrett saw Reeves play in the event.

“She seems to have a very positive attitude on the golf course,” Garrett said. “She’s also a really good student, and that’s something we emphasize at Kaskaskia College.”

Reeves said she plans on playing a lot before the college golf season starts.

“That’s my first thing and foremost is to play as much as I can, enjoy the beautiful weather hopefully and just get out on the course as much as I can,” Reeves said.

Reeves didn’t start playing the sport until her freshman season. She started playing because other members of her family enjoyed the sport.

“I feel like it came naturally to me,” Reeves said. “My brother has helped me a lot. He’s played since he was 5 years old and could swing a golf club, and he has helped me a lot with everything I know how to do today.”

She added her college selection involved her future agricultural business education plans.

“I think going to Kaskaskia is good for me just because it is a smaller school, and I think they focus more on their education and I really want to be focused on my education along with golf.”
