All-Area Boys & Girls Golf
The following has been excerpted from Aaron Snyder's story in the Daily Independent:
Boyd County freshman Olivia Hensley earned the Golfer of the Year label. She survived a wild day in September at Hidden Cove Golf Course to seize the Region 11 individual title.
Hensley also placed better than any other Region 11 player in the state tournament, claiming 24th. She’s experienced little rest from the links since.
“Since the season’s been over, I’ve still been practicing,” Hensley said. “I’ve tried to almost every day, but I’ve taken some breaks here and there. I feel like (the breaks) honestly kinda help me sometimes.”
Hensley hopes to have started a personal streak of region crowns. If it’s in the cards, she will encounter success similar to that of Logan Conn, Paintsville’s No. 1 golfer over the past three seasons.
Olivia was also chosen by KYGCA as the Region 11 Player of the Year.
