Jimmies News · Jimtown GIRLS golf….History to be Made in 2015


Calling all Jimtown Girls who are not playing a sport in the fall…
Jimtown is Starting a Girls Golf Program!!

For the first time in school history, Jimtown will be putting together a girl’s golf team to play in the fall of 2015. Jimtown’s entry into the NIC this fall is a perfect time for this to happen. We are excited that we have an opportunity to add our 8th girls sport at Jimtown.
If you are interested in trying out for the team…we have some exciting opportunities for you to play golf this summer for FREE and possibly get a free ride to the golf course to practice. Jimtown’s home course is at McCormick Creek Golf Course in Nappanee. McCormick Creek has offered our new girls golf team the chance to play and practice over the summer there FREE of CHARGE. Interested girls will still need their own golf clubs. We also need to provide McCormick Creek a list of names of girls who are potential team members of the new Jimtown Golf Team so that they can identify you when you come to the course.
Any girls that are potential members of the girls’ golf team can get their name on that list by doing one of the following:

1. Sign up in the athletic director’s office
2. Email Athletic Director Nathan Dean at ndean@baugo.org

Play and practice as much as you want over the summer at McCormick Creek. Jimtown will also have organized practice sessions throughout the summer. Coach Elli will provide a school van to transport interested girls to the course on Tuesdays throughout the summer beginning on June 9th. Girls will have a chance to get on the driving range, practice putting green or play rounds of golf, at no charge. The practice time on those days will involve an 11am departure from JHS and a 3:00pm return.

Here are some important dates that you need to know if you want to try out for the new girls golf team at Jimtown High School:

 June 5th…last day of school for 2014-2015. Get your name on the list for free summer golf before you leave for the summer.
 June 9th…first Tuesday summer golf workouts with Coach Elli. (you can go on your own anytime you wish all summer for free—Tuesdays will be the only day Coach Elli will have transportation and organized coaching)
 July 31st ….first official IHSAA practice day. As of this date, all athletes will need to have their IHSAA pre-participation physical completed and all forms turned in. (you can download the forms by clicking HERE or pick them up in the main JHS Office.
 August 7th….our first golf match of the season.
