Conway High School Sophomore Casey Ott has been named the Wendy's Golf High School Player of the Year.
Ott, along with Wil Gibson of Jonesboro, was announced as this year's winner by the Arkansas Activities Association this week.
Ott is the second consecutive sophomore to win the award in the girl’s division. She secured this year’s title by winning the Girl’s Overall State Golf Championship with a four-over par round of 76.
Besides being the Overall State Champion, Ott is also the All Arkansas Preps Girls Golfer of the Year.
Her coach says she is an outstanding young lady who works hard playing the game.
"We are so proud of Casey. She is a complete student-athlete and deserves all the success that comes her way," says Coach Janet Taylor. "She is a great ambassador for our golf team, school, and community. And YES, she is only a sophomore!"
