Anne Wooton Joins Pride Women's Golf Staff
The Greensboro College golf program has officially hired Anne Wooton as an assistant coach for women's golf. A native of Towson, MD, Wooton comes to Greensboro from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, where she graduated with a Bachelors Degree in History and Anthropology in May of 2010.
"I am excited to be a part of the Greensboro College community and look forward to building a women's golf team that will strive to attain the remarkable level of success that our men's team has achieved," said Wooton.
Wooton was a four year member of the Tiger golf team and was named team captain as a senior. In addition to her contributions on the course, Wooton was also successful in the classroom. She made the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Academic Honor Roll in each of her four years and received the distinguished honor of All-American Scholar by the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) as a senior.
"Golf has been an integral part of my life, having played in high school and college," Wooton added. "I welcome the opportunity to work with the women's team and hopefully instill in them the same love for the game that I have."
"Anne is going to be a huge factor in the success of the women's program here at Greensboro," said head Pride golf coach Dirk Fennie. "Her recruiting efforts, help in conducting practices and coaching the team at certain events will certainly help us moving forward. Her experience of juggling a successful academic and golf career at Trinity University will make her an excellent example for the young women to follow here at Greensboro College."
