Check In With Two 2017 Junior Grant Winners

With the Eagles Wings junior grant program we strive to find kids that are making a difference in their disc golf community. We are blessed to know that it is not just something they do once while they are in the year that they win the junior grant. We recently caught up with two of our 2017 junior grant winners. They continue to be involved in their local disc golf community, helping to make the sport that we all love even bigger.

Both Lydia Lyons and Virginia Polkinghorne compete in local events that were part of the Women’s Global event. Each of them won their division at these events. Virginia competed at the KC Diva Spring Feeva where there were 10 girls in her division, some of whom she helped to get started in the sport of disc golf. She won by a large margin but was very quick to thank her parents, sponsors and Eagles Wings for continuing to allow her to play the game that she loves. Check out the video of her acceptance speech here. Lydia competed at the First Annual Rose City Disc Golf Open. Lydia shots the lowest score of any woman that competed in this event, both in her division and not.

Additionally Lydia has spent some time helping out at a Family Fun Day event hosted by her local parks department. She is busy teaching more families about disc golf. By the pictures she sent to us, it looks like there will be more competition for Lydia in the near future.

Please continue to celebrate our 2017 Junior Grant winners as the continue to make a difference in their local disc golf communities.
