My name is Dakota Tallent, I am 14 years old and I am a freshman/Class 2024 at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, NV. I am grateful that BGHS has recognized my academic achievement by giving me the opportunity to continue my educational journey. Over the next 4 years I intend to work as hard as I can on my golf development while achieving academic success to reach my goal to attend a Division I or II school while playing the game I love.
As for playing on my high school golf team, I have not had that opportunity due to COVID-19 restrictions but I am optimistic that will take place sometime at the end January 2021. I have had the opportunity to play in the USGA 6th U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship Qualifier. Even though my partner and I did not advance it was truly a great experience. It gave me the opportunity to see my short comings and provided me valuable information on what I need to do to improve as a player and as a member of a team.
