Personal Statement

Hello, my name is Ava Bankston.  I am a junior at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville, and will graduate in 2023.  I placed 4th in the TSSAA State Tournament in October 2020 as a sophmore (Large Private School Division) and also made All-State.  Just placed 2nd in the TSSAA State Tournament on Oct 4-5, 2021 shooting 72/72.   Also won my last Hurricane Junior tournament in which I competed shooting below par on Day 1 (70) and 75 on Day 2.  I have good length and consistently play courses about 6000 yards.

I am currently a 0.1 handicap and improving quickly (was a 2.0 several months ago).  My academics are also extremely important to me, as I take Honors and Advanced Placement classes in Math, Science and English, while maintaining a 4.0 GPA.  Scheduled to take the ACT in December 2021.
