Natalie Brosig, 2021
My name is Natalie Brosig and I am part of the class of 2021 at McDowell High School in Erie, Pennsylvania. My ultimate goals are to play golf in college and continue to excel in academics while being involved in my community.
As of the end of my 2020 season, my biggest golf achievements are getting as low as a +0.7 handicap compiled almost exclusively of tournament rounds, winning multiple Hurricane Junior Tour events, and placing sixth individually at the PIAA State Championship. I will continue to work at lowering my handicap and winning and competing at events in 2020, with an eye on competing in college in the fall of 2021. My other golf highlights are listed on my achievements page.
While I excel on the golf course I succeed in the classroom as well. I’ve learned how to use my time effectively to get school work done correctly since I miss so much school during golf season. I am in the top 6.4% of my class with a 4.261 GPA and am a member of the National Honor Society. I’m taking all honors and AP courses. During my sophomore year, I successfully completed Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus (typically an 11th grade course) as well as AP Statistics (typically a 12th grade course). During my junior year I successfully completed AP Calculus, AP Language and Composition, and Honors Chemistry. I scored a 1350 on my SATs, including a 700 in math and a 650 in reading. I hope to continue my academic success throughout college.
Being a captain of a varsity sport, I have a lot of school pride. This helps me be involved in activities within my school to give back to my community and the school that offers me so many opportunities. I am enrolled in McDowell Honors College, Ambassador Program, Key Club, and Math Club. Outside of school I volunteer with LPGA Girls Golf of Erie by helping young girls learn to golf and have fun at the same time, while “changing the face of the game.”
All in all, I am a good example of an involved student athlete and I am excited to continue my success in college.
