TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Women's Golf Team at the University of Toledo is continuing to help others even with their busy schedules.
Hitting a golf ball is not easy to do, but the Women's Golf Team at Toledo sure makes it look that way. With already six top five finishes this year the Lady Rockets are also winning in the community by helping to fight hunger.
"What's today, what's the future and what kind of difference are we making in Toledo?"
That is what Toledo's Head Coach Nicole Hollingsworth asks her team every day.
The UT Women's Golf Team helps feed the less fortunate every Wednesday at That Neighborhood Church in Toledo, but their time volunteering goes way beyond just serving food.
"This really feeds my soul and I love coming down here and that is what I've seen happen with Nicole and her team,” said Sr. Pastor Patrick Cannon.
"We don't see this part of Toledo every day," said senior Jennifer Elsholz. "These people just need our help."
"It was eye opening for me, but it was a good eye opening," said senior Stephanie St. John.
Toledo has traveled nearly 13,000 miles for golf tournaments this season all while maintaining a 3.4 team GPA. But the biggest reward they say is giving back.
"They're tired, I'm tired, but we love coming down here because it's not just about making ourselves feel better, it's about helping other people. It's about serving, that's what life is all about really," said Hollingsworth.
"We are taught to be committed to what we do and we love doing it, so technically it's a good commitment because we want to come back, it's not like we are being forced to do this,” said Stephanie.
