Athlete of the Week: Jocilyn Onnen


The Grundy Center girls golf team won their 10th state title in school history, now the most championships of any school in Iowa.  Four of their top six golfers return next season including our Athlete of the Week who led the team in scoring all year long.

Spartans' Sophomore Jocilyn Onnen was fourth in the state as a freshman and improved to second place this year. She also plays basketball and volleyball but in a sport where female participation is not high, Onnen posseses a unique passion for golf.

Onnen started playing golf with her mom and dad when she was six years old. Now, she plays everyday. Dad is no longer the teacher.

Onnen normally shoots in the low to mid 80's but expects herself to be under forty every nine holes.  A league, regional and district champ already, Schupbach believes it's only a matter of time before Onnen becomes an indiviudal state champ.
