Yoga, Golf and the NFL: Girls Go golfing says They Are Perfect Together!
FLASHBACK TO MARCH, 2010:
The Hunterdon Central girls' golf team was on a mission, coming off its 2009 state championship season and a 16-0 record. These young women were athletes for sure.
They went beyond the typical high school golf preseason. They worked in the weight room; spent much of the preseason in the school's gym working on their short game and swings; and, yes, they even did yoga.
The concept was 50-50 yoga and golf. HealthQuest's Kristi Carver ran the yoga session and the players took over by running the golf stations. Instant hit!
