Girls Student Athlete: Madi Giles
Madi Giles is a senior at Bear River and a four-year member of the girl’s golf team.
Madi has the talent to be one of the top players in the state this year. She has worked very hard on her golf game and it’s paying off. She continually sets a good example to the rest of the team on and off the course.
Madi displays a great attitude and sportsmanship among the other teams and players. Golf is a game of honor and integrity and Madi is a great representative of that. She also displays the same work ethic in the classroom. I’m impressed by how serious she is about her grades and school work.
Our first region tournaments were down in St. George. We played two golf tournaments and all five teams in our region brought six players. On Friday the tournament was at St. George Golf Club and Madi shot an 81 that day to take first place medalist honors. That is a great score so early in the season! Madi is a team captain and truly a leader on the team. I am extremely excited about this season and I believe Madi is going to have a special year.
Coach Jim Thomas
I have had the distinct pleasure of watching Madison Giles since she was just a little girl. You could tell early on, if she had her mind set on something, it would be very difficult to dissuade her.
It has been fun to watch her grow, not only into a great golfer, but a great young lady! She has worked extremely hard on her golf game and is a great example of what happens when you put the time and effort into a goal you have set!
As one of her teachers in the classroom, I was impressed how she was extremely conscientious and hardworking. She would come to class every day with a smile and great attitude, consequently she made everyone around her better. She has taken many upper division classes and maintained a 3.840 gpa throughout her high school career. I know that whatever she sets her mind to she will accomplish and I want to with Madi all the best in the furture.
