PCA Senior Mikayla Bardwell signs a Letter of Intent to play golf at the University of Tennessee.
Prestonwood Christian Academy (PCA) honored senior Mikayla Bardwell, of Lewisville, who signed a Letter of Intent to play golf at the University of Tennessee.
“I am incredibly proud of Mikayla, not just because of her accomplishments on the golf course, although they are many,” said PCA’s Head of School, Dr. Larry Taylor. “What impresses me more than her outstanding athletic talent, though, is her heart for the Lord. She is a leader at both our school and church, and she will definitely leave a void when she graduates. The University of Tennessee is getting a great student!”
Bardwell played on the 2015-16 TAPPS Team State Championship Team, which won by a record 66 shots, as well as on the 2016-17 TAPPS Team State runner-up team. At that State tournament, she finished individually in second place, out of first place by just one shot. She also shot a 63 in round 1 of the Lakeapalooza Tournament in the spring of 2017. Over the course of her four years at PCA, her scoring averages have continued to improve:
- Freshman: 88.3
- Sophomore: 79.27
- Junior: 76.7
- Senior: 72.1
This season, Bardwell is the captain of the 2017-18 PCA golf team and has individually medaled at both of the fall tournaments.
