CORAL SPRINGS, FL – For the first time in program history, a Carson-Newman Eagle has received the Kim Moore Spirit Award. Senior Taylor Hayes was announced last week as this year’s Division II honoree, by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.
The award recognizes and honors a student-athlete or coach who exemplifies a great spirit toward the game of golf, a positive attitude on and off the golf course, mental toughness in facing challenges, and is a role model for her. It is named for Kim Moore, who played golf for the University of Indianapolis from 1999 to 2003. She was an inspiration to all as she persevered through many physical challenges while playing collegiate golf. Her positive outlook and dedication toward the game was only outdone by her sense of humor and passion for the game.
