Broken Arrow’s Avery Clevenger – Golf Spotlight Presented by Barracuda Staffing

 

Broken Arrow golfer Avery Clevenger says that she has played the sport for as long as she can remember.

“I started playing golf because my dad played all the time and that’s really what sparked my interest for it,” she said.

Clevenger definitely has pride in being a BA Tiger. Her favorite thing about competing for her high school is getting to show it off.

“I love playing for Broken Arrow,” she said. “I love getting ready for a tournament and getting all decked out in my school’s logo.”

Although she says this season wasn’t perfect, Clevenger worked on improving and getting better at the game, seeing the results of her work as the season went on. 

“This season was good but it could have been better,” she said. “My first couple of tournaments were a little rough but I definitely improved my scores throughout the season.” 

Broken Arrow girls golf coach Charlie Brown says that Clevenger’s competitive drive is what makes her strive to be better.

“She works so hard because she hates to lose and that’s what drives her to get better,” said Coach Brown.

Clevenger says that if the game of golf has taught her one thing, it’s patience.

“Golf has taught me to be patient. You have to work for everything that you can accomplish,” she said.

A self-motivated individual, Clevenger knows that success doesn’t come without putting in work. 

“What motivates me to do good in athletics is that I want to be the best that I can be and I love to work for that,” she said.

Outside of BAHS track, she is also involved in competitive soccer for TSCH and in the youth group at her church. After high school she hopes to continue her golf career in college.
