Once she got the approval the team was off and running. Gaylord and five other girls were a part of the inaugural girls’ golf team at Vestal High School. She decided to combine her two passions. Gaylord set out to start a girls’ golf team at the school. To finish off her project and receive her award, Gaylord is working on putting together a girls’ golf clinic for younger age groups. The team has since added four more girls to the mix. Gaylord said they are looking forward to beginning their second year in the spring of 2021. “It definitely pushed me to try and be better and try and keep up with them and do as well as they did,” Gaylord told 12 News. VESTAL (WBNG) – Mia Gaylord has been a girl scout since kindergarten and has been playing golf since the 3rd grade. Still participating in Girl Scouts, Gaylord had to do a project to receive her gold award. The project had to be centered around something that would help the community. “When it first started I almost didn’t think it was going to happen because of the school’s budget,” said Gaylord. “But once we got it started we all really enjoyed our time and it was rewarding to see it all come together.” When she got to Vestal High School there was no girls’ golf team. Gaylord told 12 News she had to join the boys’ team if she wanted to continue playing the sport she loved. “I’ve had to document my time that I’ve worked on the project and then I submit a final report to them when I’m done and they approve if I get the award or not,” said Gaylord.
