Flashes of Inspiration: Women's Golf Head Coach Offers Pep Talk

Today’s Flashes of Inspiration comes from Lisa Strom, Kent State University’s head women’s golf coach, who offers a pep talk to all in the university community struggling under the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strom talks about finding ways to stick to a healthy routine, even as social distancing continues for months. 


The Golden Flashes women’s golf team was ranked No. 5 in the nation when the pandemic forced an early end to college sports. The team was hoping to make a run at the national title, having already beaten No. 1 ranked Texas in late February at the ICON Invitational hosted by Houston at The Woodlands Country Club. The ICON victory, by a seven-stroke margin, was the fifth tournament win of the season for the Golden Flashes.

The team was on its way to Augusta, Georgia, to play in the Valspar Invitational when the play was halted in March.  At the time, Kent State was four tournaments shy of the Mid-American Conference Championship, where the team had hoped to seek its 22nd straight MAC championship.
