Lia Gutierrez helped her Chanute High School golf team to place third in State in 2019.
Individually, she placed 12th. In her sophomore year, she placed ninth, and in her junior year, finished seventh.
To help get her to this point, Gutierrez said she finds motivation from her aunt.
Off the course, she enjoys her job at a care facility, which enables her to help people. And she doesn’t have a favorite TV show.
Her mind, though, is solely focused on golf, as the sport also happens to be her favorite activity.
