From a very young age, Ardmore’s Maile Glaser was always told by her parents to follow her dreams. On Monday afternoon, her dreams were able to lead her to one of her biggest accomplishments. In front of a packed Ardmore High School commons area full of teachers, friends, classmates and teammates, Glaser officially signed her National Letter of Intent to play college golf at Seminole State College for the Lady Trojans next fall. After signing her letter, the senior standout got emotional when speaking to the packed crowd, thanking her family and her Ardmore coach Marc Peters. “This is absolutely amazing,” Glaser said. “I’m so overcome with emotion right now, and I know for a fact I couldn’t have done this without everyone on my team and my family. They have all been my support system throughout this journey. I’m so glad this day happened.” “It means the world to see so many people here today,” Glaser added. “I absolutely love my school because they support pretty much every single sport. Golf is a small sport, so having this much support behind me is something I can’t describe or put into words.” During her time as a member of the Ardmore Lady Tigers, Glaser has managed to be a four-time state qualifier, as well as helping keep a recent streak alive of state appearance for the Ardmore girls golf program. This past spring Glaser was able to place in the Top-15 of the individual standings at the Class 5A state competition. Glaser will be joining a Seminole State squad which includes Alyssa King from Washington High School in Oklahoma and Peyton Galyean from Clear Creek High School in League City, Texas. The Lady Trojans managed to compete last year at the NJCAA National Tournament in Florida. “I like the whole rebuilding of the program that is going on right now,” Glaser said about Seminole State. “This school is going to provide me with all the tools I need to accomplish the fundamentals both athletically and academically so I can take another step closer to playing for a bigger college.” “My teammates are the reason why I have come out my shell, and Coach Peters,” Glaser said. “It’s meant the world to have Coach Peters by my side throughout this journey. He was my first grade P.E. teacher, and when I snapped my ankle in April, he was constantly checking up on me and making sure I could compete during regionals and state. I couldn’t have done any of this without a coach as supportive as he was and still is.” Glaser said she plans on studying Physical Therapy when attending college.
