Horney signs at Spalding; Jeeps to honor Terwiske

Horney signs at Spalding


JASPER — Jasper High School senior golfer Emily Horney signed Thursday to continue her golf career at Spalding University in Louisville.

Horney was a member of back-to-back state finalist teams at Jasper, including last fall’s squad that finished 10th at September’s state finals in Franklin. She was contacted by Spalding a couple months after the Wildcats’ season concluded.

Horney plans to study nursing while at the Division III school and would like to eventually work in a hospital’s emergency room or trauma center. Spalding, whose team is coached by former Nationwide Tour player Cory Kaufman, was also one of the schools that welcomed her plan to play golf while studying nursing, which factored largely into her decision.

As for leaving her Jasper team, her emotions are split. Horney said she’s excited for the opportunity to meet new people, but will certainly miss her Wildcat teammates.

“It’s going to be hard getting away from my Jasper team. We were more than a team,” Horney said. “I’m hoping it’s going to be the same when I get to college, but I’ll always come back and cheer for Annie (Getzin) and Annika (Harmon) and all of them. It’s going to be hard leaving all of them.”
