Getting into the swing of family time

Clara Hosman loses senior golf season but will play in college


Clara Hosman has been seeing a lot more of her family this spring.

Hosman, who was heading into her senior season on the girls golf team at Legend this spring, will be playing golf in the fall at Division II Post University in Waterbury, Connecticut. She was forced to sit back this season as the Colorado High School Activities Association canceled spring sports because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“My parents usually have time for work, so it’s been really nice hanging out with them,” said Hosman. “We’ve been getting a lot of quality time together. But if not, we’ve been going on hikes, taking my dog out, and my dad and I go play golf when it’s available.

“Unfortunately we can’t go hit balls, which is a little frustrating because I’m trying to get ready for my college season, but we just go out and play usually at Spring Valley or Plum Creek. It’s been busy but good. The courses are in good condition.”

Coach’s take:

`Clara has been one of those players coaches will always remember: the ultimate teammate, leader and person. Clara would give herself to help others if needed. Her best golf awaits her as she was just beginning to top into her potential. She will be truly missed at Legend but not forgotten.’

Jay Nelson,

Legend girls golf coach

Q&A with Hosman

What is the hardest thing about missing your senior season?

Probably not getting the closure. I look forward to golf season all year, being out there with all my friends and being out there competing against the rivals, and my senior year I was looking forward to competing in the state championship and really just getting a closure to the high school season and having a true goodbye to all the teammates and coaches

What would have been your goals if you had played this season?

Last year I finished 14th in the state championship so I was hoping to get top 10. The whole team was doing good this year, so hopefully we would have finished top five in the state championships.

How does missing the season affect your college plans, if at all?

It hasn’t yet affected me but I guess some schools are delaying their processes to follow up, but so far my college has not. So I think we are still good for the fall season.

What is your favorite sports team?

Denver Broncos, because it’s more of a family-cultured thing and my dad is really into it. It’s fun to watch games with him.

What is your favorite book?

“The Hate U Give.” There’s a lot of perseverance in it and it is written well.

What is your favorite TV show?

“Friends.” It’s a comedy and an entertaining show.

What is your favorite food?

My mom’s sloppy joes. They are very good.
