Why Anderson was selected:

The Joliet Township co-op junior tied for medalist honors with a 77 to help her team to repeat as Southwest Prairie Conference Tournament champions with a 336 total.

Anderson talked with Herald-News sportswriter Curt Herron. Below is an edited transcript.

Herron: What did you like about your performance last week in the SPC Tournament?

Anderson: It was raining so the greens were a huge guess. After smacking my farthest drive I've hit on the first hole, it was the best feeling and I knew that it was going to be a good day.

Herron: What do like most about your team?

Anderson: I love everyone on the team and I love how it's more like a family than a team. I've grown up with them so we help each other and whatever we need, we have each other.

Herron: What do like most about competing for Joliet Township?

Anderson: The co-op is an interesting aspect because having two different schools is fun. We each have our own atmosphere and get to hear the different stories from each school.

Herron: What do you like most about golf?

Anderson: I've played golf forever. I like how good it makes me feel when I've hit a good drive, swing or putt. And when I hear the ball drop in the cup, it's one of the best sounds.

Herron: Who's your biggest influences?

Anderson: My parents, Beth and Brad. They never pushed me to do too much and it was like if you want to, you can do it.

Herron: Where's the best place that you've visited and where would you like to visit?

Anderson: Hawaii. And I want to go to Italy.

Herron: What's your favorite TV show and movie?

Anderson: 'Dexter' and 'Hairspray'.

Herron: What type of music do you like and who's your favorite artist?

Anderson: I like indie music that's mellow stuff. And Billie Eilish.

Herron: Who's someone that you would like to meet?

Anderson: I'd really want to meet Jordan Spieth.

Herron: Who's your favorite sports team and athlete?

Anderson: Minnesota Vikings. And Jordan Spieth.

Herron: What do you like to do in your free time?

Anderson: I hang out with my friends.

Herron: What's your favorite food?

Anderson: Mexican

Herron: What's been your favorite class in school?

Anderson: AP Psychology.

Herron: What do you want to do in the future?

Anderson: I want to go to college and really want to continue my golf career in college. And I want to study occupational therapy.
