MADISON -

The Madison Abundant Life/Country Day boys golf team has made great strides this season starting at the top.

Junior Maya Muldowney picked up the game only two years ago, but she's already playing at the number one position for the Challengers boys golf team.

"My dad's side of the family golfs and my grandpa's a huge golfer so my mom was like, 'Hey, why don't you try this?'" Muldowney said.

It didn't take long for coach Rick Zierath to see the potential.

"I watched her swing and said, you know, there's a lot of natural ability there," he said.

About halfway through the season, Zierath put Muldowney as the team's No. 1 golfer.

Muldowney said she's not slowing down anytime soon.

"There's always that added incentive of the girl playing with the guys," Muldowney said. "That kind of drives me more as well to be able to play on the same level and try to see if I can do better."
