  • Drew Nienhaus '21

    In early August, Drew Nienhaus '21 won the Gateway PGA Junior Tour Championship! In her interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, she shared:

    "On the girls side, it came down to the last hole to decide the Tour Division and overall winners between a pair of golfers from three-time defending state champion St. Joseph’s.

    Drew Nienhaus, who will be a junior, carded a 73-79-152 to finish at 8-over, edging past teammate Mia Rallo, a sophomore-to-be who shot a 76-77-153.

    “Playing with my teammates not in the high school season is amazing because when we play with each other we make each other better,” Nienhaus said. “I’ve been playing with Nicole (Rallo, Mia’s sister) the last couple tournaments and I love playing with her because she’s my best friend, but getting to play with Mia today was different and she’s so much fun, too.”
