My name is Kanna Crosland, I'm 17 years old, and I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a junior at the Salt Lake Center For Science Education. I was born in 1998 and have lived in Salt Lake, San Francisco and Tokyo, Japan.
I started to play golf at the age of 6, when my parents started to play as well. In the beginning I didn't understand the opportunities I had to play golf in remarkable places and have exceptional instruction. When I was about 12, I began to play in Junior PGA tournaments and now Utah Junior Golf Association (UJGA) and Future Champions Tour (in Southern California), the competition peaked my interest and changed the way I practice, play and enjoy the game.
Since starting high school golf I’ve won regular season tournaments, played every tournament in the number one spot, and in both years taken second in region, top ten at state and been Utah First Team All-State. Last season (2016) I was selected as team captain. As a sophomore in 2015 I scored the region’s all time low tournament score with a -3. In 2016 I finished regular season in overall first place, was the region champion and placed 4th at the State tournament.
This winter I've been practicing hard indoor and played tournaments in Arizona and California. I'm looking forward to my final high school season and to playing a full summer schedule of junior golf.
I'm also a varsity swimmer at East High, which helps me stay in shape, swimming has taught me to be self disciplined and to push myself. By practicing and succeeding at swimming, a sport that I'm not naturally talented at, I've applied the same work ethic to my golf practice.
I love school and have attended the Salt Lake Center for Science Education since sixth grade. I enjoy the emphasis on math and science and am currently in honors math and honors physics. My GPA is currently 3.9 and after taking the ACT my score is 32.
For university I’m working to narrow my field of study, but I am interested in biology, and design and architecture.
Since the high school and UJGA seasons are just getting underway I’ll continue to update my golf schedule & results, videos and academic progress. I hope you’ll follow my progress and please contact me with any questions or suggestions.
