Perkins-Tryon's Logan Allen - Athlete Spotlight - Presented by Law Firm of Boettcher, Devinney, Ingle and Wicker

Girls golf team member Logan Allen has been around golf most of her life, but didn’t start playing seriously until her freshman year of high school. Now a senior at Perkins High School, Logan is glad she made the decision to join the team.
“Sports to me is all about being competitive and respectful,” said Logan.
Not only is Logan dedicated to golf, she is also an active member of the art club, international club, and NASA. She also has been involved with the bowling team, but unfortunately, they did not have a season this year.
“Balancing school and life is a little difficult,” said Logan. “Even if it may be difficult, doing it little by little is better than just doing nothing at all.”
Staying motivated can be difficult for her at times, but she stays focused by keeping her goals in mind.
“Having motivation is not an easy task,” said Logan. “I like to remind myself how far I have come and how much work I have put in.”
Another great driving factor for Logan would be the people looking up to her.
“The fans I have mean so much to me. They motivate me into doing better,” Logan said.
Logan grew up in house that had a long rock driveway which she turned into a driving range.
“I would go outside on the driveway, find the roundest rocks, and I would hit them with my irons,” said Logan. “Those are pretty good memories.”
Family for Logan is everything and her biggest inspiration.
“They help me through thick and thin,” said Logan. “I know they will always be there for me.”
After high school, Logan will attend college and play golf at Central Methodist University in Missouri, which she is very excited for.
