Former Raider golfer Jillian Drinkard is college All-American

One of Appomattox County’s own — Jillian Drinkard — has been selected to the 2020 Division III All-American Second Team by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA). 

Drinkard, a 2018 graduate of Appomattox County High School, was a member of two VHSL Class 2 State Championship golf teams for the Appomattox Raiders in 2014 and 2017. 

Now a sophomore at Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C., Drinkard has achieved her second All-American honor in as many years. 

Drinkard graciously agreed to engage in the following Q&A session with the Times Virginian to keep the folks in her hometown informed about her college life and golf career beyond high school.
