Heading for Grace: Rochester golfer Ava Thomas signs

RHS golfer Ava Thomas said golf has been something that she's been interested in since she could walk.

The daughter of RHS golf coach Chad Thomas says golf has always been a key part of her life. 



Despite being just a junior at Rochester High School, the 2025 graduate is already setting plans for her next step in education. On Friday, Grace College women's golf coach Denny Duncan met with Thomas in the Rochester High School gym to sign her national letter of intent for the school. 

Thomas said she knew as a sophomore that Grace was the college she wanted to attend. The decision to sign on Friday was not a hard one.



As for her plans after college, Thomas said she hopes to eventually start a career in teaching.
