Storyline

Outstanding female lead!
28 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

As a minority woman, this film spoke loudly to me. Don't give up despite the odds, keep doing your best, will be my take away after viewing this very inspirational film. An African-American woman swim coach at TSU becomes the first woman coach for a men's college golf team. Everything was an obstacle at this mostly African-American university, in particular, golf is just not a very popular sport for African-Americans. So Catana Sparks had to be creative and round up as best a team as she can, mostly recruiting internationally and ending up with a not so African-American team! We need more films like this, especially in America where people can see that with hard work, nothing is impossible!
