Brooklyn Spicer

White House Heritage senior Brooklyn Spicer added one accomplishment in her historic golf career at Heritage, becoming the first female golfer to sign and continue her collegiate golf career. 

Spicer chose Brescia University, a private, Catholic NAIA school in Owensboro, Kentucky. 

“Brooklyn came to us in 201 and Coach Mike Petrone and myself could not have been more pleased,” Heritage coach Terri Palmiter said. “My daughter was the first girl to ever make it to Regionals in 2013 as an individual then Brooklyn came and helped the team win their first-ever girls’ district runner-up in 2014.” 

In her Heritage career, Spicer earned several accolades as a golfer. Heritage earned three district runner-ups and back-to-back Robertson County Cup wins with Spicer on the team, but her individual honors extend well beyond the district and Robertson County. 

Spicer earned two individual district runner-ups, one region runner-up, back-to-back individual Robertson County Cup winner, Wilson Cup winner and Rhea County Invitational winner. 

She also is the first female golfer to make it to the state tournament and the only Heritage golfer to ever compete for three consecutive years. 

As an 11-year golfing veteran, Spicer was also a junior girls’ coach at First Tee of Middle Tennessee. 

“We can’t replace a Brooklyn Spicer but we can share her accomplishments with other young ladies who come through our program,” Palmiter said. “Mike Petrone and myself have been blessed by wonderful players in our program at Heritage. In three years, we have had five players sign golf scholarships. That is not to brag on us but to say how thankful we are to have been able to help mentor and provide the opportunities for the players. They made the accomplishments.  There is nothing like seeing a kid’s dream come true and being a part of it.”
