Aleya Peete has been named girls golf coach at Hilliard Bradley, pending school board approval.

Peete, 23, replaces Chuck Burkhart, who stepped down after two seasons.

“Aleya is young, but she has a lot going for her and is excited for the experience,” athletics director Nick Van Dyne said. “She knows golf and is mature beyond her years.

“Coach Burkhart resigned in early June and said he didn’t have the time necessary to give the girls the time they deserved. He did a great job for us.”

Peete is the daughter of late PGA Tour player Calvin Peete, who died in 2015 at age 71.

Aleya Peete played golf at Delaware State and received her master’s degree in art education from Ohio State this spring. She will begin teaching art at Darby Elementary School this coming school year.

Last year, Bradley finished fourth (14-12) in the four-round OCC-Cardinal Division tournament behind champion Dublin Jerome (26-0). This fall, the Jaguars will begin competing in the OCC-Central with Dublin Coffman, Hilliard Davidson, Olentangy Liberty, Olentangy Orange and Upper Arlington.

Rising seniors Callie Hribar, April Parkin and Allie Waggener are expected to be key returnees for the Jaguars.
