Bolles graduate Schiavone leads the Irish into spring season

Chloe Schiavone, a 2020 Bolles graduate and sophomore at the University of Notre Dame, earned a 54-hole total of 6-under 210 in three consecutive rounds of 70 in the Westbrook Invitational hosted by the University of Wisconsin at the Westbrook Village Golf Club in Peoria, Ariz., Feb. 25-28. It is the first top-five individual finish for Schiavone, who missed a large portion of her first season at Notre Dame in 2020-21 with an injury.

Including a fourth-place finish in the Westbrook Invitational, Schiavone had finished in the top 10 in four of her last five tournaments and had three top-10 finishes for the Irish. Schiavone played in one tournament during the shortened 2020-21 season before sustaining an injury and undergoing hand and wrist surgery. She made her collegiate debut at the Heroes Ladies Intercollegiate in February 2021 and led the Irish by tying for 28th.

She is a 2018 Florida Player of the Year and two-time Florida Times Union Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019. She began attending The Bolles School in kindergarten and was an integral part of the private school’s golf team. She tied for first in the district tournament and finished third in the regional as an eighth grader. She also played tennis and middle school basketball and softball for Bolles.

Schiavone is the daughter of Ortega resident and dermatologist Frank Schiavone, a 1975 graduate of Notre Dame. Her mother, Lori Schiavone, who died when Schiavone was eight years old, was a swimmer at Arizona State University.
