Missouri Sports Hall of Fame bio:
Powell, who grew up playing golf at Hickory Hills Country Club with Payne Stewart, graduated in 1979 from Glendale High School after helping the Lady Falcons win the first two of their three consecutive state championships (1977, 1978). She then played at Stephens College before going on to memorable finishes in the Missouri Women’s Amateur and winning a Missouri Senior Championship. At Glendale, Powell placed fourth in the 1976 state meet, and then tied for fourth in 1977 and placed third in 1978. She went on to become a four-time runner-up at the Missouri Women’s Amateur and a three-time runner-up at the Missouri Girls Junior. She also qualified for a pair of U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateurs in the late 1980s. She won the Missouri Women’s Senior Amateur in 2012. Additionally, Powell coached the Missouri State University women’s golf team from 1993 to 2002, with the 2001 team winning the Missouri Valley Conference a year after placing second. She also has been an honorary life member of the Missouri Women’s Golf Association, in which she has served in a variety of roles, including vice president.
