Arvilla was elected into the Hall of Fame in 2013.
Arvilla coached girl’s golf at Grinnell for 44 years. During that time, Grinnell won five state titles and finished second 5 other times.
Arvilla had a simple goal for each of her players: take a beginning freshman and have her shooting in the 40’s for nine holes by the time she was a senior. All but one her players during her 44 year coaching career met this goal.
