Girls golf wins first place at tournament

Girls golf placed first at Troy’s Junior Varsity Tournament on Thursday, Oct. 19.

The tournament was played on a nine-hole course at the Fullerton Golf Course against several other schools from the Southern California district, including Mira Costa and Troy.

“Going into the game, I was really nervous at first because I didn’t really know anyone. After I played a while, I felt a little better about the people I was playing with and the course,” freshman Taylor Fan said. “[I think I did well] just in general because for individuals yesterday, I [placed] second.”

Fan, along with freshmen Lauren Fue, Emma Hsieh and Nicole Zhang were selected by Coach Cecil Woods to compete in this tournament. The team’s overall score was 152, beating the second place team by 10 points.

“On the first hole, I was nervous, so I might’ve chunked a few shots. After that though, I did pretty decently,” Zhang said. “It was fun to try and get back on track after I messed up that first hole, and it was challenging at first, but I got better. I think my shots are more consistent now, and my short game has also improved.”

The tournament marked the end of the season. The Mustangs prepare for their first CIF round game on Oct. 23.
