Girls golf wins first place at tournament
Girls golf placed first at Troyâ€™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.
â€śGoing into the game, I was really nervous at first because I didnâ€™t really know anyone. After I played a while, I felt a little better about the people I was playing with and the course,â€ť freshman Taylor Fan said. â€ś[I think I did well] just in general because for individuals yesterday, I [placed] second.â€ť
Fan, along with freshmen Lauren Fue, Emma Hsieh and Nicole Zhang were selected by Coach Cecil Woods to compete in this tournament. The teamâ€™s overall score was 152, beating the second place team by 10 points.
â€śOn the first hole, I was nervous, so I mightâ€™ve chunked a few shots. After that though, I did pretty decently,â€ť Zhang said. â€śIt 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.â€ť
The tournament marked the end of the season. The Mustangs prepare for their first CIF round game on Oct. 23.
