Varsity boys golf will participate in the first round of the Hacienda League Playoffs at Mountain Meadows Thursday, April 20.
Freshmen Bryan Yu and Tyler Nguyen, sophomores Alrik Pan, Jesse Peh and Brendan Yeats and junior Adrian Edralin will be competing against Rowland, West Covina, Diamond Ranch, Charter Oak, Los Altos and Chino High School. In preparation for the matches, boys golf has been practicing from Monday to Thursday with workouts on Fridays. The top two players from Walnut will play at the California Country Club on Tuesday, April 25 for a chance to play on the CIF Team Monday, May 15.
“It’s my first league finals, and I am really confident. I’m just going to play like [the match is] a practice round,” Nguyen said. “I’m excited to represent this school for golf and it is time to put whatever we learned this season to action. We all practice hard and spend more hours to perfect our game. I feel like we have a lot of potential, and this may be our best chance to win this year.”
