Girls' Golf Dominates Mitty by 29
Francesca Ledesma '15
Focused and determined, varsity golfer Jamie West '16 putted the ball into the hole, giving her a score of 34 or 2 under par. On September 9th, the girls' varsity golf team walked off the Spring Valley Golf Course in Milpitas with their first league win against the Mitty Monarchs. The final score was 191-220: SI just two strokes away from the course record, which a former SI girls' team currently holds. The other players came pretty close after Jamie: Sam Gong '16 shot 37, Captain Haley Freisch '14 shot 38, and Sam Perez '15 shot 39. After their previous loss to Presentation, who squeezed by SI to win by one point, the Wildcats were determined to make a comeback. "I think the match went really well. It showed that our team is getting stronger as we advance further into the season," asserts Sam Perez '15.
"I'm looking forward to the rest of the season," stated varsity's head coach, Mr. Yap. "This match shows we have a good chance to qualify for CCS again this year." Mr. Yap proudly explained that if the girls continue their league hegemony, this year will be their 12th continuous WCAL win. Senior Alissa Aliotti '14 comments optimistically, "We have a really solid group of golfers this year, and I really believe that if we all play our best, we can win the rest of our matches. We'll have to fight for a win against St Francis, but we are definitely capable! I'm excited to see what our team can do." Look out for the girls' golfers this season; they're determined to win.
