Pouring it On

The Saint Ignatius girls’ varsity golf team has definitely shown its strength at SI. As one of the strongest golf teams in the area, it was quite a disappointment when they lost the first match against their rival Presentation last season. The team knew they had to come back stronger if they were going to win the next time they faced them.

When the second match came around, the SI team was feeling confident in their game until it started to downpour. As both teams proceeded to tee off in the rain, Presentation’s coach playfully told SI’s coach Julius Yap, “We’re out to get you guys.” When Coach Yap told the team what Presentation’s coach had said, they did not allow this to faze them.

Saint Ignatius beat Presentation by a mere two strokes that match. Team captain Mackenzie Dowling ’14 says, “We plan on playing our best this season and staying strong as a team.”
