Girls Golf won with a total score of 190-227 in their GOW against Irvine High School Tuesday, September 17, finishing 37 shots ahead.
“This is not the best performance of our team,” senior captain Emy Zhu said. “I think I could’ve do better, but I’ll learn from my mistake.”
Despite the winning streak in CIF, the girls never underestimate their opposing teams and practiced routinely. They managed to squeeze time out of their own agenda both in school and outside of school in order to maintain consistency throughout all of their performances.
“At school, I usually practice for about an hour or two, or an hour and a half,” junior Emily Tao said. “If I’m by myself, I usually practice more…45 minutes of swings , 45 minutes chipping, and 45 minutes putting.”
Even though Coach Kevin Kasper spoke highly of senior captain Nodoka Honda, who performed a score of 35 on par 36, He believes that there is still room for improvement.
“Nodoka is shotting pretty high…” Coach Kasper said. “I think we need to practice a little more.”
Coach Kasper expressed concerns about their impending match against Woodbridge, one of the strongest competitors in the CIF Championship.
“Woodbridge is the beast,” Coach Kasper said. “[We will] forget about today’s game and break the Woodbridge curse.”
The girls’ next game is going to be on September 26 against Northwood at Oak Creek.
