 On Tuesday, Sept. 26, Girls’ golf succumbed to Claremont HS with a final score of 246-216.

 According to Ashley Ko (10), the team’s constant motivation and support contributed to her successful performance during the game, regardless of the loss.  

 “Golf is a mental game, and when my team gives me or [another player] who is down support, it raises us up [and] helps us [stay focused] when we are playing,” Ko said.

 Co-captain Chelsea See (12) says that the team practiced many drills at the hitting range to help inexperienced underclassmen overcome their obstacles and prepare for the upcoming games.

 Some of their drills include hitting to improve farther shots and putting shorter strokes on the golf range. The team also mentally prepared by taking time to encourage one another and give moral support.

 “It is very [beneficial] when we practice beforehand because it allows us to [prepare] and [remind] each other that we have each others’ backs, ” See said.

  Head Coach Mike Manassero says that despite this loss, the team is not discouraged and aspires to compete in CIF.

 “[Despite the loss,] the team did [very well]. Our biggest weakness is the ability to compete and I want the team to have a [positive] mentality and [know] that we [will] get to CIF,” Manassero said.   

 Girls’ golf will play at Glendora HS on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
