Staff Halloween Photos

Girls' Golf Victorious at Star Ranch!


The Lady Chaps started Halloween 2017 in style with a convincing win by Westlake I and a Top 10 by Westlake II at a windy, cold Star Ranch (par 71). 

Congratulations to our tourney sub-par leaders Sadie Englemann (67) and Elena Castanon (69) and to Lauren Luu (78) for also making the Top 10 All-Tourney Team!  Lauren set a personal tourney best and we also had Izzy Hallberg, Kathryn Jones, and Meghan Meserole make the Top 20 with solid, consistent play.  All our girls showed toughness and determination in the tough conditions!

One cool scorecard highlight was Elena's 2 for eagle on the short par 4 #6(she made a 30 footer) followed by a chip-in birdie 2 on the par 3 #7.
