Nearing the end of the season’s league matches, girls varsity golf co-captain Allyson Lee said the 12-player team has been improving steadily.
“We’ve been performing OK this season,” Lee said. “We lost some good players last year, but others have been stepping up.”
Co-Captain Meigan Lew said she has also noticed great improvement within the team and said the season is showing great potential.
“I have seen significant improvement in several players on our team who were beginners at golf when they were freshmen but have gradually developed and refined their skills. This gives me hope for the season and future seasons to come,” Lew said. “We even have the potential to place top three in our league and make it to CCS this year.”
Lee said the team’s success has come from hard work during practice.
“We practice in the mornings three days a week and in the afternoon two days (a week),” Lee said. “A typical morning practice consists of practicing putting, chipping and going on the range. For afternoon practice we usually go out and play on the course.”
With the amount of time they spend together, Lee said the team has lots of opportunities to build a solid relationship.
“The team dynamic is one of the best parts of the team,” Lee said. “We always have a good time together and cheer each other on. Outside of golf practice, we also have team hangouts.”
“Our team dynamic is at its peak,” Lew said. “Each player is so outgoing and open-minded that we have no problem communicating with each other. We all bring something to the table.”
Though the season is well underway, there are still many things to continue to look forward to Lee said.
“What I’m looking forward to most this season is welcoming the new freshmen, building team connections and working on my golf game,” Lee said. “I think the best part of the golf team is the community, as well as watching yourself and your teammates improve.”
And Lew said she is excited to see the team’s potential play out in its success.
She said, “We have put in a lot of time and effort into the team, so I hope to see it pay off because each and every team member deserves it.”
