Sophomore golfer last representative in girls’ playoffs

The girls’ varsity golf team concluded its first season with Head Coach Amy Alcott at the helm last week.  Though they started their league season with 3-0 start in Mission League play, the Wolverines again finished in second in the Mission League standings behind Notre Dame.

The team this year finished 9-1 in league play, their only loss in a nail-biter to Notre Dame on Oct.18, 250-246. 

After finishing second in the league standings, the Wolverines qualified for the CIF Northern team division regional, where they defeated Notre Dame.

However, they finished in 16th place out of the 20 teams that competed, which disqualified the squad from progressing further. Though their season as a team is now over, two members of the team, Melanie Borinstein ’11 and Tiffany Yang ’10 were selected to compete in the CIF Northern Division individual competition that took place on Nov. 1. 

Yang said before the tournament last Thursday that she was “ecstatic to be competing in the individual tournament [in Solvang, CA].” Yang was the only Wolverine representative as she shot a 94 at the River Course at Alisal in Solvang.

Borinstein was not able to represent the team because of personal reasons.
