Girls’ golf prepares for League opponents

By Lucy Putnam

As the fall season gets underway, the members of the girls’ golf team are gearing up for their season’s biggest challenge when they face Mission League powerhouse Notre Dame on Oct. 11, according to rising senior Jessica Wibawa ’13.

“Notre Dame has been our biggest competition for the past two seasons,” Wibawa said.

The Knights, led by reigning Mission League MVP award winner Katelyn Reynolds, won the Northern Division CIF Championship last season.

The Wolverines finished fifth at that same tournament.

Team leaders for the Wolverines this season include Wibawa, who was the Wolverines’ lowest scorer last season, Maddy Abrahams ’14, Amanda Aizuss ’13 and Kate Kushi ’14.

“I am looking forward to playing lots of golf, and getting a lot closer to beating Notre Dame,” Aizuss said.

All four players played in individual events over the summer to prepare for the upcoming season.

Over the summer, Wibawa qualified to play in the Optimist Junior International Championships in Florida at the PGA National Golf Course, host of the Honda Classic in men’s professional golf.

The 2011 season has been shortened so that teams will play league opponents once per week instead of twice as it has been in years past.
