Golf is an individual sport where the player’s goal is to do better than they did last time. In terms of score, this team as a whole hasn’t won or lost a game. Every player recieves a score based off of their performance.

During the last game, they took everyone’s score into consideration and formed  a decision that determined who was the final winner. Everyone plays individually so team members just make sure to give it their best so that their overall score is good.

Juniors Lauryn Uhlenberg, Astrid Cabrera,  Bella Feinstein are the current team members from  Daniel Pearl Magnet High School. This was senior Maria Dannan’s last game of the season.

The team has done well this season. Two members of the team made it to the top 10 of best scores, receiving awards as the season progressed. Junior Astrid Cabrera always ended strong in 1st place with the lowest score of the entire league throughout the season.

“My score varied throughout the season from 61- 45, making my average score around 50, which got me eligible for city championships,” Cabrera said. “However, I had to decline due to a game interference with my outside volleyball team. Since I will also be playing golf next year, I felt like it was best to wait until next year, when I will have more experience.”

Junior Bella Feinstein only just started this sport during mid season, so she hopes to improve next year.

“Well I mean I never won any but I also never lost,” Feinstein said. “My goal is to get less than sixteen in one game so we could switch winners.”

Since the beginning of August, the lady patriots would have weekly practices on Mondays, and Wednesdays.  Their games were played on Thursdays and occasionally on Friday.
