Girls Junior Varsity Golf, Girls Varsity Golf · GIRLS GOLF GETS IN A GOOD WEEK

RIVERSIDE:  If you run into any of the ladies who play golf for King and find them smiling, you’ll have an idea as to why.

This was a very good week for them.

On Monday, they hosted the King Invitational and were led by Morgan Sjoerdsma’s 84 round over 18 holes which led the squad to a third place showing in the tourney.

Tuesday, the team opened up Big 8 League play against the Sharks of Santiago … a school and a match that may likely determine the league champion of 2016.  King won with a score of 220-233 (low score wins).  Sjoerdsma once again set the pace carding a score of 40 over 9 holes.  She was followed closely by her sister Chandler Sjoerdsma, who shot a 43.  Chandler is only a 9th grader, so she’s off to a great start!

Rebecca Hawes also dropped in a low 43 to the team total.

“It was a good, solid showing for King” said Head Coach Keith Moorman.  “The most exciting thing about the outcome is the fact that the team can go a lot lower.  Every player can easily shave several strokes from their totals.”

Eleanor Roosevelt was the match on Thursday and while in a rebuilding phase of their program with a lot of new golfers on their roster, King had an easier path to victory to improve to 2-0 in league.  In match play, the Wolves are 4-1.

In that match against Roosevelt, Lauryn Larraga led all scores with a 40.  “She’s our player of the week”  Moorman commented.  “Her strong leadership and team-first attitude, coupled with her consistent scoring this week made her an easy choice.”

Not a bad week, not bad at all. Smiles all around.
