Last Tuesday, the girls’ golf team played their first match of the Western League, one of the strongest leagues in the county.

Crista Izuzquiza had quite a memorable 9th-hole drive, being only an inch away from hitting a hole-in-one. The final score was 228 strokes for Coronado to 235, giving Coronado the first victory of the Western League season.
