Golf: CHS Girls First Loss, Then a Win

After starting the season with five wins, the Girls’ Varsity Golf team suffered their first loss of the season against Rancho Bernardo High School on RB’s home course. The Bernardo Heights Country Club is known to have a tight-driving course, which gave the Islanders trouble in driving the ball to the greens. Junior Crista Izuzquiza, however, bested the course and shot one-under par, with a score of 35 strokes. “This was her first match of the season and has put her in the top individual position of all girls in the San Diego Section,” comments Coach Gordon. The final score was 254-204, with Rancho Bernardo winning.

On Thursday, the Islanders hosted Poway High School and added another win to their record. Once again, Izuzquiza was named Medalist of the Match, shooting a total of 38 strokes. Senior Sabrina Ladd shot second best, with 43 strokes, followed by sophomore Annie Holland, with 46 strokes. After tallying up the scores, Coronado led by a significant margin, winning 232-260.
