Walnut wins CIF State girls title
RANCHO CUCAMONGA >> Walnut High School coach Cecil Woods kept telling his girls golf team that the important tournament was at Red Hill Country Club.
The Mustangs went undefeated in the regular season, but did not win a CIF Southern Section title, the CIF-SS’s all-division tournament or the CIF-WSCGA Southern California crown. But Walnut won the title it wanted the most: The CIF State title on Tuesday afternoon at Red Hill.
"It feels so good to finally be champion," sophomore Abigail Wiranatha said. "We were hoping and praying for the chance to be champions."
The Mustangs won their first state title by three strokes, edging Troy 394-397. La Serna finished fifth with a 407.
Walnut finished third in 2013 and then second last year.
"Our motto was that the first two years we went to the party and they wouldn’t let us in," Woods said. "The third year it was: Kick the door down, take the trophy and say, ‘Thank you.’ The girls did what they practiced to do all year. I am so proud of them. Read more...
