She did not even need to have her team’s best round in the season’s five important tournaments. But what the senior had to do was persistently be consistent. Her play helped the Mustangs earn their first CIF State championship and earned her San Gabriel Valley Tribune Golfer of the Year honors.
“I’m really happy to go out with a bang,” she said. “It’s my last high school golf tournament. We made it here and we won.” Read more...
