Mustangs finish first and second at state
After an exhausting round at Poppy Hills, Walnut girls Mustangs lost the first place trophy by three strokes to the other Mira Costa Mustangs. But with such a young team, they're sure to be back next year in an attempt to capture their first state title. Despite their second place finish, the team won its second straight Eastern Division CIF section title and its second straight Southern Section team title. The team will take the rest of the week off and start practicing next Monday for next year's championship. Don't be late, girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Walnut girls golf team will attempt to qualify for the state championship on Thursday at Goose Creek Golf Course in Corona. Senior Allison Chang, Junior Annabelle Chang, and Catherine Yu sophomores Katherine Muzi, and Trussy Li along with freshman Abigail Wiranatha will do their best to lead Walnut back to the State Championship for the second time in three years. Only the top three teams will qualify to go to Pebble Beach. They will be playing against the top two teams from San Diego, the top three teams from LA City, and the top three teams from the Fresno area along with San Marino High School, Palm Desert High School, and Mira Costa High School. If the team continues to play the way they did, when they won the CIF Championship and the Southern Section Championship, they will have a very good chance to qualify.

Repeat CIF Champions
Congratulations to the Walnut girls' golf team as they won their second consecutive CIF championship yesterday (11/2/2015) at Jurupa Hills. The team was led by Princeton bound senior Alison Chang's one-under par 70, followed by league champion sophomore Katherine Muzi's 71 and sophomore Trussy Li's 71. The team seems to be rounding into shape just at the right time. On Thursday, they will play at Western Hills Country Club in the first round of the state qualifying. Of the 21 teams that were there, Walnut was the only team that had all its players shoot in the 70s; Keisha Lugito 75, Anabelle Chang and Abigail Wiranatha 77. If they continue to play like they did today, they should be able to advance to the next stage. They will face off against the 12 best teams in the southern section, with the top four advancing to the final stage of state qualifying at Goose Creek on Thursday, November 12.
