The boys golf team took second place in the CCS finals last week, with Dakota McNealy, grade 12, leading the way for the Eagles as he finished tied for fifth overall. The top three CCS teams moved on to the NorCal Championships at Corral De Tierra Country Club this past Monday, where the Eagles continued their impressive run as they placed third to qualify for the state tournament to be held Wednesday at San Gabriel Country Club in Southern California. Ryan Vaughan, grade 11, led the Eagles, shooting a 1-over-par.
Katherine Zhu, grade 10, played at the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Tournament in Florida this past week. After two days of stroke play, Katherine and her partner shot an 8-under-par, earning the No. 3 ranking out of 64 teams from around the world. We will bring you results of her play on Monday as soon as they come in.
