UPDATE: Freshman Katherine Zhu played a phenomenal golf game, shooting 3 under 69, to take second place in the CCS Championships. That is the best finish by any Harker golfer, male or female, in history. On the par 3 sixth hole, her tee shot found some branches on the right, but she was able to make an incredible up and down in a sloping green. That set the tone for the day, as Zhu played smart and relaxed golf. She had a hot streak of 3 birdies on 12, 13 and 15. Zhu advances to Norcals Monday at Salinas Country Club. Let’s wish her the best of luck as she represents Harker on the golf course. If there was every any doubt, hard work pays off. Congratulations K-Zhu!
