The middle school golf team took first place this week at the WBAL Spring Golf Tournament, beating out six other teams. With a top four average of 37.25, the Harker golfers edged out second place Nueva by a 4-stroke margin. Marcus Page, grade 6, placed first among all golfers shooting a 2-under-par 32, winning by 2 strokes. Katelyn Vo, grade 8, Natalie Vo, grade 7, and Bowen Yin, grade 7, each shot 39 to tie for sixth place.
Harker had five of the top 13 golfers in the field of 48 middle schoolers. In addition, for the first time in Harker history, three girls made the team of eight. “I am extremely proud of this group,” said coach Ie-Chen Cheng. “You can see it in their eyes, they wanted to bring the trophy back to Harker. After close losses at the past couple tournaments, their hard work really has paid off.”
Varsity Takes League Title
The boys varsity golf team also had a good week as it clinched its third consecutive league title. It was also the team’s second straight undefeated season, stretching its league winning streak to 22 matches! It is an extremely deep team with different golfers often leading the way during match play. Harker’s quest for a CCS title starts on May 10.
