Coach Doane provides information on girls golf: The last 18 hole tournament of the regular season was today at the California Invitational ⛳️ and each one of our girls improved on their 18 hole season best. Ava finished with another Top 20 and Ashlee keeps setting her personal best on 18 hole matches. It’s always good to continue to improve your score throughout the year. We have a few more weeks left and a few more 9 hole matches to keep improving and reach some of our goals for this season. We look forward to continuing our prep for Districts and our next match is next Wednesday at Cole Camp. GR8 job, TIGERS!
