Another CIF victory to add to DB’s golfing legacy

As the golf season comes to an end, Diamond Bar’s golf team became the Hacienda League champions for the eighth consecutive time. But it did not stop there. The Lady Brahmas showed why they were league champs many times as they became the CIF champs of the Northern Divisional Section after winning at sectionals in Ojai.

Junior co-captain Bethany Wu led the team as she shot a 67, the best score of the day. Sophomores Kaitleen Shee and Josephine Chang also showed outstanding performances, scoring 69 and 72, respectively.

With the entire teams’ effort and dedication to win, the Lady Brahmas came out on top, albeit with some difficulty. “We need to be more prepared before a game and really concentrate,” co-captain Joan Park said. They ended the match with a score of 360, beating the previous DB record for 18 holes.

“We were awesome, the girls were tremendous,” coach Tony McCabe said.

The Lady Brahmas have achieved so much during this year’s season for golf. Shee, Chang, and junior Esther Yin earned to be on the First Team All-Hacienda League team. Park and the athlete of the month of October, Brooke Miller earned honors for the second team of All-Hacienda League. Wu became the MVP for the third time in a row in the league.

“I feel that the reason we do so well is [that] we are so close as a team and bring out the best in each other” Park said.

After former co-captains Kristie Yang and Isabelle Shee received scholarships to Southern Illinois University and UC Riverside respectively, the inexperienced team is now playing to qualify for the State finals. Last Thursday, the Lady Brahmas played at the Talega Golf Course. During the qualifications, DB was against the Walnut Mustangs. However, the Lady Brahmas could not defeat the Mustangs and lost in a card-off, which is when  two teams have the same score at the end. The winner is decided by taking the lowest score card of the sixth member of each team.

Practicing to work hard to maintain their reign as the League champions, the Lady Brahmashave ended their regular season with another league and CIF title.

Now after winning back to back CIF championships, the team hopes to continue winning. The team’s next match is Thursday November 14.
