Girls golf defeats Wilson, showing signs of future success in league

GIRLS GOLF | The Lady Brahmas defeat the Wilson Wildcats to prepare and gain confidence for the upcoming Walnut match.

Diamond Bar girls golf team faced off against the Wilson Wildcats on Thursday at the Royal Vista Golf Course South Course. With excellent concentration and focus, the Lady Brahmas breezed past the Wildcats without a problem. The match ended with a whopping score of 195 against the Wilcats’ 289. “Getting focused is difficult in golf,” coach Tony McCabe said.

Previous to this match, DB also dominated the Wildcats at home. Riding the momentum, the Wildcats had no chance against the confident Lady Brahmas. With junior Bethany Wu, shooting 39, junior Joan Park shooting 41, sophomore Kaitleen Shee shooting 39, sophomore Josephine Chang shooting 44, senior Brooke Miller shooting 44, and senior Lynn Lee shooting 40, the Lady Brahmas had no problems getting the win.

“We beat them pretty badly the day before, Wilson has been always a good team. We played well but we can be a little better,” McCabe said.

The highlight of the match was when Chang chipped in at the 6th hole for an eagle. It was a hundred yard shot that went right in. “That’s not easy to do,” McCabe said.

More than the match itself, the Lady Brahma’s main focus was preparing for the match against crosstown rivals Walnut Mustangs that took place yesterday. These two matches against Wilson prepared Diamond Bar and boosted the team’s moral. “The Wilson match was a good win that gave the team the confidence we need to face Walnut next week. The girls played well on a narrow course,” Miller said. After the Sept. 12 match, DB has been preparing for the toughest match of the season against Walnut. The Lady Brahmas’ focus is fixated on the Walnut game, every inch of concentration and focus is for that match.

“Our big match is on Tuesday against Walnut. Getting focused for that is a big challenge. We’ve shown that over the past years our strength is that we are prepared and ready,” McCabe said.

DB’s golf team has a rich history of success and the team plans to continue this legacy. League champs and CIF champs last year, the Lady Brahma’s are working their way to success once again.

“Every girl on the team contributed to the win and we worked well together. At this rate, we should have a lot  of success and win more games,” Miller said.
