Golf Girls: Putt-ing in the work

MC’s Golf Girls have been hard at work this season. Though they haven’t won any matches so far, they are getting stronger and closer as a team.
“Our practices have gone well and the girls are feeling better about their game,” coach Jim Greci said, “ They are doing better in learning all the nuances of getting around the golf course.”
The girls have learned, and are on their way to perfecting, the rules of high school golf.
Team members play in groups of two while one member of the team plays, the other keeps score. At the end of the match, the scores of all the pairs are added up and the team with the lowest score wins.
The girls have faced off against Westview, Torrey Pines, Poway and Rancho Bernardo. The girls on these teams provide tough competition since they have a lot of experience.
“We are probably in the toughest golf league in San Diego,” Greci said.
According to junior and captain Savannah Wallace, the team is getting stronger and the new additions to the team have proved their worth.
“As far as playing goes, everyone is improving a lot […], but it’s hard competing against experienced schools […] with the majority of our girls having never played before this season,” Wallace said.
Calista Caballero, a junior, is a new member of the MC golf team and has enjoyed her golfing experience so far.
“Golf is swell,” Caballero said, “ It’s hard, though, because the competition is so … competitive.”
Team bonding has played a huge role in keeping the girls positive through their losses.
“Our team chemistry is really forming, we’re all really bonding,” Wallace said.
The team hopes to have more success in winning matches and improve as a whole every day.
“Every girl has had great successes on the course, and we hope that it will continue for our last seven matches of the season,” said Greci.
MC Golf has their next match on Oct. 15 against Torrey Pines.
