The boys’ varsity golf team suffered a loss in its season opener by a score of 214-245 against Polytechnic high school at the Brookside Golf course on Tuesday, March 1. The Tigers begin the season with a record of 0-1.
The Brookside Golf Course is known to be a tough course with tight fairways and small greens, giving the Tigers a good challenge for its first game of the season.
Newly acquired freshman Josh Ramos showed promise with a solid 37 stroke count to lead the Tigers against the Polytechnic Panthers. Juniors Andrew Son and Matthew Wright followed with a 47 and 49, respectively. Sophomore Brandon Zhu finished with a 52. Sophomore Joaquin Fromm and junior Elliott Lee finished the day with a 60 each.
“Today was our first match so everyone was pretty nervous and not playing to their best ability and the course was fairly difficult. But in our next match, however, we will be better prepared and perform better than we did today.” Son said.
The Tigers are slated to play on Thursday, March 3 against Azusa High School in an effort to try to improve its record and also prepare for its first league game on March 24.
