Sophomores Sophia Gwin and Maddy Madrigal placed third and fourth respectively for the Tigers with scores of 42 and 46. Sophomores Maddie Kim and Chloe Kwon closed out the Tiger’s lineup with scores of 48 and 52.

The team plans to add to their two-game streak and continue to find success on the course. 

I think that we are heading in the right direction in terms of progress,” Yamagata said. We just shot our lowest overall score of the season against La Cañada and I hope it’s the start of a great awakening for the girls to try their ultimate best to succeed.” 

The Tigers look forward to their upcoming match at the Alhambra Golf Course against league rivals San Marino Titans on Tuesday, Oct. 4.
