Coach John Rathbun’s Ramona High varsity girls golf team finished the Valley League season with a 5-5 record as the team beat Orange Glen and lost to Del Norte in the final week of the regular season.
The Lady Bulldogs were 5-8 on the season.
Orange Glen had to forfeit the match at San Vicente Resort as it did not have enough players to make it an official match. As a gesture of sportsmanship, Rathbun let three of the Patriots' less experienced players tee off from 150 yards to give the players experience and allow them to improve.
Ramona shot 258 as a team, and Kailey Hill earned medalist honors by shooting a 45 on the par 36 front nine at San Vicente. Caitlyn Doulgeropoulos carded a 47. Three Lady Dawgs shot in the fifties: Bre Hirsh, 54; Rachel Costan, 55; and Shannon Curristan, 57. Amanda Raines shot 60.
The girls from the Valley of the Sun finished the season on the road as they fell to Del Norte High School 219-281. Hill recorded Ramona’s low score by posting a 52. Doulgeropoulos and Hirsh both carded a 53. Costan shot 56 and Courtney Keisel shot 59. Curristan carded a 61.
The Lady Dawgs play in the North County Tournament this week at Camp Pendleton and at Lake San Marcos, hoping to qualify for the CIF tournaments.
The entire team will return next year as the much improved varsity squad had no seniors competing this season.
