The Ramona High School girls golf team ended its season by finishing fourth in the Valley League golf finals at Twin Oaks Golf Club in San Marcos. The Lady Dawgs shot 1,014 in the two-day, 36-hole event.
High school golfers usually play nine-hole matches. In the league finals they shoot 18 holes. On day one, only one Lady Bulldog broke 100. Caitlyn Doulgeropoulos carded a 98. Cheyenne Hawkin fired a 101, while Bre Hirsh was one stroke behind with a 102. Shannon Curristan carded a 106, and Amanda Raines shot 111.
Coach John Rathbun challenged his team to do better in the second day of the tourney and they responded.
“Congratulations on your performance during the two-day tournament. I was very proud of your accomplishments towards our goal for the second day,” Rathbun wrote in an e-mail to his team.
The Lady Dawgs shaved 22 strokes off their first day total. Doulgeropoulos shot 12 strokes lower by carding an 86. Hawkin dropped from 101 to 97. Hirsh dropped nine strokes to a 93, Rachel Costan shot 104, and Curristan recorded a 116.
