Girls golf had only one match last week but it was a big one. Coach John Rathbun’s Lady Dawgs beat Mission Hills on the road at Twin Oaks Country Club 247-311.
“We stumbled a bit but we still scored our lowest team score of the year,” Rathbun said of the Sept. 5 match. “That really tells me that our team consistency is getting better each week. Cheyenne (Hockin) came through and shot her career low round, a 49. Great job!”
When Rathbun talked about team consistency, he may have had the grouping of his team’s scores in mind. Kailey Hill led Ramona with a 46. Caitlyn Doulgeropoulos was one stroke behind, carding a 47. Hockin followed with her PR 49. Rachel Costan shot 51 and Amanda Raines fired a 54. Bre Hirsh added a 59.
Hirsh, a senior, has played three sports at Ramona High School in an age of single sport athletes. She played volleyball her frosh and sophomore years. She will enter her fourth year of softball and her second varsity campaign. She started playing golf her junior year.
“I played some with my dad (Jeff) but just for fun and not competitively,” she said.
Hirsh made the squad as a junior and earned a letter. She is a 3.6 student who plans to study nursing at Azusa Pacific. She plans to make golf a lifelong endeavor, but not competitively, she said.
A competitive individual, she said being on the golf team is a lot of fun.
“We have Golf Pride,” she said.
