Already considered one of Central Valley High School’s greatest golfers, female or male, sophomore Amelia Daoheung boosted her reputation this fall by earning first-team all-league honors for the second year in a row.
“From what I hear from other people, I can be a really good golfer,” a humble Daoheung said. “But I have to put a lot of time and effort into it. I have to take it more serious.”
Amelia finished fifth in the CCC’s individual standings.
She shot a 105, including a 47 on the front nine, at the conference’s end-of-year-tournament at Merced Golf & Country Club.
She qualified for Divisionals for the second consecutive season.
“This new league was way tougher than the old one,” said Daoheung, whose team competed in the Western Athletic Conference in the past. “It had so many good players. It was really intimidating. Somehow, I made it back to Divisionals. To be honest, I didn’t think I would.”
Daoheung made a name for herself her freshman year.
She was named to the WAC First Team.
She was the fifth-best player in the WAC’s individual standings.
She finished fourth (100) at the conference’s season-ending tournament.
“Every time I mess up, I think about what I did and how I can fix it,” Daoheung said. “I’m my own biggest critic. Sometimes, I overthink.”
