Central Valley’s varsity girls golf program failed to post a team score along with Patterson at the Central California Conference Mid-Season Tournament on Sept. 18 at Dryden Park in Modesto.
The Hawks’ lineup featured just four players.
A total of five are required to compete as a team.
“We knew going into the tournament we’d be shorthanded,” Central Valley standout Amelia Daoheung said. “We’re not discouraged from it. It’s out of our control. We’re just out here to have a good time.”
Daoheung shot a 29-over-par 101 en route to a top-five finish in the individual standings.
Sylvia Villegas (135), Esmeralda Lopez (145) and Katherine Nou (145) also represented the Hawks at the CCC Mid-Season Tournament.
“If I made more putts, I would have won the whole thing. I’m still happy. That’s the best I’ve done so far on that course in this league."Central Valley standout Amelia Daoheung
“If I made more putts, I would have won the whole thing,” Amelia said. “I’m still happy. That’s the best I’ve done so far on that course in this league. It helped me gain a little more confidence in myself.”
Daoheung was the fifth-best player in the Western Athletic Conference last fall.
“Going into a new league has been very challenging,” she said. “Seeing how the other top girls perform is intimidating. But it’s good for me because it makes me want to improve. I feel like I have.”
Buhach Colony’s Caitlin Garcia (97) earned low-medalist honors at the CCC Mid-Season Tournament.
Merced (527), Buhach Colony (567), Atwater (589), El Capitan (614) and Golden Valley (679) finished first, second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively, in the team standings.
