Girls Golf

The girls golf team had a successful day yesterday in the FVC golf invite at Crystal Woods.  The team fired a score of 404 which was 37 strokes better than last year.  Players made huge improvements in one year as Sydney Marcuccilli improved 29 strokes to shoot 111, Alyssa Tirado improved 24 strokes to shoot a 114, Delaney Marcuccili improved 10 strokes as she carded a 95, Gianna Farinella improved 21 strokes to fire a 95.  Rounding out the scoring for the whips were Jade Swanson’s 108 and Grace Fuller’s personal best score of 106.  We defeated Dundee Crown for our 6th victory this season compared to no victories last year.  Gianna and Delaney were only 2 strokes off of making all conference honors as sophomores.  We hope to carry this momentum into our regional tournament next week as we travel to sycamore.
