Playing at the Riverwalk Golf Club, Girls Varsity Golf had an outstanding match versus Cathedral Catholic High School, a strong team in their conference, on October 8th. The match started off a bit slow, but soon the entire team started picking up speed. They eventually gained a small lead and kept it up for the rest of the match. The competition, however, stayed fierce.

Even though Cathedral played well against Point Loma and gave the Lady Pointers a challenge, it was not too much for them to handle. The Varsity team walked away with a win on Tuesday that ended with a close score of 248-239. Junior Breegan O’Hearn had this to say about the match: “In golf matches, two players from each team play in each group, so we never really know how our team has done until we've all turned in our individual scores. Our match was a close one, so we were all a little angsty while the scores were coming in.”

Furthermore, both O’Hearn and sophomore Taylor Riley elaborated on what makes golf such an enjoyable sport for them. O’Hearn later said, “Golf is an addictive game because it is so challenging. It's a very individual sport and the reason I continue to play is because I'm constantly competing with myself and always striving to improve my game.”

Riley added on by saying, “I overall enjoy golf a lot. It definitely can be boring sometimes but the challenge is what I enjoy and how I can improve my score from the time before. Golf is different every time you play.”

Additionally, Varsity team members had a decent performances at the City Conference Championship Tournament. The two best performers at this tournament were Taylor Riley and Breegan O’Hearn. Riley received a 78 and O’Hearn earned a 95, both good scores that display their amazing golf skills. Furthermore, O’Hearn remarked before City Conference began, “I'm looking forward to the City Conference this year because I'm hoping to make the cut again to move on to match play since it's not the form of golf I usually play and it's exciting to switch it up.”

Yet, even as O’Hearn just barely missed this cut, she was still rooting for her teammate, Riley, who placed as the 6th seed and moved on to the next round. We wish these Lady Pointers luck with their next steps and tournaments!
