The girls golf team drove home a decisive victory, 206–227, over Oak Knoll High School, which left seeing nothing but green.
Senior Co-Captains Kate Capodanno and Christina Gulla led the team with impressive scores of 48 and 50, respectively.
The game took place at Morris County Golf Club on a cold and rainy afternoon. The course itself posed some challenges for the two teams.
“[The course] was very hilly and had a lot of blind shots, which made playing and aiming much more difficult,” said junior Elizabeth McCabe.
“Also, because it was raining,” added McCabe, “the greens were much slower than they should have been which… made deciding on the correct amount of power to give a putt hard.”
Capodanno and Gulla was a standout player in the game, putting personal bests for the season, according to Coach Andrew Levy.
Said Gulla: “My best hole was number two because it was a hard par five, and I made par. All my shots went where I wanted them to, and I was able to one-putt into the hole.”
Consistency also played an important factor in determining the winner of game.
Added Levy: “ It has been great to win early this year and have some really close calls. The biggest problem we have is that we are constantly playing new courses we have never seen before…. We are very young as a program so we are learning all the time. “
Many players are confident about the games ahead for the team. Said Gulla: “We have won two matches so far, which is fantastic considering the level of difficulty within the conference. As far as for the rest of the season, I see us fine-tuning our skills and beating more teams. We have come so close numerous times this season that anything is possible.”
