Bears wrap up golf season

DOWNEY - The Warren High School girls' golf team has just completed San Gabriel Valley League play for the 2012 season and finished with an overall record of 2-10 and a league record of 2-4.The Lady Bears recently competed in the Knabe Cup at the Lakewood Golf Course and at league finals at the Rio Hondo Golf Course. The Lady Bears' Alexandra Rooney placed third and Arika Araujo placed fourth. Both Lady Bear golfers have earned first team All-San Gabriel Valley League honors for their efforts. C.I.F. individuals were held Wednesday afternoon (scores unavailable at press time) at Recreation Park in Long Beach. Coach Schmid was also pleased at the continued improvement of Brianna Sanchez, Cydney Charvers and Min Cho. All three golfers improved their scores by at least five strokes since the beginning of the season and all three have never played competitive golf before. Schmid said that Brianna Sanchez got as low as 56, which is great for a beginner. Coach Schmid also said that "this season turned out pretty well since only one player returned from the squad last year. All players scores were used at each competition we participated in." Coach Schmid concluded by saying that Warren girls' golf is always looking for new young golfers, freshmen and sophomores, to join the team and learn to play golf. Golf is certainly a sport that many will continue to play and enjoy for the rest of their lives.
