5th Annual Helen Lengfeld Memorial HS Golf Tournament
Poplar Creek Golf Course
Congratulations to the Eagles for taking second place, the best finish ever for Harker, at the Helen Lengfeld Tournament at Poplar Creek Golf Course yesterday. Junior sensation Natalie Vo rides her sweet 16th birthday wish by tying for 1st place with a remarkable 5 under par 66. Freshman phenom Claire Chen overcame a first hole double bogey finish 2 under par 69 to come in fourth place individually. The Eagles beat recent rival Valley Christian but lost to two time defending CCS champion Palo Alto, who shot an outstanding 4 under par as a team. We have work to do if we are to become CCS Champs. Senior Katelyn Vo remains steady at 2 over par 73. Tina Xu 78. Jessica Zhou 82. Olivia Guo 83.
On the last match of a brutal week, the Harker Girls Golf team regrouped after a mediocre performance to shoot the lowest team score in school history. The Eagles carded three under par as a team, beating Notre Dame San Jose 177-235 at San Jose Muni on another very hot day. The golfers putting heated up with freshman Claire Chen draining a 25 foot eagle putt on the ninth hole to come in at four under par 32, tying teammate Natalie Vo's best score last year. Not to be outdone, sophomore Tina Xu came in a 2 under par 34, Katelyn Vo's 36 and freshman Jessica Zhou's career best par 36.
