In the last week of the season, the Matadors honored its seniors- 4 year starter and Team Captain Tiffany Chen and 3 year veteran starter Makayla Reid. Makayla started every match this season and contributed solid scoring throughout. But it is her constant positivity and knowledge of the game that has made her a great mentor to our developing players. Tiffany joined the team as a starting freshman. Her consistently high level of play has earned her multiple medalist honors. She has qualified for post-season play in league finals and/or CCS finals all four years. Her focus and team spirit sets the tone for the entire Matador squad. Great job Tiffany and Makayla!
The Matadors completed their league play in the SCVAL De Anza division this week with two home matches at Sunnyvale Muni. While posting losses to Palo Alto and Los Gatos, the Matadors played some of their best golf of the season. In the final match of the year vs. Los Gatos, Matador scores were led by strong showings from Sonny Yiu, Kate Yiu, and Tiff Chen who shot 38, 40, and 42 respectively. Makayla Reid posted a 49, whle Rachana Ajjarapu and Somya Shah turned in scores of 53 and 56. Los Gatos’ Elizabeth Lu fired a 33, 2-under par to take medalist honors.
The Matadors look forward to having several players participate in League finals at Santa Teresa GC next week.
