Boys Golf Wins State!

Posted by Windermere Preparatory School on Nov 01 2018 at 05:05AM PDT

The Boys Golf team is officially the 2018 State Champion! The Lakers started the season with the intention of bringing home another state championship, and the hard work and preparation through this season allowed their goal to come to fruition. The State Tournament was played over two days at Mission Inn Resort, which is one of the most difficult courses played all year. The first day did not start as the Lakers had hoped, but the resiliency of the team was on full display as everyone finished their first round strong after tough starts. The Lakers held a small lead at the conclusion of the first day, but no lead is safe on a demanding golf course like Mission Inn. The team’s inspiration before the final round came from alumni Patrick Wu, who played on the last State Championship Winning team two years ago. He reminded the team to “keep your composure out there." Tiago Barni saved his lowest round of the season for when it counted most shooting three under par 69. Artem Yalovenko birdied his final 2 holes of his high school career to shoot even par for the day and finish t8 overall individually. Danny Nguyen improved his score the most on day 2 shooting a solid round of 73. Kenny Nguyen played solid both days finishing 28th overall. Eric Berggren fittingly finished his fourth year of Varsity golf by making the winning putt for the team. This has been an incredible group of Lakers to be around this season. They all pushed each other to get better and came together as a team when it counted. Congrats to the State Champion Boys Golf Team! We thank you all for the support this season! Way to go, Lakers!
