The Girl’s Golf Season Kicks Off

The Girl’s Golf Season Kicks Off By: Jackie Louie Nine determined girls walked on the golf course this year, an unstoppable team.

Golfing With Pals at the PALs

Several golfers on the San Mateo High School Boys’ Golf Team qualified for the Peninsula Athletic League Championships, a golf tournament where any male golfers from the public high schools in the Bay Area can qualify for. This year, five team members qualified to play in the tournament. To be able to participate in the “PAL’s,” golfers have to either rank in the top forty in the Bay Area or rank in the top ten at an eighteen-hole qualifier round. Those who qualify continue on to the first day of the PAL’s. After the first day is over, the best…

Boys’ Golf Team Is On Par

The SMHS boy’s golf team has been going to several matches over the past few weeks at various golf courses around the Bay Area. The team lost to Terra Nova at Sharp Park and to Hillsdale at Peninsula, but managed to snatch two wins from Capuchino and Terra Nova at Green Hills and Poplar Creek respectively. During every match, the six SMHS golfers playing that day always line up their bags on the fringe of the course’s practice green. They then putt and warm up their swings for some time until the coaches call the players up. Each player then…

Golf Goes Clubbing

If you wish to know which fall sport is most successful at SMHS, the answer will likely be girls’ golf. Winning the PAL Champion for past two years, our fabulous golf players even made it to CCS. “Golf is a sport that requires adequate amount of skill and takes a lot of practice to get better,” said Kristin Kanaya, the shining star of girls’ golf team. Kristin currently holds a record of 94 strokes. For a beginning golf player, this record might take years of practice. To be qualified to go to CCS as a team, the team has to…

Mateo Golfers Tee Off Into CCS Together

Our boy’s golf team rose out from the lower division and became number one. In CCS, usually only select players from a golf team can qualify, but the Mateo golf team is different than the norm, as the entire team has qualified for pre-CCS and will be playing against the Bay Division which consists of nearby schools such as Aragon, Hillsdale and Burlingame. Out of eight games, they had seven wins, so they were not able to win the Ocean division, but since they  defeated the winners who they are tied with, (Sequoia), twice, so they are considered number one….

Golf prepares to qualify for CCS playoffs

Whoosh! The golf season is already halfway through and the golf spirit is coursing through the players’ veins. Although there have been some ups and downs throughout the season, many members claim that the season has only started. Senioritis keeps Shashank Sanjay in a positive mood even though the team record is 8-3. He believes that this is a decent score but it was really the “team spirit” that has taken them this far. Sure, the golf team certainly has a great run, but teams from Woodside and Hillsdale have possibly denied a spot for our school to participate in…
