Lady Eagles Golfers Victorious in Season's First Tourney
The Savio Lady Eagles golfers won the Regents Invitational on Monday, notching their first victory of the season in their first start. The Lady Eagles are hopeful that the win at south Austin's Jimmy Clay Golf Course will propel them to an exciting and successful year, but they do not want to get ahead of themselves. "It's definitely a great way to start the season, but we are going to take each tournament one at a time," said Coach Jameson, before adding, "and we hope the boys will start following in their footsteps."
Despite a lack of much practice due to a stormy week prior to the tournament, sophomore Andrea Rodriguez played well and earned an 8th-place medalist honor, while freshman Vera Yi took 3rd-place honors in her impressive Savio tournament debut. Yi shot 79, leaving her only 2 shots out of the 1st-place medalist spot. Both the boys' and the girls' teams are looking forward to improving as the season develops, but will savor the girls' victory for the moment.
