Scoring for the Panthers was Angela Eugene with a 49, Uniese Carrilo with 54, Aunika Marquez with 54, Gemma Gasco with 57 and Catherine Entenman with 63.
“We had an outstanding outing today,” PHS head coach David Herrera said. “All of the girls played well today. Angela broke 50 today which is a big milestone. I’m proud of Angela’s work ethic and happiness on the course. Also Uniese, Aunika and Gemma shooting in the 50s is a great accomplishment. I enjoy seeing all of their hard work over the years paying off in their scores.
“The team this year has a lot of depth,” Herrera said. “I have two girls that have shot in the 40s, four girls that have shot in the 50s and two more girls that are ready to shoot in the 50s. It’s nice to have a team full of talented athletes that work hard and keep improving.”
