East Fall Classic Girls Golf Preview

East & West Take On Top Teams

The East Fall Golf Classic comes this weekend.
The Titan girls have played in two tournaments this year. They finished 4th in the McAllen tournament, then they finished 12th this past weekend at Concan in a large field consisting of mostly 6A schools. The East girls top five include Emma Koch, Shelby Austin, Amber Short, Adriana Jaramillo and Allison Casal.

West girls golf, led by three seniors: Leila Sutherland, Maile Sciba and Emily Bauknight. Moving up this year are juniors Emily Thigpen and Samantha Vigil, and sophomores Laney Glass and Sara Udd. The West girls played well at the regional preview in McAllen and Concan tournaments, as they hope to get back to regionals for the third straight year. I talked with four VISD girls golfers about their fall seasons.

Said Titan girls senior Shelby Austin, “It’s alright. It could be a little bit better. But this upcoming week we should make a lot of improvements and improve our game a lot. “
Said Warrior girls senior Laila Bazan, “We’ve definitely had our ups and downs. But we’re progressing and I think it’s a good thing for us this fall. “
Said Warrior girls sophomore Laney Glass, “We’ve been pretty good. We take it one shot at a time and we take it slowly individually. We just hype each other up and everyone does good no matter what.”
Said Titan girls senior Adriana Jaramillo, “For me it has been a little bit difficult. But I will hopefully pull through. The team is making better progress than they have before.”

The East Golf Fall Classic for boys and girls is Friday and Saturday at The Club At Colony Creek.
