Girls Golf Wins Against Westminster in Season Opener

The girls varsity golf team opened its season with a convincing 4.5-0.5 victory against Founders League rival Westminster School on Wednesday, April 12, at Hopmeadow Country Club in Simsbury, Conn.

It was an especially exciting match for the Pelicans as two golfers won their matches on the final hole, a 160-yard par three over water with a small green and a challenging pin placement.

Despite the intimidating look of the hole, juniors Hannah Lund and Ella Somberg did not back down. Somberg hit a beautiful tee shot to inside 10 feet of the hole, and Lund missed the green by just a foot and hit a beautiful second shot just inches from the hole. Both made par to give the Pelicans a big lead in the match.

It was also an exciting day for freshman Olivia Manangiello, who made her debut with the team and played extremely well in her exhibition match.

Up next, the Pelicans are on the road for another Founders League matchup, as they head to the Hotchkiss School on Saturday, April 15, to take on Bearcats on an always fun course that winds through the Hotchkiss campus.
