Burroughs finished second in the team standings, shooting 228. Arcadia won by shooting 213. Burbank High was third shooting 254, followed by Crescenta Valley, which shot 255. Glendale High also participated but did not figure into the scoring since it had only four golfers and five are needed for a team to generate a team score.

Burbank’s High Madison Lee shot 41, which tied for the second best of the day with Tiffany Lo of Arcadia and Vienna Bebla of Crescenta Valley.

Burroughs, Burbank Looking to Shine in Girls Golf

It will be a mix of youth and experience for the Burroughs and Burbank High girls’ golf teams this season. Burroughs has been solid the last few seasons and could be better. Burbank is still young and looking to improve in the tough Pacific League.

League play begins Tuesday with a match at Altadena Golf Course.

The Indians return the senior duo of Gabija Petrulis and Abbie Riggs. However, freshman Kiara Hernandez might actually lead the team and has a strong chance of making it to CIF according to coach Greg Everhart.

Junior Jocelyn Kim and sophomore Sadie Demmert also figure to be in the mix.

Sadie Demmert of Burroughs works on her putting skills.

Depth will come from junior Abby Powell, sophomores Nadaly Jones and Leila Forrester and freshmen Isabelle Aldrete and Sophia Olin.

“As a team, our goal is to get our scores down,” Jones said. “We need to be focused on the course.”

Jones said she has been impressed with Hernandez.

“She’s focused and very determined. She knows her stuff,” she added.

The Bulldogs should be led by sophomore Madison Lee.  Fellow sophomores Kara Lee and Regina Ramos as well as junior Cassie Morin all return from a season ago.

Sophomore Elen Badalyan and freshman Alicia Cho are the top newcomers to the squad.

“We practiced and worked hard all summer and are looking forward to having a successful season,” coach Branko Sevic said. “With our returning experience from last year, this should help us this season. We are still a young team and are looking to build success in all our matches.”

Burroughs Takes Third, Burbank Fifth in Pacific League Golf Match

Burroughs High senior Annie Adachi is no different than most golfers in that she has seen better days on the course.

Generally the Indians top player, Adachi was little off her game Wednesday in Pacific League match No. 2 at Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena Wednesday.

“Today, I was dealing with my mental golf aspects,” Adachi said. “I definitely could have played a lot better. I was trying to trust my swing and my mechanics more.”

Adachi shot 48 on the par-37 course No. 1.

Arcadia High won the team competition by shooting 209. La Canada High was second with 232, follow by Burroughs at 241, Crescenta Valley at 249 and Burbank at 267.

Burbank High was led by Amy Tran, its lone senior.

Tran shot 44.

“A few holes were a little narrow,” Tran said. “Overall, it wasn’t that bad. I don’t think the wind affected my game that much.”

Burbank junior Olga Marie Davis shot 49.

Burbank High’s Amy Tran puts the ball.

Freshman Madison Lee shot 53. Fellow freshmen Kara Lee and Regina Ramos shot 60 and 61, respectively.

Sophomore Cassie Morin shot 61 for the Bulldogs.

 

Burroughs, Burbank Girls’ Golf Show Improvement at DeBell

Everyone likes to call some place home.

DeBell Golf Course is that natural place to Burbank and Burroughs highs.

Wednesday in the fourth Pacific League golf match of the season, Burroughs narrowed the gap toward the top of the league standings and Burbank showed great improvement.

San Marino High finished first scoring 203, followed by Arcadia with 208, Burroughs with 214, Crescenta Valley 231, Burbank with 270 and La Canada with 280.

“This course is like our second home,” Burroughs’ Ashley Phelps said. “Playing at home we should do better, but there is a lot of pressure.”

Certainly it couldn’t have been easy for Burroughs after playing a practice round with Crescenta Valley on the same course on Monday.

Coach Greg Everhart said his team shot 202 in that practice match.

“It’s unfortunate they didn’t shoot the same as Monday,” Everhart said. “Our goal is to keep pushing so they have the confidence to play their best when it really counts.”

Burbank High Branko Sevic said his team finished out of the league cellar for the first time in three years.

Arcadia freshman Katie Villegas was the low medalist, shooting a one-under par 36.

Burroughs showed consistency in staying close.

Maddie Riggs and Annie Adachi each shot 42. Phelps and Gabija Petrulis each shot 43 and Raelin Arnold shot 44. Bella Nava shot 47.

Burbank was led by Amy Tran, who shot 43. Olga Marie Davis shot 46. Pawee Akkharachotmongkhol shot 57, Cassie Vargas shot 60 and Erin Tanner shot 64.

 

Burbank, Burroughs Girls’ Golf Face Tough Challenge

If competing in a tough Pacific League wasn’t enough, the Burbank and Burroughs high girls’ golf teams also had to face a challenging course Wednesday afternoon.

Competing in the third league match of the season, the teams competed at La Canada Country Club.

Like the first two league encounters, Burroughs finished in third in the standings and Burbank finished sixth.

Arcadia took first by shooting 189. Defending CIF Southern Section Northern Division champion San Marino finished second with 199. Burroughs shot 218, Crescenta Valley 227, La Canada 265 and Burbank 276.

Elizabeth Wang of San Marino was the low medalist shooting 35 on the Par-34 course.

“This course was definitely a little more challenging than others, especially for walking,” Burroughs Ashley Phelps said. “The greens were tough for everybody. Overall I wasn’t super happy with my round but I can’t complain because there’s a couple of things that happened that you can’t control. I’m happy overall with how the team did. We’re still shooting low scores.”

 

Phelps shot 40 to lead Burroughs. Maddie Riggs and Gabija Petrulis each shot 44. Raelinn Arnold and Annie Adachi each shot 45. Abbie Riggs shot 50.

Burbank was led by Amy Tran, who shot 44.

Also for Burbank, Olga Marie Davis shot 51, Pawee Akkharachotmongkhol shot 57, Erin Tanner 61 and Cassie Morin 63.
