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.

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.

Kate Villegas of Arcadia was the low medalist, as she shot 38. She was followed by teammate Tiffany Lo, who shot 39. La Canada’s Rachel Oh and Glendale’s Elis Alaan tied for third, each shooting 41.

Burroughs was led by junior Gabija Petrulis, who shot 44. Senior Malia Suarez shot 49. Junior Abbie Riggs and sophomore Jocelyn Kim each shot 50 and senior Alissa Jaramillo shot 51.

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.
