Hernandez Makes Grand Return in Pacific League Golf

It has been a long wait for Burbank High sophomore Kiara Hernandez to make her debut after sitting out the first part of the season following her transfer from Burroughs.

Hernandez returned Wednesday for the sixth and final Pacific League match at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena.
She shot an even-par 36 on the nine-hole course. The Bulldogs shot 214 as a team, but it was still 10 strokes short of toping league power Arcadia, who won by shooting 204.

“The greens were a little faster than I thought they would be. I was hitting my drives pretty good today. My wedges were a little off, but my putting kind of came back,” Hernandez said. “It’s a course that I know pretty well. I’ve played in quite a few tournaments here. I usually play pretty good here and I’m not surprised that I shot even par, but I know that I can always do a little bit better.”

Arcadia’s Erica Lee was the low medalist as she shot 35.

Burbank got solid efforts from Lisette Orellana and Alyssa Tran, who both shot 41. Maddie Lee shot 47, Cassie Morin-Gaona shot 49 and Kara Lee shot 50.

Burroughs was led by Abby Powell, who shot 47. Jocelyn Kim shot 50. Sadie Demmert and Skye Brauer each shot 52. Annika Lindgad shot 53 for the Indians and Isabella Alderete shot 58.
“I feel like we’ve put all that we can put out there,” Hernandez said of her team finishing behind Arcadia.

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.

Burroughs

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.

Burbank

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.”
