Junior Lila Iwanowski placed fifth at the Cape Coast Conference meet.

Juniors Lila Iwanowski and Abigail Watson and placed fifth and 11th individually, shooting 39 and 49 respectively to lead the girls’ golf team to fifth place out of 11 at the Cape Coast Conference on Wednesday at the Indian River Preserve.

The girls said they felt good about their season so far, but the addition of several new players has posed a challenge for the team.

“We have a lot of younger players that are not as experienced, so that’s been a challenge for us this year, especially because we lost some good seniors last year,” Watson said.

Last year the team was the runner-up for the Cape Coast Conference. 

“Hopefully, getting the younger players experience for playing these tough matches will help us for next year,” Watson said.

The team has also been trying to help the new members fit in and perform better.

“Whenever I can make it to practice, I’ll help them by giving them advice,” Iwanowski said. “But other than that, they all seem to be doing pretty well, and they all have their own clubs, so they just go out there and practice.”

The team is preparing for the upcoming district matches. 

“We have a few matches before districts, and we’re hoping to put up a good score for district,” Watson said. “We’re just trying to finish this season strong.”
