Girls Golf’s Groundbreaking Season

Aliso Niguel’s Girls Golf finished their regular season strong, leaving undefeated in their South Coast league. The team competed in their last league game on Oct. 14 against the San Clemente Tritons at Bella Collina Country Club, winning 213-219. 

Earlier this season, the girls faced Mission Viejo High School, Jserra, Corona Del Mar High School, Tesoro, Dana Hills High School and Arroyo Trubuco, leaving all games victorious.

When asked about how the team as a whole met or exceeded their goals going into the season, Coach Paul Biggs responded that they “certainty met [his] expectations-and exceeded in that going undefeated in league is a big challenge.”

Moving up to division one this year, the girls are in for a challenge as they advance to CIF taking place on Nov. 2. In the one day tournament against several other talented teams, Biggs expects the girls will need to beat their average in order to advance.

Describing the girls, Biggs reflects on how Aliso is “a very consistent team, but the lowest we’re not the lowest scoring team.” 

The team’s captains, Ashley Chan as well as Malia Matsurra, a consistent player who has been on Aliso Niguel’s Girls Varsity team for three years now. Their best player, however, is Victoria Wang, a freshman who is considered to be one of the best in Orange County by Coach Biggs.

Recapping on their action-filled season, second year golfer, Anna Ferraro (10) shares, “It was fun. It was a good experience.” 

Teammate Alexa Cole (10) agrees, describing, “The season was really fun. I played more schools than last year’s season which was better because I got to meet new people.” Looking ahead, Amelia Giler (10) adds “I can’t wait to continue playing for the rest of high school, possibly in college, and in life.”

Overall, the team had a phenomenal season, improving their skills, scoring low, and making memories.
