EAGLES COME OUT VICTORIOUS--April 10
On April 10, the Eagles played their first WSL league match, at Airways Golf Course, against Fowler, Parlier, and Riverdale. The Eagles were victorious, winning 122-58 (Fowler)-55 (Riverdale)-50 (Parlier).
The match was played in a Stableford format, unlike the usual stroke play. In Stableford, each player gets a certain amount of points for each hole, pertaining to how many strokes he hits (Eagle-8 points, Birdie-6 points, Par-4 points, Bogey-2 points, Double Bogey- 1 point, worse-0 points). As in stroke play, 5 scores are counted for each team, and senior Jeff Roseth led FC with 42 points.
Freshman Christopher Grossman enjoyed the new format and felt that the team played excellently.
"Although Airways isn't our home course, I think that the team played as good as we have all season," Grossman said. "Playing Stableford rather than stroke play was a nice change and I look forward to playing in that format again. A round like this was a great way to kick off league play."
The round was the first of five WSL league matches, but the Eagles will next play Kingsburg in a non league match at Kings River Golf Course, April 12.
