Cool, breezy day for golf at Springbrook – where Naperville Central squares off with Waubonsie Valley. First home dual of the year for the Warriors. The Redhawks boast a whopping six seniors on the team.
One of those seniors is Becki Zhang – who crushes a tee shot on the first hole en route to opening her round with a par.
To the second hole and Waubonsie’s Grace Angelides is just of the green… and decides to roll the ball…. (PAUSE)… all the way to the cup. The junior taps in for a 5 on the long par 5.
Same hole and Central’s Neha Vinesh is taking aim at the pin… her approach shot lands on the front of the green. She also would sink her par putt.
To the fourth hole… the 125 yard par 3. Emily Skowronski finds the perfect club, uses the fade, and feathers the ball in there, leading to a par.
Vinesh also finding the dance floor – and she’s close enough to the music to convert the par – she’s Centrals top scorer with a 38.
Fifth hole now… another par 5. Skowronski’s chip is a beauty. The senior is 3 over walking up to the 5th green.
Her teammate, Angelides, measures up a long putt for birdie… and JUST lips it out. Settling for par.
Skowronski going for par… and she sinks it thanks to the friendly roll. Big par for the Warrior.
To the 7th green, Central’s Emma Lim finding herself a ways away from the cup on the par three… but she puts some good pace on it, and that allows the senior to par.
7th hole – a 134 yard par three and check out this shot from Bella Russo. She almost holes out from the tee box! Misses by INCHES.
To the green, and with Russo looking on, Aisha Iyengar nearly chips it in. Russo birdies, Iyengar saves a par.
Ninth hole now and Skowronski takes a fairway wood to the elevated green and lands it softly. She finishes with a 43. Waubonsie and Central TIE… but the 5th card tie breaker belongs to the Naperville Central, who take the win.
