‘“Due to some unusual circumstances, the golfers on both teams were asked to adapt to some extra challenges on the course,” Coach Dan Choi told the News-Press in an email. “At the last minute we needed to change to the back nine, which both teams were unfamiliar with, and due to a late start, we were racing the sun to finish the match.
“The athletes on both teams approached all the last-minute changes with great attitudes and did their best to have a fun and competitive match,” Choi said. “The Santa Barbara girls golf program has always been a class act and reinforced that very much today (Thursday).
“I was very proud of how my golfers managed to perform on the course today against a good team and some unfamiliar holes,” the coach continued. “One of our team’s goals has been to play better at unfamiliar courses, so in a way we got to do that at our home course. The match was called for the last group after seven holes due to darkness.”
