The Evanston girls golf team season is up, up, and away. The season started on Aug. 16 in a quad match at Maine West.
“The team is a little bit more driven and dedicated to getting better,” senior captain Drew Patterson said.
You could definitely see that dedication in the 215-180 defeat over Regina a few weeks ago.
One of the team’s tougher matches so far was a tournament at Antioch. The team placed seventh.
“We were expected to do really well this year, but we didn’t have one of our best players there, and the team didn’t do as well,” Patterson explained.
Last year, the team placed second in the same tournament, so this was a tough placement. Deerfield seems to be another key tournament this year. They headed up north to the Deerfield Invite on Sept. 21 for their last tournament of the season.
The team suffered another tough loss to New Trier on Aug. 28, with the final score being 131-96. New Trier has already been dominant, getting first place in the Prospect Invite on Aug. 16.
“We kind of learned from the mess that we had against them and we go out being more competitive. We lose to them but we try to win every other match,” Patterson said
The tough schedule does not end with New Trier though.
“GBS and Loyola are top competition,” Patterson said. “They took first and second in regionals last year.”
The Kits will look to wrap up the season on a high note, as they will take part in the CSL Conference Tournament on Wednesday, Oct. 2 starting at 8:30 a.m.
