Big Blue Beat: Girls' Varsity Golf

By Zara Jacob '21


Head Coach: Robert Mauer

Last season's highlights: 
Coming off a record-breaking 2017-18 season (17-0), sole senior and captain Christine Shao '19—now playing for Columbia University—led a team of just eight girls in an extremely successful, 11-5, run. Highlights include winning the Skyland Conference and Somerset County Championships, and finishing fourth place in the NJSIAA Tournament of Champions. 

What to watch for this season: 

  • Led by captains Zara Jacob '21 and Ashley Lu '20, the team will seek to continue their impressive team record and defend their titles. 

  • Unlike the past few years, where only one or two freshmen have joined the team, a spike in interest means that the team welcomes six new players this season from the Class of 2023. 

  • Alexandra Ouzounian '23 and Ann-Sophie Kraemer '23 will be two incoming freshmen to look out for this year as they have participated in the NJPGA junior golf tours. 

  • Beginning his sixth season as Head Coach, Coach Mauer is looking to focus on the fundamentals of the short game including putting, chipping, and pitching.

Full-court press: 
"I always say to keep looking forward, and focus on the now—that is what I hope to impress upon the team as we continue to build upon our past successes."—Head Coach Mauer
