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.
"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
