When asked about how she played in the match, she replied with, “I’m pretty happy with my performance. I had a couple difficult holes, but a few great holes as well.”

Audrey Yoong ‘26 also performed well with a score of 42 which put her at six over par.

Behind Singleton and Yoong, Bella Baum ‘26 shot within her range to produce a score of 57, Phoebe Hopps ‘26 shot a 59 and Kylie Ho ‘26 finished the match with a score of 70. These added up to a total of 266 which would not suffice against Camarillo who hit a lower score of 229.

Baum reflected on the team’s performance, stating, “We all did good in our own ways but … we all have room for improvement.”

When asked about the consequences of the loss, Singleton explained that, “Because it wasn’t a league meet, it will not affect our standing in the league.” She further commented that, “it was a good opportunity to play against an experienced team.”

Baum agreed with Singleton as she reflected that, “It was more of a practice match … I believe it is always good to get out on the course to practice.”

Their next match will be against St. Bonaventure on Oct. 12, 2023, at Olivas Links where Foothill Tech seeks to get back on their winning streak.
