GLF: SBHS newbies drop first match

Santa Barbara High fielded five new golfers in a 256-326 season-opening loss to Rio Mesa at Sterling Hills Golf Course in Camarillo on Tuesday.

“For the new golfers, it was humbling and exciting to finish 9 holes and have a score to improve upon,” said Dons coach Ryan Throop. “There are two freshmen and five sophomores on the team. Five golfers graduated last year so this year’s team has just taken up the game.”

Grace Stephenson of Rio Mesa was the match medalist with a 42.

Santa Barbara scores:
Jade Allmon 55
Riley Bigger 66
Bridget Gerlach 68
