Golf Wins Big over Elk Grove in Delta League Match

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The St. Francis golf team posted an impressive 209 to record a 67 stroke victory over Elk Grove Monday at the Haggin Oaks Arcade Creek course.

“Kate had a fantastic round,” said Head Coach Cindy Mah-Lyford. “She was playing at the No. 4 spot but did not let that bother her. Maybe it added a little fire under her. Overall, we were real consistent from top to bottom. We have so many girls that can shoot in the low 40s and that is going to be the key to our success.”
