The Reedley College Tigers played at the 10th annual North-South Invitational, a 36-hole event hosted by Santa Barbara City College. The opening round was held on Sunday morning at Morro Bay Golf Course, and the Tigers posted a good round of 343. After Day 1 the Tigers were in 5th place out of 16 teams from both northern and southern California. Freshman Maddie Caesar led the way with a round of 81. Serena DiMauro shot a round of 83, Lauren Costa posted a round of 88, and Carley Lindlahr carded a round of 91. The Tigers felt that they let some opportunities get away on the day, but were pleased with their ball striking. The putting is what let the Tigers down a bit. The early morning 2nd and final round was solid as the Tigers played consistent golf. Reedley posted a team total of 340, 3 shots better than Round #1, but unfortunately did not improve their overall team standings from Day 1. The Tigers had the 5th best score on the day for the 2nd consecutive round. Serena DiMauro paced the Tigers with a nice round of 79. Maddie Caesar shot an 84, Carley Lindlahr posted her best round of the year with an 86. Lauren Costa shot a 91 to round out the scoring for Reedley College. The Tigers finished the tournament with a team total of 683, which placed them in 5th place overall. The Tigers' finish was one of the best ever for the program at this event, and Reedley was also the 2nd best Northern California team in the tournament. On an Individual note, Freshman Serena DiMauro was the best player for the Tigers by shooting a 162 (83-79) for the 2 rounds. Overall, it was a good way to spend the weekend on the Central Coast, and try to learn as much about the Morro Bay Golf Course as possible for a return to the State Tournament in November! The Tigers look forward to their next conference match at Buena Vista Golf Course in Taft on Thursday. A shotgun start is scheduled for 12:00 noon for C.V.C. Tournament #6.
