On Sept. 25, the Lady Vikings took on Point Loma High School at Torrey Pines Golf Course, winning by a tight 26 strokes. The five lowest scores combined gave the Vikings a 218 finish, led by lowest scorer/medalist Madeleine Garay at 42, followed by Erin Szabo at 43. Coach Aaron Quesnell reported the entire team was within four shots of each other.

The next day, the Lady Vikings beat our Lady of Peace (OLP), finishing nearly 40 strokes under their opponents. La Jolla High finished at 204 and was led by dual-medalists Waverly Whiston and Manci rasmussen at 37 each. Madeleine Garay followed at 40.

“The Lady Vikes cruised to victory at riverwalk against our rival, OLP,” Quesnell said of the Sept. 26 victory. “It’s always tough to have matches in back-to-back days, but the girls handled it well.”

The streak continued on Sept. 30 against Christian High School (based in El Cajon), when medalist erin Szabo, at 46, led the Lady Vikings to a 280 total, a whopping 59 strokes under their opponent. Maya Friessen followed Szabo at 53.

October started off similar to how September ended. On Oct. 1, the Vikings took on Scripps Ranch High School, winning at 211 to Scripps’ 238. Waverly Whiston medaled at 32, followed by Madeleine Garay at 42.

On Oct. 10, the lady Vikings narrowly beat Cathedral Catholic High School, winning just 11 strokes under their opponent. The medalist was actually CCHS’s Jacqueline Garcia at 41. However, the win belongs to LJHS, maintaining the league- wide winning streak.
