Meet Rachel Oh, the sophomore captain of La Cañada High School’s Girls’ Varsity golf team.
At a tournament at the end September, Rachel shot three under 34 at the fifth match in league, individually beating rivals San Marino and Arcadia. She placed first in the tournament at the Santa Anita Golf Course, finishing two points in front of San Marino’s Bella Setio.
Rachel, who started golfing when she was six years old, said that her goals for the future include going to college and, if possible, becoming a professional golfer.
Rachel claims to owe much of her success to her teammates and her friends, who motivate and push her to be the best.
As team captain of a well oiled golfing machine, Rachel said she is responsible for guiding her teammates and making sure their schedules all work out.
She hopes that the Lady Spartans can “work better as a team, motivate each other, and practice hard.”
The team placed fourth overall in the tournament, improving upon the previous tournament, in which they ended up fifth.
Despite the improvements, Rachel said, “We can get better if we try a little harder. I believe that if we motivate each other and practice hard that we will work better as a team.”
When asked for her final opinion of the team, Rachel responded with a short but powerful promise: “We will get better.”
