Marshall senior shoots 73

When the pressure was on, Jasmine Lew of Marshall came through on Thursday to win the City Section girls’ golf championship at Balboa Golf Course.

The senior, who is headed to Cal, shot a one-over-par 73 for a one-stroke victory over defending champion Angelina Kim of Fairfax and Megan Lee of Cleveland.

“In the beginning, I was struggling,” Lew said. “After that, I told myself to calm down and just swing and just play.”

The California Interscholastic Federation, the governing body of high school sports in the state, issued a warning on Thursday in the wake of what it called “a disturbing trend exhibited across our state at school athletic contests and activities of fighting, bench-clearing brawls and threats of retaliatory actions that have disrupted, postponed and canceled games due to inappropriate behavior, both on the field and in the stands and parking lots.”

The CIF is reminding schools of the “CIF Operating Principles of Pursuing Victory with Honor.” The release was issued specifically because of incidents in football.

According to the news release, “The CIF reserves the right to deny a member school participation in regional and state championship games regardless of their status as qualifiers from their sections if these important standards are not met.”

As for how successful the trick plays are, Muir said, “Some have worked, some haven’t. Last week it went for an interception.”

Muir is always on the lookout for new trick plays.
