Lady Cats Golf Coach Whitney Spigener Says Regional Tournament was Learning Experience for Mariam Tran
Lady Cats Golf Coach Whitney Spigener said Monday (April 29) that last week’s Region II Class 5A Golf Tournament in Rockwall was a learning experience for Lady Cat golfer Mariam Tran. Tran shot 81 and 91 for a two-day total of 172 to finish in seventeenth place and out of the running for state. Coach Spigener said the region was pretty difficult and provided good competition for Tran. Tran’s first round 81, a bogey free round, put her just five strokes out of the lead and placed her among the elite golfers for the second day. Coach Spigener said Tran saw what it takes to be a state qualifier. Coach Spigener firmly believes Trans will qualify for state in the future. Tran shot a second day 91 and Coach Spigener said the stress might have gotten to her. Coach Spigener said Tran’s putting and short game gave her trouble. She said putting and the short game are high on Tran’s list for improvement next year.
