Jupiter High’s girls’ golf team beat Dwyer High School in a close match at Old Trail in Jupiter Farms on Sept. 4. The match was held at 3:30 p.m.

Coach David Janney has been coaching the Lady Warriors for three seasons.

“My philosophy for coaching my team is hard work, and dedication wins championships,” Janney said. “We have a strong team that plays against one another daily and strives to push each other to lower scores.”

Eight girls on the team are looking to further their golfing career in college.

Lipscomb University commit Karly Falanga said, “I am so relieved to already be committed and not having to deal with all the stress of applying to different schools or stressing about finding a roommate because I will be rooming with another golfer. It is really cool that I have the opportunity to go out of state and meet new people.”

High school matches are typically played with nine holes. Senior Izzy Galla shot a 37, and senior Lilly Pinkham shot a 63.

“I have only been playing for one year and I decided to join the team because I wanted to have the opportunity to play in my last year of high school. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and make new friends while doing something I love,” said Pinkham.

Come support the girls’ golf team at their next match on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 3:30 p.m. at Dwyer.
