Golfer Girl Plays Hurt

Riverbank High School's top girl golfers, Ashlyn Reed, played the season's final tournament with a sprained wrist, and did not qualify to advance any further.

"The injury obviously was bothering her. She did not play badly that day. But her play wasn't as good as it could have been," said her coach John Bartlett.

The Bruin team closed their season on Oct. 18, playing in the Valley Foothill League tournament at Micke Grove.

Riverbank placed 12th out of 13 teams just ahead of Livingston.

Riverbank's league record for the season was 2-11. The Bruins defeated Escalon and Livingston.

"This was one of my best teams," said Bartlett. "Our record does not really reflect our play. We kept on losing close matches. By one stroke, three, five, and eight strokes. It was frustrating. But I guess it wasn't meant to be."

The Bruins mustered four seniors among their team of 10 golfers this season. Bartlett is hoping to see six girls return to the squad next year and bring it some experience.
