“This was the last match for the five seniors. The parents and JV team hosted a wonderful senior night for them,” said Cathcart. “The theme was “Queens of the Course”.

Four of the five have played golf all four years and one has played two years.

“These girls have been very dedicated throughout their time in the Escalon Golf Program,” added Cathcart. “They will be greatly missed.”

Escalon was scheduled to play at the league tournament at Micke Grove on Monday, Oct. 16, past press time for The Times.

“We need to come in the top three to move on to Divisional, which will be the following week (Oct. 23) also at Micke Grove,” Cathcart said.
