Freshman Alex Manion Leads the Way for San Marcos Golf

Freshman Alex Manion shot a team-low 47 to lead a balanced San Marcos scorecard in a 248-299 non-league win over Righetti at Sandpiper Golf Course on Thursday.

The Royals' lineup played steady golf. Alex Pitchford was one shot behind Manion at 48, Lauren Pitchford fired a 49 and Amanda Chen and Amber Chen carded 51 and 53, respectively.

"Most of the team saw a lot of improvement in their confidence on the course this week," San Marcos coach Sarah Ashton said. "It was great to see freshman Alex Manion post a team-low today and all of the girls showed really nice focus today."

Righetti standout Sarah Fouratt was the match medalist with a 1-over par 37.

San Marcos (2-0) plays Monday at the Pirate Invitational in Santa Ynez.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
