Despite the foggy and cold weather in northern Napa, on Oct. 26, the Miramonte women golfers took home the NCS plaque after coming first among 10 other teams. Having improved from their second place finish last year, they hope to stay on top for years to come.

Six of the 13 members of the team qualified to play in the North Coast Section tournament, including Libby Dunne ’16, Ali Ingrey ’16, Tori James ’17, Franny Caronna ’17, Tiffany Shinn ’18, and Gracie Guidotti ’19. “I think our team has improved because there was more competition to make the cut this year,” Ingrey said. “This forced all of the girls to practice and made sure everyone was on the team for the right reasons.”

Many girls on the team played the best game of their season. James, the standout performer, scored even par and placed second overall, which allows her to compete in the NCS D1 tournament. Shinn played one of the best matches of her career and placed second for her team.

“Winning NCS was such a special experience and an absolutely amazing way to finish my last year on the Miramonte golf team,” Ingrey said.
