MONT BELVIEU – The Seven Lakes girls high school golf team recently won the regional tournament for a second year in a row at the Eagle Pointe Golf Club in Mont Belvieu. Last year was the first time that the Seven Lakes girls won the golf regionals. They took the regionals by one stroke a year ago, and they won by a single stroke again this year.
“I’m so proud of this team,” said Coach Sean Ewing. “This was a true testament of teamwork. They came through when they needed to and got the job done!”
Seven Lakes shot 42-over 618 to win the Region III-6A girls’ tournament over Memorial, which shot 43-over 619 during the two-day event.
The Seven Lakes Spartans are now on to the state tournament, which will be played May 13 and 14at Legacy Hills in Georgetown. The top 12 teams will compete.
Seven Lakes has been a golf powerhouse since the high school opened in 2005, and team captain Isha Dhruva hopes to win it all at State before she heads off to play golf at Penn State next year.
“This team is like a family to me,” Dhruva said. “We made a great comeback after the first day and accomplished our goal. I couldn’t be more proud of their spirit and dedication,” she added.
The Spartans’ home course is Meadowbrook Farms Golf Course in Katy.
The head coach is Sean Ewing and his assistant coach is Mark Szafran.
The five girls who will compete at the state tournament are Dhruva, junior Kathryn Gleason, and sophomores Grayson Heilman, Lauren Nguyen and Olivia Kim.
“These girls are a very hardworking, humble, tight-knit group that never gives up and always strives to do better,” said parent Janet Heilman
