She will have the opportunity to play in the New York State tournament in June, as will fellow sophomore Allison Khan. Sophomore Chloe Ji also had a solid two rounds, missing out on a state tournament berth by just one stroke.

Boys’ Golf – On Tuesday, 5/23, the Raiders competed for a team Section 1 title. After coming in 2nd in the regular season differential, they lost home course advantage for the section championship for the first time in half a decade.
