10/13/19 – The Lady Griffins represented our school and the region with class this weekend at the prestigious Honda Classic High School Invitation at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens. LMP finished second in a power-packed field of 15 teams from the southeast, trailing only a sensational team effort by champion The First Academy.
The Griffins were in third place after the first round, shooting a team score of 293 in windy and soggy conditions, playing in off and on rain showers. The team then rallied to take second place in even tougher conditions in the final round, shooting 298 for a two-day total of 591. Junior Ellen Dong led the way with rounds of 71-72 for a one-under-par total of 143. Sophomore Iris Wang shot 71-77—148, Karoline Tuttle shot 74-74—148 and Victoria Zheng shot 77-75—152. Senior Captain Mimi Chen had to withdraw in the second round due to health reasons. Congratulations to a classy group of young ladies from LMP and Coach Mike Jamison!
District 6 Championships at LPGA International in Daytona begin tomorrow with a 9:00am shotgun start!
