Senior Abi Saco, 17, beat 39 other golfers and brought home the gold. Saco has excelled throughout her high school career, and her improvement has clearly shown this year.

The entire team’s hard work and dedication showed at this Jamboree. Saco stated, “Our team worked together well during practices, and individually had an amazing short game.” 

Saco placed first, and the other 5 Woodhaven athletes finished close behind.
