The Coppell girls golf team finished second at the District 6-6A Championship on April 2-3 at Bear Creek Golf Club. The team advances to the Class 6A Region I Tournament on Wednesday and Thursday at Tangle Ridge Golf Club in Grand Prairie.

The Coppell girls golf team competed in the Swing For the Cure tournament at Brackenridge Park in San Antonio against teams from Districts 4-4A, 5-5A, and 6-6A, with the Cowgirls overall placed ninth in a field of 24.

The two-day total on Sept 29-30 was 960, shooting a 311, 317 and 332 in each round, respectively. 

The Cowgirls played 54 holes in two days, playing 36 holes with no breaks on the first day and 18 holes on the second day.

“Playing 36 holes in one day is an achievement, because it is not something you can do every day and doesn’t occur at district or state tournaments,” junior Oorja Agarwal said. “This was a first for [sophomore Isabella Nguyen] and I, and to be able to accomplish that is a big deal.”

Coppell sophomores Alicia Bendir and Nethra Sheri placed 15th and 20th individually. Bendir finished with a total of 220 and Sheri finished with a total of 223. 

Swing for the Cure is an annual charity golf tournament that invites teams across the country to compete in efforts to raise breast cancer awareness. Each team that competes donates a certain amount to play and all of the funds collected goes towards teachers who struggle with breast cancer. 

“I think more than doing good in this tournament, it was more about what the point of the event was,” Agarwal said. “The cause of the tournament is beautiful and also helped us understand the teams around us before we go into district, regionals and state.”
