“The new district alignment proved to be outstanding competition in golf with Memorial Stratford,” said Donna Benotti, Cy-Fair head girls’ golf coach. “The girls were behind with a very disappointing 10-stroke deficit after day one. On day two, the girls battled with our ‘BFND’ spirit, with one taking an enormous hit to the head with a ball. That did not stop the Bobcats from fighting to the end and posting top scores to take a spot to regionals.”
