Dragon Golf and Tennis Finish Season Play
THE WOODLANDS, TX – The John Cooper School’s Dragon golf and tennis have wrapped up their seasons with solid performances from both teams. Baseball, Softball, and Track & Field work hard as they continue play out their seasons.
- 4/20 hosted Cooper Invitational: Girls 5th place • Boys 5th place
“Congratulations to Tillie Claggett who shot 73 to finish Runner-up for Individual Girls Medalist honors,” said Coach Rod Gold. “Grant Carter shot a 72 to gather third place Medalist honors, while teammate Daniel Zou shot a 73 for a fourth place Individual Medalist honor on the boys side.”
“I am very appreciative of the opportunity to work with our boys and girls golf teams this year. It was exciting and fun to watch them. We saw some incredible golf this year including Tillie Claggett shooting a Personal Best 67 at the St. John’s Invitational. We had several players consistently scoring in the Top 5 of each tournament. Coach Sherman and I are looking forward to witnessing the continued growth of all our golfers as the potential for next year is substantial. Go Dragons!”
- 4/19 vs St. John’s*: Girls 4-1 L • Boys 3-2 W
“The boys team faced a challenging St. John’s team – their toughest match this season – and rallied to win 3-2,” said Coach Jill DelRio. “The girls had some tough competition as well, with Marielle Suber showing her talent and depth by defeating one of the best players in the South Zone Conference. Overall, the girls fell short but played some beautiful tennis and shoed they might just win the next round against St. John’s.”
- 4/23 vs Episcopal High School*: Girls 5-0 W • Boys 5-0 W
“Dragon boys and girls won easily against Episcopal on senior night,” DelRio added.
- SPC Record: Girls 5-3 • Boys 6-1
