The Wolfpack were unable to drum up much offense in their return game against Damien, losing to the Spartans 7-4. Claremont came into the game confident following 3 wins in a row, but Damien made it tough for Claremont to break through on goal. The Wolfpack are currently 4-2 in Sierra League play, 9-4 overall, and will play in the CHS tournament this weekend to make a push for playoffs.
Claremont COURIER athlete of the week
As co-captain and one of the top performers for the Wolfpack golf team, Kennedy Bingham is doing her best to drive her team to success. The Claremont High junior has been steadily improving her play each round during the regular season, consistently conquering courses in around 50 strokes. Bingham brought her best overall match to date during the Sierra League finals, shooting 96 on the first day of competition and then improving to 94 for the second day for an overall score of 190 strokes. That stellar performance put her at 5th place in the entire league for the tournament, and inspired 3 other teammates to receive all-league selections. Bingham competed in the CIF Individual Regionals on Wednesday, and hopes to return next year and pick up right where she left off.
