Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a joyous time to remember those who have passed away. In Mexico, ancient Aztec traditions were combined with Christianity during the Spanish conquest. As a result, each year families construct colorful altars or ofrendas in their homes that essentially welcome the spirit of their loved ones on November 1st and 2nd.
We returned to Cedarbrook, to play in an annual invitational tournament, which is held on the course we will ultimately play for our WPIAL playoffs.I love this tournament for our girls - we get a good look at the course, gain tournament experience, and have a friendly competition as it has no bearing on our regular season (though we want to win it!). Well, we won it for the first time ever! Back tracking a bit, we had to move up our tee time to 7:30 am (eclipse) requiring a 5:30am meeting time (never good for teenagers!). We also learned that we would be playing the gold course (the boys’ course) and not the red course, which will be our WPIAL course. So much for the “good look”. In the end,it all worked out. We shot our lowest score ever at Cedarbrook, and proudly received the trophy which is available for viewing in the Events Center. Four of our girls received additional medals for being in the top 8 pf all the players, with Tatum earning medalist. Stay tuned!
Tatum - 78 Zoe - 87 Brianna - 91 Lexie - 93 Haley - 117 * Her first 18 holes ever finishing the round with her first birdie! We are really proud of her and her performance!
