The golfer that kick started the St. Augustine girls golf program is moving on, as Narda Garcia signed a letter of intent to play for the TAMIU Dustdevils. When Garcia arrived at the private school there was no girls team to play on, it was her playing with the guys. Four years later the girls team is thriving as they prepare for the state tournament next week and Garcia deserves a lot of that credit.
"It makes me feel very special but I think it's more important that we have a great team and I think we'll have it for the rest of St. Aug's life." (Narda Garcia, Going to TAMIU)
"Narda is a real hard worker and a lot of the girls follow her lead. They see her practicing and they want to get just as good as her or try to be as good as her, so they can play better and perform better." (Gilbert Rios, St. Augustine Golf Coach)
The Knights will head for Temple, TX to participate in the private school state championship beginning Monday at the Wildflower Country Club.
