As he anxiously awaits his family’s arrival from Montana, Tyler Martin has found solace in his new job as coach of the St. Francis High boys golf team.

“It’s brutal being so far from my family,” said the St. Francis graduate, whose wife, 11-month-old son and two stepchildren plan to relocate to the area at the end of the school year. “Being away from them, this is what I look forward to in my week. It’s the highlight of my week.”

The Lancers – clockwise, from left, Grace Chen, Reisha Savadatti, Bibi Liu, Jacqueline “Doodle” Yuen, Aishvarya Bedi and Maya Pugatch – celebrate their NorCal win.

Although last week’s win marked the fourth year in a row that the St. Francis High girls golf team has captured the Northern California championship, it has not become so routine that the Lancers don’t revel in their achievement.

“They celebrated like a bunch of high school girls, being silly and taking crazy photos,” coach Phil Marrone said. “They were having a great time.”
