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.”
