Cynthia Liu and Ryan Shimony of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas girls’ golf completed a memorable season representing Marjory Stoneman Douglas in the State Championship on Nov. 8.

Liu booked her way into States after finishing tied for second individually with a 72 at the Boca Raton Golf and Racquet Club. Ella Mamame, Samatha Schwartz, Stella Marvel, and Sophia Alcala-Marks also had terrific seasons and competed individually for MSD to help them finish sixth in Regionals.

“Liu played really well through the heat and five-hour round,” said Head Coach Devin Schaller. “Battled on the back nine where she followed up a tough bogey with an awesome birdie putt to shoot even par on the back.”

A week later, Liu competed in States and came in 23rd place after shooting a 78.
