Below is Chandra’s excerpt:

Heading into the final Region 2 meet of the season on Wednesday at The Ridge Golf Course, Cyprus sophomore Madalin Chandra sits in second place as she is having a terrific season for the Pirates.

Chandra is averaging 90.6 in her five Region 2 rounds, with her best round coming at The Ridge earlier this season as she shot an 80.

“Madalin Chandra is quiet and shy, but not in the way she golfs. She is strong and determined. She is only in 10th grade and is golfing at a maturity level that is amazing to me as her coach,” said Cyprus coach Melissa Tuckett.

“Golf is a lot about how well you accept and respond. If Madalin hits a bad shot or doesn’t score as well as she would like on a hole, she picks herself up and says ‘it’s OK’ and moves on to the next. One time she had a very disappointing second hole. But by the end of her tournament she still came in second place.”

Congrats and good luck Chandra!
