Sports Breakdown: Golf chipping and sand bunkers
For the past three years, the Howard County girls golf scene has been dominated by the talented duo of Bryana Nguyen (Atholton) and Rachel Lee (Marriotts Ridge).
Nguyen, a three-time county Player of the Year, added a state championship to her resume last fall at the University of Maryland golf course. She also owns the county’s girls golf record for scoring average over the course of an entire season.
Lee, meanwhile, is a three-time first team all-county selection in her own right. She has finished in the top three in the county in scoring average every season since arriving as a freshman and has finished fourth at the state championship tournament for two straight years.
Nguyen has verbally committed to play collegiately at the University of North Carolina, while Lee committed this spring to the University of Delaware.
