Zohie Betts is a Terra Linda Junior and has been an avid golf player for five years. And is now in her second year on our school’s varsity team. This season, Zohie has shown she is committed and a talented addition to the team! Earlier in the season, she played in a match against San Marin and San Rafael, she earned a score of 39 and received low medalist honors along with teammate Piper Egan. On September 22, Terra Linda played against Novato and Marin Catholic. Zohie ended the match with medalist honors for the second time, receiving a score of 36. When playing against San Marin once again, along with Tamalpais High, Zohie shot for 45, being a medalist for the third time!

When it comes to golf, Zohie’s inspiration for playing is to improve. Since coming to TL her sophomore year, she has enjoyed playing golf and the excitement it brings her. “I love playing because it’s a sport that’s calming and keeps me focused, but it’s still competitive so I enjoy being able to showcase my abilities against other schools,” she remarked. Zohie said that if she could achieve anything this year it would be to shoot close to par in as many matches as possible. Next season will be her last, and Zohie’s is ready to take any challenges that come towards her!
