The Hudson Valley women's golf team finished the 2011season with a perfect 3-0 record. The team doubled its numbers from last season, going from three to six golfers. Lisa Oyangen (Mohonasen/Rotterdam) finished a team- best second at the Delhi Invitational in April and team MVP Kristine Greco (New Lebanon/Nassau) placed third. Laurel Jicha (Hannibal/Hannibal), Nicole Sheldon (Columbia/East Greenbush) and Stephanie Schabhetl (Lansingburgh/Troy) have the distinction of being the only golfers to compete in all three tournaments this season. Megan Mormino (Niskayuna/Niskayuna) competed in the Tompkins Cortland Invitational and finished sixth. While only one of the ladies played high school golf and the others were just beginners, their hard work and dedication helped improve each of their scores throughout the season.
