Delta women’s golf makes program history


For the first time in five years Delta College women’s golf team won first place in the Big 8 Conference match on Sept. 20, at Table Mountain Golf Course in Oroville.

The team continues to stay strong tying first place on Oct. 4 with Sacramento City College with the score of 337.

Last week, Delta again won first place at the Big 8 conference at Kennedy Park Golf Course in Napa scoring 353 followed by Napa Valley College with a team score of 356.

“It’s rewarding to see these girls advance because some of them join the team with little to no experience about the sport,” said Coach Tony Troncale, who has 30 years of experience as a PGA professional golfer.

Trocale has been coaching the women’s golf team for five years, as well as the men’s golf team for seven years.

“Being a PGA professional golfer, I want to be able to teach these athletes to become better players,” said Trocale.

The team’s goal is to stay focused.

Trocale will continue to get the team ready for the Nor Cal Regional Tournament in November with hopes of advancing to the state championships.

The next home match will be on  Oct. 25 at 11 a.m. at Swenson Park Golf Course in Stockton.
