Martinez resident Sydney Babiak of Bentley School made history on November 18. She was the first athlete from the small Lafayette high school to participate in a state championship.

Babiak, a senior, has been a force in North Coast Section golf since her freshman year and has competed around the country in summer tournaments, but getting to the California CIF girls’ golf championships was a tremendous achievement, even for golfers of her caliber.

Bentley does not have a girls’ golf team, so Babiak must enter the Bay Area Conference girls’ tournament without benefit of regular competition. She had to be one of the top eight golfers at the NCS Division II tournament, not just on one of the top few teams. She competed in the NCS Tournament and fired a 73 to move on to the NorCal championships, earning her spot at the state tournament in Southern California.

Starting in February, Sydney will begin practice with the Bentley boys’ team, where she is the No. 1 golfer on a team that will be the favorite to win the Bay Counties League-East title.

In the fall, Babiak will play golf at Yale, which is a tribute not only to her ability with a bag of clubs, but her success in the classroom as well.
