Long Beach Sports Top 10 Moments Of 2022-23: Millikan Girls’ Golf Wins First CIF Championship

At the end of every school year we look back to reminisce on the accomplishments that defined Long Beach sports over the last 12 months. This year has been extra special because of the variety of schools and sports represented on this list— which is a hallmark of our diverse city and athletic community.

No. 10 – Poly Football Beats Mission Viejo

No. 9 – Poly Adds Girls’ Flag Football

No. 8 – Lakewood Hosts CIF Championship

No. 7 – Wilson Boys’ Tennis Makes School History With CIF Title

No. 6 – Millikan Girls’ Golf Wins First Ever CIF Championship

Coach Robert Tomlin had to laugh when he saw how his young girls’ golf team celebrated winning the CIF Southern Section Division 4 championship in the Fall. It is the first title in program history.

“They don’t really get it, because I’ve been doing this for over 20 years and it’s my first one, and they just got here and they win it,” Tomlin chuckled. “They all did their part and I am extremely proud of the whole team… And they all get along and nobody thought they were above the others. Even our best players are just one of the group.”

In the championship round at El Prado Golf Course in Chino Hills, the top three scorers for Millikan were freshman Hailey Stoskopf (86), freshman Isabel Lopez (90) and junior Monique Thomas (90).

“It’s the friendships,” Stoskopf said of her team’s strengths. “All of us are just really good friends and everyone was really welcoming and helpful.”
