CENTRAL SECTION TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
Vitals: Shotgun start at Lemoore Golf Course will be at noon Tuesday. The forecast is 59 degrees for seven teams competing for the Division I title and three for the D-II crown. Defending champions are Stockdale in D-I and Buchanan in D-II, but the Bears have since moved up to D-I. The section individual tournament will be next Tuesday at Madera Country Club.
The skinny: Clovis West, the Tri-River Athletic Conference and North Area champion, will not only be gunning for its sixth D-I title in eight years, but a section finals record team score as well. That five-player standard of 402 was set by Frontier in 2010 at Visalia's Valley Oaks Golf Course. CW, led by Keila Takeuchi (70) and Jenna Scrivner (74), fired a 387 in last week's North Area at Madera Municipal. Previously, the Golden Eagles (186) and Buchanan (196) shot the best 1-2 combination over nine holes (Copper River) in section history. The Bears have the TRAC Player of the Year in Krista Twet. Clovis North, behind All-TRAC selection Taylor Vaughn, could press for the team title. Stockdale (442) and Redwood (473) were the South and Central area D-I winners. Bakersfield Christian will be favored Tuesday over Bullard and Lemoore in D-II.
