High school golf: Central Section Girls Individuals preview

The Fresno BeeNovember 4, 2013 

Redwood's Sophia Stetson, left, Liberty's Mallory Wells, center, and Bullard's Claire Malley, right, watch Bakersfield Christian's Julia Stewart, not in photo, during the Girls Valley Team Golf Championship on Tuesday in Lemoore.



Vitals: Bullard's Claire Malley, Clovis' Hayden Mammen and Clovis West's Keila Takeuchi, as the top qualifying threesome with scores of 70 out of the North Area Tournament, tee off at 10 a.m. Tuesday to launch the 51-player event at 5,903-yard, par-73 Madera Country Club. Three six-person teams plus the top nine individuals not on qualifying teams advance to the Southern California Championship on Nov. 14 at The Golf Course at Rancho Murrieta.

The skinny: Section's 19th individual tournament will draw one of its strongest fields ever. But that cast will be challenged by a long course with a few substantial elevation changes that presents greens located above or below fairways. Consequently, scores in general are expected to be higher than area qualifying marks. The last section individual tournament at Madera CC produced a winning round of 75 by Mt. Whitney's Eryn Williams in 2004. … Talent in the section has been North Area heavy, featuring County/Metro Athletic Conference champion Malley, sophomore Mammen, Tri-River Athletic Conference Player of the Year Krista Twet of Buchanan and Division I titlist Clovis West, behind Takeuchi and Jenna Scrivner — daughter of Memorial graduate and three-time Stanford All-America Kathleen McCarthy-Scrivner. But the Central Area is sure to be represented well by four-time section qualifier Hannah Facchini of Hanford West. And the South Area has a freshman phenom in Stockdale's Lexi Keene.
