The Bee's Fall All-Stars: Girls Golf First Team

Katie Horsford

** Vitals: Junior, Clovis West

** Qualified because: Played an integral role in two record-shattering team performances by Golden Eagles. First, she contributed a 2-over 38 at Copper River Country Club as they set Central Section nine-hole record of 186 at Tri-River Athletic Conference Tournament. Then, her team-leading 72 was featured in a 385 total as Clovis West torched the section record by 17 strokes in the team finals at Lemoore Golf Course. She also shot 82 in the Section Individual Championship at Madera Golf & Country Club and 79 in the Southern California Championship at The Golf Course at Rancho Murrieta.

Claire Malley

** Vitals: Junior, Bullard

Qualified because: Only Bee Player of the Year Hannah Facchini of Hanford West (74.7) averaged better than Malley (75.5) in postseason play in the section. For Malley, a Bee Honorable Mention All-Star as a sophomore and this year's County/Metro Athletic Conference titlist, that ranged from a 70 in the North Area to 71 in the Section Team to 77 in the SoCal Regional and 84 in the Section Individual.

Hayden Mammen

** Vitals: Sophomore, Clovis

** Qualified because: All-TRAC player tied Bullard's Claire Malley and Clovis West's Keila Takeuchi by firing a 2-under 70 in regulation at Madera Municipal Golf Course in the North Area Tournament. Takeuchi then won a sudden death playoff. Mammen's 79.4 average per 18 holes was fourth-best in six TRAC tournaments. She also tied for seventh in the Section Individual tournament with an 82 at Madera Golf & Country Club, and shot 81 at the SoCal Regional.

Paulette Maskarino

** Vitals: Senior, Hanford

Qualified because: Four-time SoCal Regional qualifier and repeat Bee All-Star earned a share of her fourth straight Central Area Tournament title by tying Mission Oak's Hannah Price with a 78 at Tulare Golf Course. Maskarino then tied for third in the Section Individual with a 6-over 79. And she closed her prep career by firing a 76 — second best among section representatives — in the SoCal Regional.

Jenna Scrivner

** Vitals: Junior, Clovis West

** Qualified because: The family tree continues to hit 'em long and straight as she follows her mother, who starred at Memorial and Stanford as Kathleen McCarthy, and sister Laura Scrivner, a Bee All-Star last year as a senior. Jenna Scrivner was at the top of her game in the North Area and Section Team tournaments with 74s in each. She made All-TRAC.

Keila Takeuchi

** Vitals: Senior, Clovis West

** Qualified because: Only 5-feet-1 but standing tall in the lore of Golden Eagles golf, she was a four-year starter and member of two section championship teams and four North Area team crowns. It took her just two playoff holes to dismiss Bee All-Stars Claire Malley of Bullard and Hayden Mammen of Clovis to take North Area medalist honors after they tied with 2-under 70s at Madera Municipal Golf Course. Then Takeuchi figured prominently in Clovis West's record-breaking show in the Section Team finals with a 75. She made All-TRAC after averaging a league third-best 78.0 per 18 holes.

Krista Twet

** Vitals: Senior, Buchanan

** Qualified because: Repeat Bee All-Star was named TRAC Player of the Year after averaging 76.3 per 18 holes in six league events. Her 2-over 74 at Lemoore Golf Course led the Bears to a second-place finish in the Section Team tournament. She also tied for third with a 6-over 79 in the Section Individual finals.

Coaching Kudos

** Ken Shipley, Clovis West: Not only directed the Golden Eagles to their fifth Central Section Division I title in his seven years with the program, his team did so in record-breaking fashion. He's also 7 for 7 both in Tri-River Athletic Conference and North Area Tournament titles.

** Greg Funk, Buchanan: Bears' school-record 196 nine-hole team score in TRAC Tournament at Copper River CC just happened to come on a day Clovis West fired a section-record 186. After winning the section D-II crown under Funk in 2012, Buchanan bumped up to D-I this season and placed second to the Eagles in the section finals.
