Bullard freshman Lauren Parayno won the individual title by six strokes with a 4-under par 68 and Clovis West won its 10th team championship in 11 years Monday in the Central Section North Area Tournament at Madera Municipal Golf Course.
Clovis West, with a five-player score of 388, won by 29 strokes over Buchanan behind juniors Aya Enkoji (75) and Madison Nii (76), sophomores Claire Shubin (77) and Kayla Terrey (79), and the team’s only senior, Allyson Musser (81).
Clovis West, Buchanan and Clovis North, as teams, and the lowest 10 scores of individuals not on those teams qualified for the section team and individual finals.
Those tournaments will be combined next week Monday at Kings Country Club in Hanford. They’re usually held in separate weeks, but scheduling conflicts forced otherwise.
Never miss a local story.
Clovis West is pursuing a fourth straight Division I team title and and ninth in 11 years. The Golden Eagles this season won a 12th-consecutive Tri-River Athletic Conference championship behind league Player of the Year Madison Nii, a junior and two-time Bee All-Star.
