Valencia Freshman Alison Lee Qualifies For U.S. Women’s Open Golf Tournament

Valencia High freshman Alison Lee is at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania preparing for her second U.S. Women’s Open golf tournament.

Last year, as a 14-year-old, Lee was the youngest player to make the cut in the Women’s U.S. Open. She finished in a tie for 26th place.

This year, she is one of 20 teenagers who earned spots in the U.S. Women Open through sectional qualifying.

The first round of the U.S. Women’s Open is Thursday.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
