Valencia’s Alison Lee Wins Newhall Land Cup Girls Golf Tournament

sportslocalThe Hart girls golf team won the Newhall Land Cup, the final Foothill League match of the season, by a whopping 29 strokes at TPC Valencia on Wednesday.

But it was Valencia’s Alison Lee who put up the most impressive round of the season.

 

Lee, needing to win the Newhall Land Cup individual championship to qualify for postseason, shot a tournament best 2-under par, 206. She won by three strokes over Hart’s Nikki Prichard, who shot an equally impressive 1-over par, 209, in the two-day tournament.

Prichard earned the Foothill League MVP by shooting a 185 in the five league matches, one shot better than teammate Brenna Carlson. The top-seven golfers in league qualified for CIF postseason play.

The top-five golfers in league are from Hart. Prichard, Carlson, Amanda Corr, Kendell Dusenberry and Jamie Corr from Hart qualified for CIF postseason. Nicole DeFrancisco and Catharine Walgamuth from Saugus round out the top seven and the CIF playoff qualifiers.

The top three teams in the Foothill League standings also qualified for CIF postseason. Hart, Saugus and Valencia will move on to the team portion of the CIF playoffs.

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!”
