EL DORADO HILLS — Oak Ridge High girls golf head coach Anthony Diaz was happy to see that extra time spent on the links paid off at the Delta River League tournament at Serrano Country Club Monday.

The Lady Trojans took second place at the league tournament with 433 points, just 26 points behind St. Francis, which won the league title with 417 points. Ponderosa was fourth with 539 points. Pleasant Grove took third while Folsom and Sheldon were disqualified because of lack of players.

Oak Ridge’s placing qualified it for the Sac-Joaquin Section Tournament at the Sunset Whitney Golf Club in Rocklin next Monday. The top two Delta River League teams advanced.

“We are very excited to earn this playoff spot,” Diaz said, “I couldn’t be more proud of these young ladies. To make it to the playoffs as a team qualifier from arguably one of the toughest leagues in the area is truly amazing.”

Underclassmen ruled for the Lady Trojans at the league tourney. Natalie Kinney, a freshman, led Oak Ridge on the par 72 course with a 77. Junior Carolyn Almeida followed with an 81, Isabel Arnold, another freshman, carded an 85, sophomores Courtney Clark and Roisin Kenny, trurned in a 94 and 96, respectively, and freshmen Lexi Perry shot a 99.

“The girls have worked extremely hard this season, and they fought at every match,” Diaz said.

In addition, Almeida and Kinney were named all-league.

Focus now shifts toward the postseason for Oak Ridge and Ponderosa’s Sabrina Piatt, whose score of 91 was 10th Monday and fourth among six individual qualifiers.

“We are definitely looking forward to the divisional, to compete against the other Division I teams in our area,” Diaz said. “I believe we have a great shot of earning one of the top four teams and moving onto Masters.”

For Ponderosa, Jasmine Monas and Julia Martin each carded a 108; Ally DeGunther shot a 111; Kaylee Wilson checked in with a 121; and Gianna Barber finished with a score of 124.
