Been there.

Done that.

Did it again.

The Hart High girls golf team keeps adding to its own splendor as the Indians, for the second season in a row, won the CIF-Southern Section Northern Team Divisional.

The Indians shot an 18-hole school record of 383 Thursday at the par-72 Cypress Ridge Golf Course in San Luis Obispo.

They shot a 410 in last year's Northern Divisional at River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard, a course that Indians head coach Renee Onori said is easier than Cypress Ridge.

Hart failed to get past the second round of the postseason last year - the CIF-Southern Section Team Final.

Whether or not they can get past it this year is the question.

"That's our goal," Onori said. "I feel more confident about their play, yes."

The top four teams from Monday's Southern Section Final will advance to the CIF-WSCGA Tournament on Nov. 16, which is the qualifier for the state championship on Nov. 19.

Four teams advanced from Thursday's Northern Divisional - Hart, Westlake (393), Righetti (423) and Royal (424).

Saugus (472) and Valencia (477) were the other representatives from the Foothill League and did not advance.

Saugus was led by Catherine Walgamuth with an 84.
The top three Saugus scores all came from juniors which bodes well for its future.

"I think we're in a lot of the same situation that we were this year. We'll lose a couple of seniors that we have to find replacements for. If we find replacements we will be in the same spot with a chance to come back better," said Saugus head coach David Stradling.

Valencia was led by Alison Lee, who produced the top score from a Foothill League golfer - 71.

Lee was five shots off from the event's medalist. Danielle Kang of Westlake shot a 66.

Westlake's Lauren Diaz-Li shot a 69 and the Warriors were still unable to overcome Hart.

"I don't even think they played their best today," Stradling said of Hart. "I think they put up a good score, a solid team score, but there was nothing crazy low (individually)."

Nothing crazy low, just steady and strong.

The Indians' five scores were within seven strokes of each other.

Nikki Prichard led Hart with a 74.

Brenna Carlson (75), Kendall Dusenberry (77), Amanda Corr (79) and Jamie Corr (81) followed.

The only score posted from another divisional on the CIF-Southern Section Web site had Palm Desert winning the Eastern Team Divisional with a 375.

According to the Orange County Register, Canyon of Anaheim won the Southern Regional with a 372, upsetting the defending state champion Torrance, which posted a 375. Torrance also advanced.
