Foothill golf: Not just another runaway

Hart wins Foothill League match No. 2 to move into league title contention with West Ranch

The last time there wasn’t a sure thing in Foothill League girls golf was 2005.

That year, Valencia and Hart were in a two-horse race until the final league match, with the Vikings eventually being crowned Foothill champions.

Since then, every year has seen a preleague favorite win the title and usually with some distance from the second-place team.

After the results of the first two league matches in 2012, it looks like we’re returning to 2005.

Hart won the second league match with a 233 at the par-36 Elkins Ranch Golf Course in Fillmore on Monday.

Odds-on preleague favorite West Ranch, which finished first in last Tuesday’s league opener, tied with fast-rising Golden Valley for second place with 246.

Hart was led by senior Jamie Corr, who for the second consecutive league match, was a medalist.

She shot a 4-over 40 at Elkins.

She was backed by a 43 from Lauren Yi and a 44 from her sister and freshman Katie Corr, who shot a 44. Kennedy Mullen stepped up with a 49.

West Ranch, meanwhile, was led by a 43 from Sarah Hong and a 44 from freshman Josie Lionetti.

Those were the Wildcats’ only scores in the 40s.

Absent for the second week was 2011 Foothill League No. 3 golfer Julie Ward.

The sophomore was unable to play due to a school decision.

The only way she can now make the CIF individual postseason is if she wins the season-ending Newhall Land Cup.

She is not ineligible for the league’s Most Valuable Player award because she won’t have enough qualifying scores.

Golden Valley was paced again by freshman Elisa Pierre with a 44, with senior Amanda Hobbs right behind her at 44.

Illeana Dullas added a 49.

Valencia was close at 253, with Joyce Kim leading the way with a 45. Andrea Webster added a 47 and Eunice Song shot a 49.

Saugus finished fifth with a 292, led by Brittney Eidem and Shannon Laurin’s 53s.

Canyon did not have enough qualifying scores, but was led by Tiana Yamaoka’s 63.
