With West Ranch girls golf having all but sewn up a second consecutive Foothill League title, and Golden Valley and Hart looking like the other two playoff teams from the league, it’s the individual battle that highlights today’s Foothill League finale and match No. 6.

On Tuesday at Foothill No. 5, West Ranch posted the best team score at 223 at the par-36 TPC Valencia.

The Wildcats now have a 32-stroke lead on second-place Golden Valley for the Foothill League crown.

The league champion is determined by total strokes with high score thrown out.

That’s the Grand Canyon compared to the crevice that separates first and second in individual play.

Hart senior Jamie Corr leads second-place Golden Valley freshman golfer Elisa Pierre by three strokes (150-153).

Corr was the medalist for the fourth time this year on Tuesday with her even-par 36.

Coming in second place was West Ranch sophomore Julie Ward with a 40.

Last year’s third-place finisher could be the biggest beneficiary of the final match format.

The top eight golfers over the course of the season will make the CIF individual postseason.

That means the best eight golfers minus their highest score on the season.

Because Ward didn’t play in the first two league matches, she can’t make the CIF individual postseason that way. But if she wins the Newhall Land Cup, which includes the fifth and sixth league matches plus nine more holes played today at TPC, she earns a postseason spot.

Pierre shot a 41, as did her teammate Amanda Hobbs.

Golden Valley finished in second place with a 230 on Tuesday and will almost assuredly make its first team golf postseason ever.

Hart finished third with a 235 and trails the Grizzlies for second place on the season by just six strokes.

Valencia is a distant fourth by 65 strokes.

The Vikings finished fourth on Tuesday with a 256, led by Andrea Webster’s 46.

Saugus shot a 272 led by Shannon Laurin’s 45.

The Centurions will finish in fifth place in league in front of Canyon, which did not have a qualifying team score on Tuesday.

Ashley Warner shot a 48 for the Cowboys.

1. Jamie Corr (Hart) 150
