CIF State Qualifier
Palos Verdes girls 1 stroke short of making state golf tournament.
A season that saw the Lady Sea Kings ascend to soaring heights, came to a heartbreaking conclusion yesterday. The Girls Golf Team fell short of advancing to the state qualifying event by one stroke. The top 5 teams were separated by a mere six (6) strokes. The team was led by E. Doty, N. Mu, S. Bergland & M. Perez. In a heart wrenching elimination, the Lady Sea Kings should be proud of the fact that this season they accomplished so much:
- Won the Triton Rainbow Sandals event, beating the State champions by 10 strokes
- Won the Palm Desert Invitational by a whopping margin of victory
- Repeated as Ocean League Co Champions
- Won the CIF Central Team Divisional for the program’s first ever CIF title
It has been a pleasure to witness the progress & numerous highs of this program for the past three years!!!! We wish nothing but continued, positive success to all the Sea King Seniors as they continue on in their academic & athletic walks of life. It’s been a fabulous ride…

It was a tough scoring day out there, but thanks to Elizabeth Doty's stellar low round of the day (69) plus Natalie Mu & Mackenzie Perez efforts, the Lady Sea Kings conquered the CIF Central Division Team title yesterday. Round two of Team play will find them in Temecula next week looking to continue their quest towards the State Final in November.

It was something of a South Bay invasion at Monday's CIF Southern Section Central Division Team Championships at Los Serranos Country Club in Chino Hills, but it was Palos Verdes that ultimately stole the show.
Thanks to Elizabeth Doty, who along with Torrance's Anne Cheng posted the top individual score of the day at 5-under-par 69, Palos Verdes scored 393 team points to take first place and capture the program's first CIF championship.
South Bay teams claimed the top four spots with Mira Costa (403) in second place, North Torrance (411) in third and Torrance (418) in fourth place.
All four teams advanced to next Monday's CIF Team Qualifier at 8 a.m. at The Legends Golf Course in Temecula.
This event was formerly known as the CIF-SS Team Finals.
"It's the greatest feeling in the world to win our first CIF championship with this group of girls," Palos Verdes coach Ray Rivera said.
Doty had six birdies and a bogey en route to her 69. Natalie Mu shot a 74 and Mackenzie Perez shot a 77 for Torrance.
"To have your No. 1 player always put you near or under par is such a blessing," Rivera said.

JV Results: Torrance
The JV squad lost a couple of tough matches this week to Torrance. Torrance made life difficult for our Lady Linksters on Monday, but yesterday's match found the JV team making it a very competitive match on their home course of Terranea where they pulled within 3 strokes of matching their opponent.
Coach Wilson stated: "Close, but no cigar. We were a lot more competitive this time around, though. Heavy wind and really fast greens today...tough conditions".
PVHS (215) vs Torrance HS (212) at Terrenea GC (Par 27)
VARSITY TOURNAMENT RESULTS: AYALA & KNABE CUP
PV's Elizabeth Doty was steady as usual with a 74. Sophie Bergland shot 75, Mackenzie Perez and Roxanne Matta each shot 83s and Payton Vallee shot 92. "It's the first time we've tasted defeat all year, and I hope our girls remember it," Rivera said. "Hats off to North Torrance. This was a great start to a great week."
Mira Costa overcame Ocean League powers North Torrance (298) and Palos Verdes (306). Diamond Bar was fourth with 307 strokes, and defending champion Torrance was fifth with 322 strokes.
Palos Verdes continued to produce solid results. But the Sea Kings have been bested by local rival teams of late.
Elizabeth Doty shot a 71 and parred her last 10 holes. Natalie Mu shot 75, Mackenzie Perez shot 79 and Sophie Bergland shot 81."I had so many birdie opportunities, and I could not take advantage today," Doty said. "I did putt better today, but a lot more could have fallen."

THAT WAS CLOSE!!!
Yesterday, the Lady Sea Kings held on to defeat perennial state power Torrance & remain undefeated in both league and season matches. The Sea Kings were down a starting player to injury, but were provided an outstanding effort by Leslie Robertshaw when they really needed it. The victory takes Torrance out of the league equation and now leaves next week’s matches against North Torrance as the determining factor in who will be crowned Ocean League Champs.
