Kailey Hill was only one stroke back as the senior three-sport athlete shot a 45. Doulgeropoulos beat her counterpart by eight strokes and Hill bettered her’s by 12 shots.
Cheyenne Hockin’s 53 was one stroke better than Valley Center’s No. 1 and six shots better than her counterpart. Every Lady Bulldog bettered the score of her counterpart. Courtney Keisel posted a 54 and Rachel Costan carded a 55. Bre Hirsh shot a 58.
“We didn’t shoot as well as we wanted at Valley Center but we had a great practice the next day and it really paid off. We talked about how close the match with Oceanside would be and it was. We beat them 243-245 at their home course for a great win. Kailey (Hill) shot a great round and took the medalist honors,” said Coach John Rathbun after the road win over Oceanside.
Hill shaved six strokes off her Valley Center score, which was a large factor in Ramona’s win over Oceanside. Doulgeropoulos carded a 46. Hockin improved her score by three strokes as she shot 50. Hirsh also showed major improvement as she shaved six strokes off her Valley Center score to shoot 52. Amanda Raines shot a 56 to round out the scoring.
