60 SUMMER 2019 | NCGA.ORG May 29 | Poppy Hills GC L a Costa Canyon High of Encinitas swept its way through the forest. La Costa Canyon, winners of the Southern California title, put on another show, rolling to a State title with a team score of 3-under 352 (best-five-scores-out-of-six) to claim a five-shot victory over league rival and defending champ Torrey Pines. In the Individual competition, 14-year-old La Costa Canyon freshman Luke Potter won with a score of 7-under 64. Featuring a mix of three seniors and three freshmen, LaCosta Canyon's young guns stood tall. Along with Potter's 64, the Mavericks got a 66 from Jonas and a 73 by freshman Landon Elliott. Rounding out the Mavericks scoring were seniors Kento Yamawaki (74), Matt Pennington (75) and Josh Rooker (80). It was La Costa Canyon's second State crown and first since 2009. Torrey Pines was led by a 65 from Caden Fiorini and a 71 by Isaac Rodea. The low NorCal squad was Jesuit High of Sacramento, who came in at 366 thanks in part to a 66 by Chase Senkiewicz. "This was a great combination of senior leadership and unfazed youth," La Costa Canyon head coach Casey Sovacool said. "Our young guys carried us to the finish line." Potter was flawless, carding seven birdies with no bogeys. "Overall, I had my 'A' game," Potter said. "I really liked the course." CIF Boys' State Championship C orey Weworski returned to one of her favorite events and rolled to another title. The 57-year-old Carlsbad resident saved her best for last, posting a final- round 3-under 69 to cruise to a 14-shot win over runner-up Sally Krueger. Weworski's three-day total of 2-under 214 is the lowest 54-hole score in the 41-year history of the championship. "I always love coming to this champi- onship," Weworski said. "When I turned 50 I was like, 'Yay!'" In the finale,Weworski posted four birdies to go against just one bogey. A day before, four back-nine bogeys left her searching for a quick fix. "I figured it out on the range," Weworski said. Krueger, coming off a tie for low amateur honors at the U.S. Senior Women's Open, shot a 77 to finish at 228. Pat Cor- nett, who captained the 2012 USA Curtis Cup squad, was third at 237 after an 81. Champion too in both 2016 and 2017, Weworski joined an illustrious group of five other players–Lynne Cowan, Sandy Woodruff, Barbara Stephan, Millie Stanley and record seven-time champ Marianne Towersey — who have won the event at least three times. The championship saw some changes for 2019, including the event going from 36 holes to 54 holes. The 2020 champi- onship will be held at La Cumbre CC in Santa Barbara. 41st California Senior Women's Amateur Championship May 20-22 | Quail Lodge Resort May 13-14 | Silver Creek Valley CC Flight A Net: Tracey Mundy and Ana Yamauchi, 132 Flight B Net: Sandra Mitchell and Adelle Wapple, 134 Flight C Net: Terri Rooney and Denise Mascari, 140 Flight B Gross: Mattie Rice and Sue Clark, 149 Flight C Gross: Susie Kim and Young Tom, 161 Flight A Gross: Pam Fadel and Joy Robinson, 136 WGANC 2-Person Scramble I Championship
