-- Yosemite High correspondentOctober 4, 2012 

The Yosemite High girl's golf team won their fourth North Sequoia League tournament in a row Sept. 28. at Pheasant Run in Chowchilla as the top five scores in the tournament were by Yosemite players.

Jordan Keyser and Jessica Rudd scored 35 points apiece to win the tournament. Kelsi Stieler came in third with 27 points, Hannah McMechan was fourth with 24 and Jordan Ahrens tied for fifth with 18 points.

Previously the Badgers had won at Sierra Meadows, Eagle Springs at Brighton Crest and Fresno West in Kerman.

In those matches, Keyser, Rudd and Stieler finished 1-2-3 and along with McMechan, are currently the top four golfers in the NSL with 115, 112, 107, and 94 MVP points, respectfully.

The was looking for five in a row as they traveled to Madera Muni yesterday. Results of the match were not available at press time.

The Badgers will host the NSL championship tournament at 2 p.m. on Oct. 12 at Sierra Meadows in Ahwahnee.

According to coach Reg Turner, the last two tournaments are great opportunities for the team to start fine tuning their game.

"We scored 140 points at Pheasant Run for our best effort of the year, but we still have not reached a team goal of 150 points," Turner said. "The Area Tournament is at Belmont Country Club on Oct. 15 and it is going to be a lot tougher than our league tournaments. We are hoping to get Keyser, Rudd and Stieler past the 'area' tournament and as individuals into the section tournament."

Last year Kersey, three time league MVP, won 'area' and eventually qualified for the southern regional.

In non-league matches the Badgers beat Kingsburg at Sierra Meadows 137 to 119 on Sept. 17 and won again on Sept. 25 at Kings River Country Club by scoring 139 points.
