North Area golf tournament

Sports Briefs for the 11/14/13 edition of the Sierra Star

November 12, 2013 

After placing first and second in the North Sequoia League golf tournament, Yosemite High golfers Jessica Rudd and Kelsie Stieler participated in the Nov. 5 Central Section Individual North Area Valley Champion tournament at Madera Golf and Country Club.

Rudd shot a 92 on the parr 73 course to finish 33rd and Stieler scored a 102 to place 45th.

Hannah Facchini won the event with a 76 and advances with 11 other golfers to the Nov. 14 California Championship at Rancho Murrieta.

"I was very proud of the way the girls played at the North Area Tournament," said coach Rusty Oetinger. "Kelsi surpassed her goal from the previous year and shot a 79 to qualify her for the Individual Valley Championship. Jessica also continued her pursuit to making it to the southern sectional championship. They were both disappointed with their play in Madera and are determined to do better next year."

Oetinger said he is looking forward to next season with Rudd and Stieler returning and a few young players coming up that will make the team better.

"Watch out for us next year," Oetinger said.
