VALENCIA GOLF TEAM FIT TO A TEE GIRLS' SQUAD HOLDS SWAY IN LEAGUE MATCH.

Byline: NATHAN BROWN Staff Writer

Valencia's Foothill League stronghold just got a little tighter Tuesday as the girls' golf team dominated the league match with a low score of 196 -- proving what Andy Raevouri has said all along about his depth -- ``Any one of our girls can step up at any time and win medalist.''

This time, it was junior Jenny Kim's turn when she shot a par 33 at Vista Valencia Golf Course to lead the Vikings (196) past Hart (220), Saugus (226), West Ranch (226), Golden Valley (287) and Canyon (334).

``It was just her turn this time,'' Raevouri said about Kim. ``She played outstanding golf.''

Although Kim shot par, she birdied holes two, five and nine at the course.

``She's always had a very good feel,'' Raevouri said of Kim's touch around the greens. ``Her pitching and putting are top notch.''

``It felt good and I was glad to help the team,'' Kim said of her effort. ``I was happy about it.''

Other top performers included second-place finishers Tracy White of Valencia and Wynne Shatkus of Saugus (37) and fourth-place finishers Jasmin Samson and Kristin Tayo of Valencia and Alyssa Wohlfeiler and Tiara Wells of Saugus, all of whom shot 38.

Saugus led Valencia by four strokes after Shatukus, Wohlfeiler and Wells put together impressive performances, but illness, a disciplinary scratch and unusual inconsistency gave their coach a hard time.

``We just had a tough day,'' coach Dave Stradling said. ``All the planets were certainly not in line for us today.''

But Stradling made sure to let his team know that there will be better days, especially this early in the season.

``It was a good learning experience,'' Stradling said. ``The girls were upset, but if we beat Hart two out of the next three, we'll be fine.''

Valencia to be tested: The Vikings' undefeated record could be in jeopardy when Quartz Hill meets Valencia in a match at Valencia Country Club today.

Golden League champion Quartz Hill tied Valencia at the Rebels' home course at 205 with solid performances from Katie Dilger and Ayla Friga.

``I think it will be a good match,'' coach Raevouri said. ``I'm glad we're teeing it up here.''

``I think we can win,'' Valencia's Jenny Kim said, ``if we play relaxed.''
