PALMDALE — Quartz Hill freshman Kylie Warner shot one stroke better than Highland three-time Golden League champion Arlene Salvador in a Golden League girls golf match at Rancho Vista Golf Course on Thursday.
The Rebels won the four-team match, shooting an 207 over Palmdale’s 279, while Highland and Lancaster fielded just three golfers each.
Warner shot a 37 with Salvador close behind at 38. Warner said she led for almost the entire nine holes.
“Going into my first match, I knew about (Salvador),” Warner said. “My goal overall is just to really do good for myself, but also kind of beat her. …
“It felt good. I mean, I could have done a little better in some areas, but it felt good, mostly because I did beat Arlene.”
Quartz Hill senior Alysha DiJamco finished with a 39, a career-low for her, while freshman Terry Muller also shot a season-low with a 41. Madison Schafer finished with a 44, while freshman Taylor Waters shot a 46 despite battling a stomach virus.
“Most kids would have quit and I wouldn’t have blamed her if she did,” Quartz Hill coach Kevin Mahady said about Waters.
Warner has been playing golf since she was 4 and started playing in tournaments when she was 8. She said she likes the team aspect in high school golf.
“I played individual golf for the past 5, 6 years, so it’s cool to have a team that you can play with and practice with,” Warner said. “It’s a little different having a team and the play that we get to experience, but I enjoy it so far.”
Amoreena Adams and Maria Oorloff both shot 51 to lead Palmdale, while Estefani Barajas shot a 52, Darcy Monterosso had a 62 and Jocelyn Cano-Ruiz picked up a 63.
Highland’s Kendall Sumner followed Salvador with a 51 and Adrianna Rosales shot a 66.
Lancaster’s Evangelina Ruiz shot a 69, while teammates Arly Gomez and Akelia Jackson both shot 72.
