Sam Hemsley carded a 97 to lead Astoria, followed by Jenna Travers (111), Kaitlyn Boutin (136) and Constance Rouda (136).

Seaside’s Tristyn McFadden finished third overall with a 96, behind two Valley Catholic golfers. Teammate Caitlin Hillman shot a 114, while Emma Arden (133) and Elise Seppa (139) rounded out the Seaside scores.
