CIF State High School Girls Championship

Nov. 19, 2019, Poppy Hills GC

The California Interscholastic Federation is divided into 10 sections, and each provides contestants in the events based on district student population. The State Championship is a one-day event run by the NCGA and SCGA, with teams and individual students competing in 18 holes of stroke play. The top nine individuals and top three teams of each region (Northern and Southern) advance to the State Championship, which rotates each year between Northern and Southern sites.

A Story of Redemption

The 2017 runner-up team and individual had a chance for redemption this year and are now the champions of the 2018 CIF Girls State Championship at the Victoria Club in Riverside.

Troy High School of Fullerton sneaked into the championship title by two shots, and Brianna Navarrosa of Mater Dei High School crushed the back-9 to win the individual title with a 4-under 68.

Troy, who finished runner-up at CIF/SCGA Regionals, shot a final score of 22-over 382, with Dougherty Valley Wildcats in second with a 24-over 384. Isabel Sy, who also had a strong round at Regionals, led the team with a 1-over 73, firing an impressive back-nine 1-under. Behind Sy was Sherilyn Villanueva (75), Mylan Hirata (77), Elyse Kim (78) and Kamile Dimayuga (79).

All day, the individuals’ leaderboard was a toss-up. It wasn’t until Navarrosa’s back-9 when she landed leading position after she threw together five quick birdies and didn’t lose her spot for the rest of the afternoon.

“My putting really came through and when I knew I was falling behind the lead I had that fire to push on, knowing I could rely on my short game,” Navarrosa said.

The Mater Dei junior had a 1-stroke lead going into No. 17, but Navarrosa finished in style, knocking in a 10-footer for birdie on the final hole to secure her win.
