In girls golf, Pahrump Valley is winding down the season and played in a league match at Clark at Angels Park Golf Course. Clark won the match as Sabrina Ho carded a 3-over 74 to lead Clark to victory in this Sunset League match. The Chargers carded a team score of 336, Faith Lutheran had a 345, and Pahrump Valley was third with a 447.

Pahrump had a match at Faith Lutheran, which was the last regular season match before regionals on Oct. 14. This match was past deadline. This year’s regional match will be at Boulder Creek and according to Trojans Coach Bob Hopkins, his team won’t make the regionals as a team, but some will qualify to go as individuals. He said he won’t know who those individuals are until Friday.

Unfortunately, senior Jayde Woodworth will not make it to the regionals for the first time in two years. Illness has kept Woodworth out for several matches this season and the NIAA rules say you must play in three league matches to qualify.
