Sac-Joaquin Section Division I North Results

RANCHO MURIETA, Calif. – Junior Patricia Sweeney carded a two-over par 74 to pace the St. Francis golf team and help the Troubadours advance to the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters.

“I played with the No. 1 player (Sienna Lyford) and that helped keep my game because I am a very competitive person,” said Sweeney. “I was trying to beat her. I played really well.”

St. Francis advanced with a fourth-place finish with a 427 team score behind winner Granite Bay (381), Oak Ridge (410) and Pleasant Grove (427). The top four teams advanced to the Masters next week.

Sweeney posted three birdies on her card with all coming in a four-hole stretch from the 9th to the 13th hole. She double-bogeyed the 15th to stop the momentum. But she still finished just two-over par, tying Marie Dean from Davisand Hailey Reitz of Granite Bay for second overall behind Lyford, who finished with a 71.

“It is a confidence booster for me,” said Sweeney.

Sweeney has been low the player for St. Francis in five consecutive matches.

The Masters will be contested next Monday at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton.
