Girls Open Golf Season At Emerald Lakes

The high school golf season got its start Wednesday afternoon with the annual Loren Roberts Golf Tournament, a 9-hole scrimmage that brings in all the girls golf teams from throughout the Elk Grove school district.

The event honors Loren Roberts, a PGA Senior Tour golfer who heard about the plight of athletics in Elk Grove several years ago and donated money to keep golf alive in the school district after it was announced that funding for the sport would be cut.

The scores aren't officially posted for Wednesday's outing at Emerald Lakes Golf Club because it is still considered to be a pre-season event. Most of the high school girls, though, will start dual matches in less than two weeks.

The two top girls in the city weren't competing today: Courtney Cervellin, a sophomore at Franklin has a knee injury, and Jillian Knox, a junior at Elk Grove.

Follow the girls golf teams as they compete this season on both the Sports Corner and EGCitizen.com.
