Golden Valley girls golf really is the front-runner for the Foothill League title.

If one win doesn’t prove it, how about two.

For the first time in program history, the Grizzlies have won consecutive Foothill League matches, the latest coming Wednesday with a team score of 235 at par-36 Elkins Ranch in Fillmore.

On top of that, 2012 Foothill League Most Valuable Player runner-up Elisa Pierre finished with a medalist score of 38.

“The first match it showed this is possible. Now keeping this up we’re getting really serous about it,” Pierre said. “We have to keep on going and working hard. It gives us a lot of confidence.”

Two-time defending Foothill champion West Ranch, one week after finishing in third place, finished in second with a 245.

Ashley Mayall and Kate Caffrey each shot 41s.

Golden Valley’s next best scores after Pierre were Illeana Dullas with a 45 and Justine Reblando with a 47.

The difference was the last three scores for Golden Valley totalled 152 compared to West Ranch’s 163.

Hart and Valencia tied for third place, each with 252s.

Valencia sophomore Eunice Song finished second overall with a 40 and Hart’s Katie Corr tied for third with a 41.

Canyon shot a 282, led by Ashley Warner’s 52.

Saugus had 301, led by Clara Venger with a 48.

Golden Valley head coach Tony Moskal called this course the Grizzlies’ Achilles’ heel because of its length and hazards.

If the Grizzlies finished first on their toughest course, what’s that mean for the rest of league?

Moskal stopped short of thinking about the answer, repeating a mantra: “We’re happy. We’re not satisfied because even though we made up strokes today, someone can make those back up next week.”
