You could call it a practice round, nonetheless there was a lot to play for Thursday at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente during the CIF-Southern Section Girls Golf Individual Championship.

The championship serves as a qualifier for the third round of the individual postseason — the WSCGA Foundation Southern California Girls Golf Championship, which is a dual team and individual match.

Since Hart’s girls golf team has already qualified for the WSCGA, its players will compete for the individual title and a chance to make the individual state championship.

That didn’t stop Hart junior Brenna Carlson from continuing her solid, consistent individual play, though.

Carlson shot an even-par 72 and tied for eighth Thursday, five strokes off the event’s winner Emily Tubert of Burroughs High of Burbank.

She and teammate Amanda Corr, who shot a 76, made the cut to advance to the WSCGA.

Nikki Prichard (83) and Kendall Dusenberry (84) missed the cut, but will participate in the WSCGA anyway.

Carlson has been steady throughout the playoffs, posting a career-best 71 on Nov. 3 in the first round of the individual postseason at Ojai’s Soule Park and two 74s in the team postseason.

She made three birdies and three bogeys Thursday.

But Carlson realizes that if she wants to win one of these events, she’s going to have to break into the 60s.

“I definitely think I can,” she said. “I’m not going to go out and focus just on that and beat myself up if I don’t get in the 60s, (though).”

What’s stopping Carlson from breaking into the 60s, she says, are the par-3s.

She says she has been overshooting them of late.

But Carlson said she would be more satisfied with a team state championship than an individual crown.

Hart’s in the running as it is one match short of reaching the team state championship.

Yet, at least one Hart golfer has motivation to get to the individual final.

Corr made it to the WSCGA last year, but fell two strokes short of making the state championship.

The WSCGA will be played Monday at The SCGA Golf Course in Murrieta.
