Kendall Dusenberry trailed both of her Hart teammates heading into Wednesday's final round of the Newhall Cup at The Tournament Players Club in Valencia.

But after 18 holes, the freshman beat both her talented sophomore teammates, winning with a 27-hole score of 113. The score was a record-low for the Newhall Cup, which was in its third year.

"She did a great job," Hart head coach Renee Onori said. "The wind was terrible. Some were at least five strokes off their average. It was that bad. I think we did a great job."

There were four Foothill League golf teams who played in the 27-hole tournament. Two others, Canyon and Golden Valley, both fielded individuals.

Amanda Corr, who led after Tuesday's nine-hole round with a 35, and Nikki Prichard, who had a 36, led Dusenberry.

But they did not lead after Wednesday.

Hart won the team championship with a score of 311, followed by Saugus with a 350. The girls played on the front nine holes on Tuesday and the back nine on Wednesday.

"We didn't do too well," Saugus head coach Stradling said. "Part of it was the wind was up. Nicole played really well today."

West Ranch wound up in third (373), Valencia came in fourth (396).

"The reality is we're at our peak right now," West Ranch head coach Jeff Holen said. "This is the first time we played the back row."

Next up is a big one for all the golfers is the Foothill League finals, which will tee off at 1 p.m. on Monday at Elkins Ranch Golf Course in Fillmore.

Centurion No. 1 golfer Tiara Wells shot a 118 to finish tied for second with Brenna Carlson of Hart, including a round of 81 on Wednesday.

Corr came in fourth with a result of 119, after she shot an 84 in the final round.

Prichard was close behind with a 120. Diane Kim of West Ranch shot a 128.

Sarah Kang of the Wildcats finished seventh (132).

Centurion golfer Nicole Francisco carded a two-day score of 134, including a 93 in the final round.
Brittany Suarez of Golden Valley scored a 46 and hit an 88 for a score of 134.

Catherine Walgamuth scored a 133 for Saugus.

Molly Cayson rounded out the top 10 with a 135.
