The only reason the Hart girls golf team didn't break another school record in Monday's Foothill League Finals match was because they didn't have a record from last season to compare it to.

The reason - this time last year the league match was cancelled due to the fires that enveloped the valley.

However, this season, Hart was in full force, clinching the league title at Elkins Ranch Golf Course.

The team shot a score of 206 on the par-36 course, led by its powerful duo of Kendall Dusenberry and Amanda Corr.

The two finished as co-medalists with the best round. Dusenberry, a freshman, and Corr the defending league Most Valuable player shot a 39.

"This team broke every record that every team in the Foothill League set before," said Hart head coach Renee Onori. "They did a great job. They're young and they showed a lot of growth."

During the Indians run to Monday's finals, they broke a record in every league match they played. One of those records included boasting three rounds at or below 35 on the par-33 nine-hole course at Vista Valencia in the leagues first match.

"It's amazing that every time we go out to play we shoot a lower score than last year," Onori added.

The Indians were dominant in every league match this season. In all four matchups, a Hart player finished as a medalist. This was the second time Corr and Dusenberry finished as co-medalists.

Onori, who was familiar with Dusenberry's game before she joined the Indians team, said besides being a great player, the freshman is also a great leader.

"She's a great contributor to the team," Onori said. "She has such a positive attitude and it's unbelievable for such a young lady to bring so much to the team."

Dusenberry's performances this season have already qualified her to move on the CIF-Northern Section Individuals Tournament on Nov. 3. Her teammates will be vying for a spot as they compete in the league individuals match which will take place on Thursday at the Valencia Country Club.

In other action from Elkins Ranch, Saugus finished in second place with a score of 235. West Ranch finished third (236), Valencia was fourth (272), Golden Valley was fifth (330) and Canyon finished last (335).

West Ranch's Sarah Kang came in third place behind Corr and Dusenberry turning in a 41, while Saugus' Tiara Wells shot a 43 to finish fourth.
