Amanda Corr becomes the second member of her extended family to win an All-SCV Golfer of the Year award. Her cousin Nick Delio won the boys award in 2006 and 2007.

Just two years into her high school golf career, Hart's Amanda Corr has gone through two year-end battles.

Both battles were for the same moniker - best girls prep golfer in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Both battles were decided by a slim margin.

In 2007, Corr became the Foothill League Most Valuable Player, but Valencia's Jasnin Samson was better in the postseason - slightly.

This year, Corr was edged for the Most Valuable Player by freshman teammate Kendall Dusenberry.

Dusenberry beat Corr out by one stroke.

Then Corr turned it on.

The sophomore finished first at the Foothill League Finals to begin her tear.

Corr was outstanding both the CIF individual and team playoffs.

She shot a valley-best 76 at the par-72 Soule Park Golf Club in the CIF-Southern Section Northern Individual Regional Nov. 3.

Just three days later, she shot a 74 to tie for 10th overall at the CIF-Southern Section Individual Final and WSCGA Qualifying Tournament.

On Nov. 17, Corr had one of her finest performances of the year, only to leave the course crushed.

Her 74 at the 2008 CIF-WSCGA Foundation Girls' Regional Golf Championship at Canyon Crest Country Club in Riverside was just two strokes off of a trip to the CIF State Final.

It marked the end of her sophomore season, but there were other highlights.

The 76 she shot Nov. 10 was the best Indians score at the CIF-Southern Section Northern Team Divisional at River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard. The Indians became the first girls golf team in valley history to win a CIF divisional championship.

During the Foothill League season, Corr was medalist three times.

She shot a league and course record 4-under 29 at Vista Valencia Golf Course Oct. 14.

The Indians as a team had a historic golf season.

And yet they may be just starting.

The team is built around three sophomores and one freshman.

The core of that team, though, has to be one person.

Based off consistency and production, it's a girl named Amanda - Amanda Corr, our 2008 All-Santa Clarita Valley Girls Golfer of the Year.
