As expected, the Palo Alto girls golf team received an at-large berth for the Central Coast Section Championships and will tee it up alongside rival Gunn on Tuesday at Rancho Canada (East Course) in Carmel Valley.
A handful of local golfers also received at-large individual berths and will compete. Naomi Lee and Abbey Pederson will represent Menlo-Atherton, Jessie Rong of Menlo School will tee it up and Jessica Koenig of Sacred Heart Prep will shoot for an individual berth for NorCals.
In addition to Gunn and Palo Alto, Castilleja also will compete in the team competition.
Gunn will have Jayshree Sarathy, Anna Zhou, Tiffany Yang, Lianna McFarlane-Connelly, Sandra Herchen and Margaret Redfield; Palo Alto's roster includes Michelle Xie, Annie Chen, Emily Hwang, Audrey Horn, and Celia Wilner; while Castilleja will have Chloe Sales, Nicole and Danielle Mitchell, Colby Choi, Paris Wilkerson and Ellie Zales, the latter of whom is among the final foursome that tees off at 10 a.m.
The top three teams and the top four individuals not on those qualifying teams will advance to the 14th annual NCGA/CIF High School Girls Golf Championships at Spring Creek Golf and Country Club in Ripon on Nov. 4.
Gunn reached NorCals last season after finishing second in the team competition, finishing just a stroke behind team champ Valley Christian. Castilleja was fifth. Gunn's Zhou is the defending individual champion after shooting 68 last year.
Palo Alto High grad Davante Adams set a school record during Fresno State's 35-28 victory over San Diego State at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
Adams, a redshirt sophomore wide receiver, caught 12 passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns. The TD receptions give him 27 for his career, in just 20 games, to break the Fresno State record. He now has caught nine TD passes in his past three games and is tied for the NCAA lead for touchdown catches with 13 and ranks second in the nation with 72 receptions.
Fresno St. quarterback David Carr became the school recordholder in total offense with 10,470 after throwing for 298 yards.
Former Stanford All-American and three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings joined with April Ross to win the season-ending FIVB World Tour beach volleyball stop in Xiamen, China. The victory gives Walsh Jennings a record 113 tournament titles. She had been tied with her former partner, Misty May-Treanor, with 112. May-Treanor retired after she and Walsh Jennings won the Olympic gold medal in London in 2012.
Menlo School graduate Jack Foley, a senior and co-captain of the Dartmouth College men's club team helped the Big Green win a second straight New England Conference Championship with a 7-3 win over Boston College at Wesleyan University on Sunday.
Foley scored the first goal in the title match, which saw Dartmouth finish 12-0 in conference. The Big Green will be the No. 5 seed at the club National Championships in San Diego, Nov. 8-10.
David Rozenfeld, another Menlo School graduate, is a freshman on the Dartmouth team, as well, and has proven to be a valuable substitute this season.
