PREP GOLF . . . Gunn freshman Anna Zhou capped a sensational first season by tying for sixth at the CIF NCGA Girls State High School Championships on Tuesday at Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach. Zhou shot a 3-over par 75 on the par-72 layout that played 6,066 yards. She was only four shots behind Sarah Cho of Torrey Pines and Cha Cha Willhoite of Palm Desert. Both shot 1-under 71, with Cho winning the state title on the second playoff hole. Two players shot even-par 72 and one, Kathleen Scavo of Justin-Siena in Napa, came in at 74. Zhou tied with Samantha Martin or Torrance. Zhou was the No. 2 NorCal finisher behind Scavo and the top finisher from the Central Coast Section. CCS champ Hannah Suh of Evergreen Valley shot 78 and tied for 22nd.
