Menlo's Sophie Siminoff earned medalist honors at the Helen Lengfeld girls golf tournament at Poplar Creek on Monday. St. Francis, led by Bibilani Liu, won the team title.

Siminoff earned medalist honors in a 108-player field after she shot an even-par 71, which included four birdies.

Castilleja's Niav Layton shot a 73 to finish in a second-place tie.

Menlo's Gianna Inguagiato finished in an eighth-place tie, shooting a 75.

The Lancers, two-time defending Central Coast Section champions, won the tournament title for the third straight year.

Valley Christian placed second, followed by Palo Alto.

The Vikings were led by Katherine Sung (76) and Stephanie Yu (77).

Sacred Heart Prep placed fourth, followed by Castilleja. Gunn was seventh and Menlo-Atherton finished 13th.

Lauren Von Thaden and Cami Steppe each shot an 80 to lead SH Prep. Gunn was led by Lydia Tsai's 81.

Divya Tadimeti (80) and Risa Yamg (81) helped Castilleja.

The Knights played short-handed as two players had previous academic commitments, so the girls competed as individuals.

"The girls showed a lot of pride and determination in the swirling winds .. it made club selections difficult," Menlo coach Jim Miller said."Our discussions on the mental approach and course management are really paying dividends. The girls effort bodes well for the rest of our dual matches and the playoffs."
