STOCKTON — For golfers from Turlock High and Turlock Christian High, their season ended among the best golfers in the Sac-Joaquin Section.

At Monday’s Masters Tournament, which was set in nice, non-windy weather, Hannah Gong shot an impressive 13-over par 85 to finish as the top Turlock scorer at The Reserve at Spanos Park as her Bulldogs finished with a 466 — not enough to move on — and beating last year’s team score by 21 strokes. Teammate Kelsi Valenzuela was close behind with an 89.

Gong topped her score from last year by five strokes. Zara Lopez (90), Sofie Bates (97) and Darcy Woods (105) also contributed to the Bulldogs’ scoring. This was the second consecutive year the Bulldogs made it to the Masters.

Turlock Christian’s Esther Rojas, who competed as an individual because her school does not have a formal girls team, finished with an 89.

Three teams — Christian Brothers High (399), Lodi High (401) and St. Francis High (412) — advanced to next week’s NorCal Championships at Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto. Shawnee Martinez of Enochs High in Modesto and Paige Lee of Granite Bay High shared the individual title after both shooting an even-par 72.
