PREP ROUNDUP: Turlock’s Streeter swings Div. II golf championship

NICOLAUS — Turlock High’s Sydney Streeter captured the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II girls golf championship with her round of 74 on Monday at River Oaks Golf Club.

“This was such a great way to close out her career,” said THS golf coach Mary Krupka. “Sydney was solid. She’s really steady out there and stays calm. It’s always hard to know how she’s doing because she keeps such an even keel throughout the whole match.”

Streeter, a senior who was named MVP of the Central California Athletic League as a sophomore, finished two strokes ahead of Gregori’s Mimi Whang and Inderkum’s Madison Whitney. 

Savannah Van Gaalen, the reigning CCAL most valuable player, tied for fifth with her round of 81.

Turlock won the team title last year, but fell three strokes short of claiming back-to-back banners. Inderkum (Sacramento) finished first with a team tally of 415, while Turlock finished at 418. 

By virtue of their second-place finish, Turlock advances to next week's Masters tournament at the Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton.

Sophomore Frankie-Marie Ronveaux helped the Bulldogs’ cause with a career-best 91.
