Local roundup: Bruins tee off in final PVL meet

Bear River’s Ashlee Andrews finished sixth overall Tuesday at the Sac-Joaquin Section Divisionals, held at Lockeford Springs Golf Course in Lodi.

Andrews shot a round of 93 on the par-72 course, which Bruins coach Gayne Nakano described as more difficult than what his team has faced this season.

“That was one of her better rounds,” Nakano said. “The course was tougher than the ones that we’ve been playing.”

Bear River finished fifth as a team in its final competition, as Stacey Tudor finished with 111, Stephanie Ursiny shot 116, and Kenzie Billings and Katey Corippo each shot 123.

In her first match playing singles, No. 6 Hayley Zucca fell 6-2, 6-2, but Nevada Union coach Mike Blake still praised her performance.

“She did a good job for the first match she ever played at singles,” Blake said.

Brittanie Miller lost at No. 1, 6-3, 6-3. No. 2 Kayla Allen was the only Miner to win a game, but following her game-two, 6-0 victory, an injury forced her to retire.
