The Bear River girls golf team solidified its Pioneer Valley League dominance Monday with its second league tournament win and, in the process, clinched the league title.

Playing at the par-74 Diamond Oaks Golf Course in Roseville, Bear River blew away the competition with a team score of 484, 15 strokes better than runner-up Placer. Lincoln finished in third with a 505, Colfax was fourth with a 559, and Center forfeited due to lack of players.

The tourney victory was Bear River’s second of the season to go with an 8-0 league record.

Leading the way for Bear River, as she has all season, was Jessica Pisenti with a team-low 84, Shelby Lampson shot a personal-best 86, Cassie Smith notched a 93, Malone Pearson finished with a personal-best 104, and Margie Oxley also shot a personal-best with a 117.

The Lady Bruins will now gear up for the divisional tournament Monday at Empire Ranch Golf Club in Folsom.
