Section Golf Finals Lose in Scheduling Conflict

November 16, 2000|PETER YOON and GARY KLEIN

Many of the top girls' golfers in Southern California will skip the Southern Section Individual championships next Tuesday and will instead play in the AJGA Polo Golf Junior Classic in Florida, which begins the same day.

The AJGA tournament is among the most prestigious junior tournaments in the nation and falls on Thanksgiving week each year. Two years ago, the same conflict resulted in the same problem: a watered down field at the Southern Section championships.

Among those who qualified for the Southern Section finals this year but will not play are junior All-American selections Ina Kim of Harvard-Westlake, Erica Blasberg of Corona, Elena Kurokawa of Redondo Union and Stella Lee of Irvine.

Southern Section Commissioner Jim Staunton said the section golf committee has discussed moving the section finals to a different week in future years but that might necessitate playing the team divisionals and the team finals in the same week.
