Wilson Golf Ali Morallos

Wilson High girls golf clinched its eighth consecutive Moore League team title by beating Long Beach Poly 221-247 on Tuesday at Recreation Park Golf Course.

Wilson (17-4, 8-0) was once again led by senior Ali Morallos who made one birdie and finished at 1-over par 39 to earn the medalist honors. Riley Henry added a round of 43 for the Bruins that included four pars, and Maya Olson was the low finisher for Poly with 45.

"We continue to be blessed with a group of dedicated players that are always putting in extra work to make sure they are prepared for competition,” Wilson coach Jeff Evans said.

Monday is the first day of the Moore League Individual Tournament where Morallos will try to win her third straight league title. Last year, she shot an 11-under (135) to post the lowest total score in league girls' golf history.

The first nine holes of the individual tournament will be at El Dorado Golf Course. Tuesday’s nine holes will be at Recreation Park Golf Course, and the final 18 holes played on Wednesday will be at Skylinks Golf Course.
