The Placer High girls golf team added a chapter to its history-making season Tuesday, winning the Sac-Joaquin Section Division III championship despite some tough conditions at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln. Hannah Gregg led the Hillgals as she fired a 20-over-par 92 while senior Sydney Ryan was close behind with a 95. Devin McFarland carded a 105 and Elia Rivas shot 106 for Placer. Carmelle Gross tossed in a 119 as Placer finished at 517 as a team. Whitney finished second in the seven-team field, finishing with a 549. Wildcat freshman Kelsey Ulep had a 74 to claim medalist honors. Placer advanced to the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Tournament, which will be held Monday at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton.
