Before the new season started, Reedley College women's golf coach Scott Stark predicted big things from freshman Monica Yu of San Diego.
He was right.
Yu led the Lady Tigers to the team championship of the Desert Classic at Tahquitz Creek GC in Palm Springs by taking medalist honors with rounds of 73 and 71 for 2-under 144. Precious Saelee of Mt. SAC was second at 147.
As a team, Reedley rolled to the team championship with scores of 316-293--609, 26 shots ahead of second-place Desert. Modesto was third at 645.
Sophomore Serena DiMauro tied for third with a 78-74-152 while freshman Mya Xhao tied for fifth at 83-72-155.
Reedley returned to action on Sept. 3 with a dual match with Fresno City and Taft before hosting a Big 8 Conference tournament at the Kings River GC in Kingsburg at 2 pm Thursday.
