Floyd Takes On Division V Golf Championships
It has been a long and successful varsity golf career for Riverbank High senior, Courtney Floyd.

The talented standout on the links wrapped up her Valley Foothill League career with a fourth place overall finish among 42 scoring golfers at the VFL North championships on Monday, Oct. 18.

Floyd's 101-stroke performance was just one stroke short of third place, three swings shy of second and not far from league champion, Presli Pilati of Escalon.

Floyd, who shot a 112 at the Spring Creek Country Club to finish 10th out of 42 at last year's VFL finals, now enjoys consecutive seasons with postseason advancements.

This year's mark left Floyd with an easy qualification to Monday's (Oct. 25) Sac-Joaquin Section Division V championships in Galt at the Dry Creek Ranch Golf Club, though results were not available at press time.

Floyd's score led Riverbank to a 512-stroke finish as a team, just one shot from tying fourth place Linden and well below sixth place Ripon Christian and seventh place Calaveras.

Carlye Avey ended in 120 strokes at the VFL finals, while Kayla Page shot a 137 and Ashley Watanabe a 143. Amanda Lopez (151) and Aimee Lopez (155) wrapped up scoring for the Bruins.

Escalon's Pilati nabbed honors for the league's most outstanding golfer, while Floyd was named as an All VFL performer.

The top team and three individuals advance from D-V action to the SJS Masters at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton on Nov. 1. If Escalon wins D-V, Floyd has a good shot of joining the Pilati sisters (Presli and Parker, also a VFL All-Leaguer) in a trip to Masters for a well-represented VFL North group.
