All-district returners

August 28, 2008 

• KRYSTA CLARK, East Union: Clark (above) has been a keystone on back-to-back Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV championships and shot a 78 to place second in the division tournament last season. A 1-over-par 73 earned Clark the title at the Sierra Invitational — ahead of Bee Player of the Year Julie Shutler of Sierra.

• BELEN HERNANDEZ, Golden Valley: She provided one of the top rounds in the district last fall, shooting a par 72 at Creekside Golf Course to win the Division I South Tournament by three strokes. Hernandez closed that event with two pars, capping a day that featured two birdies, two bogeys and 14 pars.

• KIRSTEN LOCKE, Bret Harte: The Mother Lode League MVP last season and three-time all-league selection, Locke placed second in the Division IV tournament, shot a 4-over 76 to finish second at the section Masters Tournament and placed 22nd in the Northern California Tournament.

• CHRISTINE UHALDE, Johansen: A two-time All-District performer, she led Johansen to Modesto Metro Conference Tournament titles the last two years. She was third in the MMC last year (79) and second (75) as a freshman. Her 76 was good for sixth in the section Division I South Tournament at Creekside last season.
