The course features long par 4s and par 5s, multiple forced carries, along with a number of water and marsh features. The rolling greens were fast, and with perfect weather, the course played great. Cardinal Newman High School in Santa Rosa finished first, with Alyssa Lim from James Logan high school in Union City finishing first individually with a 72.

Coach Howard Oliver said that “Mei earning her way here (NCS) individually should be exalted around school and in the community. Mei’s a player — the moment is never too big for her. She enjoys the game for the right reasons. Coming here (NCS), she sees what she can aspire to if she chooses.”
