The Lasers, ranked No. 1 in the state, turned what appeared to be a close conference match against Saddleback and Cuyamaca into a rout.

Irvine Valley finished with a score of  298, which was one shot better than its record-setting effort of 299 just last week in San Diego.

Saddleback finished at 321 and Cuyamaca scored 377 in the match. Irvine Valley picked up wins against both schools.

Irvine Valley sophomore Kate Cho was the medalist for the first time this season. She finished with a score of 72.  Her six birdies was also a conference record. 

Cho's round included three birdies on the front nine and three birdies on the back nine on Oak Creek's very challenging course. Cho had three birdies, four pars and two bogeys in playing the final nine holes at 1 under par.

Defending conference player of the year Sally Kim shot a score of 73.

Kim had one birdie and nine pars over the final 10 holes, and like Cho, played the last nine holes at 1 under par.

Freshman Taylor Shweiki posted a score of 74. 

After struggling on her first three holes, Shweiki played the next 15 holes at 1 under par. 

Her round included an eagle. She also had three birdies over the final 12 holes.

Freshman Vanessa Honnes posted a final score of 79. She five-putted and earned a double bogey on the opening hole, but then regained control of her game. He round included two birdies.

Sophomore Halle Young's 82 and freshman Shaiyana Sam's 89 were the team throw-out scores.

Irvine Valley next plays a four-way conference match at the Los Serranos North Course on Monday.
