RIPON — The atmosphere was a little more relaxed than usual for a live match at Jack Tone Golf Course Tuesday, but it might be what the golfers from Ripon High and rival Ripon Christian need going into today’s Valley Football League Midseason Tournament.

Ripon improved to 5-1 with a 186-204 win, keeping pace with North Division-leading Escalon. Ripon Christian fell to 0-6.

 “They’re playing solid golf,” Ripon coach Eric Dambrosio said. “They’re still making some of the same mistakes, but the cool thing is that after we talk about them they learn from it, and it’s what’s ultimately going to make them better players.

Senior Sam Conway and sophomore Haylee Fannin shared medalist honors with a 9-over-par 40 while battling through gusty conditions. Ripon Christian’s Jenny Wickham carded the third best score with a 44.

Also scoring for the second-place Indians were Stefani Hofman and freshman Sienna Starck with a 49 and 57, respectively.

Raeanne DeRousse (51), Joie Darretta (55) and Jill Koetsier (54) rounded out the score for RC.

The league’s first of two tournaments begins with an 11 ‘clock shotgun start this morning at Greenhorn Creek Golf Course in Angels Camp.
