Kaylie Grimes recorded her best round of the season, but it wasn’t enough to knock off a balanced Sierra lineup.

Grimes carded a 45, easily earning medalist honors.

“That was her best round of the year,” Manteca coach Dave Asuncion said. “She’s really starting to play well.”

However, it was a pair of 50s by Lexi Barnes and McKenna Doyle that anchored Sierra’s 272-275 Valley Oak League dual win at Manteca Park Golf Course on Tuesday afternoon.

Vanessa Rodriguez contributed a 55 for the Timberwolves, now 7-2 in league play.

Katie Hankins had a 51 and Dom Graham a 54 for the Buffaloes (3-6), who lost for the sixth time in nine league matches.

Kimball 264, Weston Ranch DQ

In Stockton, Kimball posted the top-five individual scorers on a day when it needed only a full lineup to beat Weston Ranch.

The Cougars dressed only four players after two were ruled out with back injuries. That forced a disqualification. Freshman Sierra Strambler led Weston Ranch with a personal-best 61.

Kimball’s Savannah Dunaway was medalist with a 48.

Valley Foothill League

Escalon 167, Ripon 182

Ripon’s Sienna Starck shot an 8-over 39 in blustery conditions at Jack Tone Golf Course, edging Escalon’s top golfers for low-round honors.

Piper Rockwell and Molly Landon had matching 41s for the Cougars, which improved to 5-0 in the Valley Foothill League.

Hailey Rae Rose had a 45, Sierra Atilano a 48 and Klaire Weaver a 50 for the Indians (3-2).

“I’d say everyone was 10 strokes higher because of the wind. It wasn’t easy. It was a tough day,” said Ripon coach Eric Dambrosio.

Hilmar 233, Ripon Christian 292

Ripon Christian struggled to navigate Stevinson Ranch’s links-style course and fell to 0-4 on the season.

Kaitlyn Groshong led the Knights with a 56. Makena Azevedo earned medalist honors with a 47 and Hilmar improved to 5-0.
