Ripon’s girls golf team is well on its way to repeating as Valley Foothill League North Division champion after another convincing win over second-place Escalon on Thursday.

The undefeated Indians won 159-184 at Jack Tone Golf Course, padding their lead after winning the mid-season tournament earlier in the week.

Low medalist Gabbi Ilardi continued her tear through league competition, finishing 1-over 32. She was the only VFL North player to score under par in the mid-season event at Manteca Park Golf Course on Monday with a 71.

Runner-up Katie Martin added a 38, Anna Fisher a 44 and Vivian Parsons a 45. Escalon was led by Lucy Allbaugh’s 39.
