Sierra High’s girls golf team teed off its Valley Oak League season with a 253-351 victory over Weston Ranch Monday at Manteca Park Golf Course.

Amanda Orr and Heather Schmitz anchored the Timberwolves from the middle group. Orr earned medalist honors with a 10-over-par 47, while Schmitz trailed the leader by a stroke.
