    Nguyen's putter leads Mater Dei to victory

    September 25th, 2013, 9:27 pm by By DAMIAN DOTTORE

    The technique was there, but the focus might have been lacking, so Monarchs coach Ollie Martin had Ashley Nguyen spend most of her time Monday on the practice green, standing over putts of different length putts with a variety of challenging breaks.

     “We were getting her to go through the drills where you have to make every single putt, so that when you switch over to a match you can make it,” Martin said. “So I am happy to hear what she went out and did today.”

     It only took 13 putts for Nguyen to get around the front nine on a breezy day at Western Hills Country Club, and she medaled for the third time this season, shooting a 4-over-par 39 for the Monarchs (7-0, 3-0) to lead Mater Dei to a 211-247 Trinity League victory against Rosary.

     Nguyen came into the match ranked second on the team in scoring, averaging 38.2 for a nine-hole match, which is about three strokes better than what she did last season as a sophomore.

    “ She has improved tremendously. She seems always to handle the pressure for us real well," Martin said. "This is really an encouraging sign for us. And the team looks really, really good this year. It is a team with potential, enough to win a CIF title I think.”

    Releaguing: Principals approve Century conference, Yorba Linda only school moved

    March 28th, 2013, 12:53 pm by DAN ALBANO,

    IRVINE Orange County principals voted during their final re-leaguing meeting Thursday to create a conference out a slightly new-look Century League that adds Yorba Linda.

    The eight-school conference will add Yorba Linda to the existing group of Brea, Foothill, Villa Park, El Modena, Esperanza, Canyon and El Dorado. The conference gives the Century the ability to create two separate football leagues, for example, or operate two leagues under the banner of the conference.

    South County's Coast View Athletic Association also features a conference configuration with the South Coast and the Sea View leagues.

    Yorba Linda opposed the move and was the only school moved in the county's re-leaguing recommendation for the 2014-2018 cycle. The recommendation needs to be approved by the CIF-Southern Section council.

    The final proposal had a big-time rival today but county leagues appear as if they will remain the same - except for the Century conference.
