Sophomore Angelina Kim of Fairfax became the first girls' golfer in City Section history to win the CIF/SCGA So Cal Regional Golf Championship on Thursday at Canyon Crest Country Club.

She shot a 4-under 69 to tie Isabel Sy of Troy, then won in a playoff.

It's a remarkable achievement, considering last season she couldn't play because Fairfax didn't have a girls' golf team.

Winning a City Section cross country title for a second consecutive season would be very nice for Justin Hazell of El Camino Real, but he has much bigger ambitions.

He has his sights set on a state title, so don't expect him to go for any records when the city championships are held Nov. 18 at Pierce College.

He was on cruise control Wednesday at the prelims, qualifying in 16:10.93. Ben Hamer of Palisades had the fastest time of the day at 15:56.60 in his heat. Marvin Guardado of Birmingham also indicated he's going to provide competition with a time of 15:57.91. Matt Rios of Granada Hills was right behind at 15:58.80.
