Freshman Zoe Campos of West Ranch won the CIF state individual girls' golf championship on Tuesday by shooting a 2-under 69 at Poppy Hills.

She was four strokes ahead of her nearest competitor, Brianna Navarrosa of Chula Vista Mater Dei.

Campos, a UCLA commit, played in the U.S. Women's Amateur last summer. Imagine what she might accomplish over the next three years at West Ranch.

There was zero clouds and the sun warmed up a once chilly morning for the opening day of high school baseball on Saturday.

In Orange County, Erik Tolman of El Toro showed he’s more than ready to take over as the star player for the defending Division 1 champions. He hit two home runs and struck out eight in five shutout innings in a 2-0 victory over El Dorado and standout pitcher Kyle Luckham. Chase Luttrell struck out three to pick up the save.

In Woodland Hills, it was a battle of young guns.

Standout defensive back/receiver Ja’lani Ellison of Reseda finally signed his scholarship papers with Wyoming on Friday.

For Arreola, it was a celebration. He promised to do whatever he could to make sure college coaches were aware of Ellison, who ignored attempts to lure him away. He stayed for four years and helped the Regents achieve football success.

Saturday’s Open Division matchups in girls’ basketball present some great games in the Southern Section and City Section.

At Cal Baptist

Windward vs. Mater Dei, 2 p.m. Charisma Osborne of Windward is the most exciting junior player in California. She plays defense, shoots from three-point range, drives, dishes and leads. And she has a great supporting cast. Mater Dei is a young team with a terrific future. The question is: Can the Monarchs win a championship a year ahead of schedule? The pick: Windward.
