When the CIF Southern Section Girls' Golf Southern Individual Regional tournament gets underway Monday, Christianne Kinder will be carrying the Laguna Beach High banner at El Dorado Golf Course in Long Beach.
The senior is one of four athletes from the Golden West League to qualify for the tournament.
Kinder, team captain of the Breakers, finished third with a two-day 186 total at the conclusion of the Oct. 21 league finals at El Prado Golf Course in Chino. She also was in third place after league prelims on Oct. 20 at El Prado.
The top four finishers at the league tournament earned berths for the Southern Individual Regional.
"This is definitely exciting for me," said Kinder, a three-year varsity golfer who has made league finals every year but is advancing to CIF for the first time. "After seeing the other Laguna seniors from previous years make CIF, I really wanted to qualify for the tournament. I knew I had the potential and this was my senior year and my last shot.
