Parkhurst, McKee take golf medalist honors

Citizen Staff Writer



Cienega High’s School Kevin Parkhurst finished at 2-under-par 106 to win the individual title in the weekend’s 20-team, 27-hole Dorado Invitational boys golf tournament at the Rio Rico Country Club.

Parkhurst followed a par 36 on Friday with a 2-under 70 on Saturday to best the field of 125 golfers and help Cienega to a team score of 484 to tie for sixth place with host Canyon del Oro.

Catalina Foothills, led by second-place individual finisher Billy Flower’s par 108, won the event with a team score of 449. The Falcons had a nine-shot cushion over second place Ironwood Ridge (458).

Sierra Vista Buena was third (462), followed by Flagstaff Sinagua (477) and Cave Creek Cactus Shadows (481).

On the girls side of the tournament, Catalina Foothills (482) edged Avondale Westview (464).

Foothills’ top four golfers grabbed the top four spots.

Brittany McKee won the event with a 117, followed by Morgan McClure (120), Laura Jabczenski (121) and Erin McClure (124).

Girls volleyball

The Amphi girls volleyball team remains undefeated in matches that count, but was swept Saturday in the championship match of the Mountain View Invitational by Gilbert Mesquite 2-0 (25-20, 25-14).

Tournament and invitational events such as the weekend’s 21-team Mountain View Invitational do not count toward a school’s official record that determines region standings or state playoff positioning. In those matches, Amphi still boasts an unblemished 12-0 record.

Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep, the defending Class 4A Division II state champion, beat Catalina in the third place match.


Marana won the co-ed Dorado Relays swim meet Saturday at the James Kreigh pool.

The Tigers’ score of 291 edged second-place Ironwood Ridge (279) and host CDO (276).

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
