San Clemente resident Emily Lichty teed it up alongside some of the top amateur players from the area at the 94th Los Angeles City Women’s Golf Championship July 10-12 and came away with a solo 18th-place finish.

The three-round tournament took place at the historic Rancho Park Golf Course.

Lichty, a soon-to-be senior at San Juan Hills High School, opened the tournament with rounds of 78-77 to put her at 8-over-par. After making the cut, Lichty carded an 82 (+9) to finish with a total score of 237.

Alice Jeong, a junior on the Cal Berkeley women’s golf team, won the event with a 2-under score of 217.

Lichty had a breakout junior season for the Stallions that saw her medal six times and place fifth in the South Coast League finals. Lichty also qualified for CIF-SS Individual play in 2014.
