Monday's three-way girls golf match between Castilleja, Menlo School and Harker-San Jose, to be played on the Stanford golf course, should be highly competitive considering that all three teams involved still have a chance to win the West Bay Athletic League regular-season title.

Castilleja made it intriguing by beating The Kings Academy, 207-301, at Sunnyvale Muni on Tuesday. Gators' Divya Tadimeti converted an eagle and birdie to earn medalist honors with a 1-under 34 to lead the way.

Castilleja (11-1) beat Menlo, 198-220, on Monday and lost to Harker, 194-196, earlier in the season. Harker and Menlo (9-2) have completed their season series, which they split.

The Eagles (7-1) also play Sacred Heart Prep (3-7) on Monday. The WBAL, hit with air quality index issues like other leagues, is cramming all the rescheduled matches in hopes of concluding the 14-match season by Oct. 23, so the league tournament can be played as scheduled on Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Harker was scheduled to meet Sacred Heart Prep on Tuesday and also has a match against the Gators scheduled for Monday.

Menlo completes the regular season with a three-way match against Notre Dame-Belmont and Mercy-Burlingame on Thursday. Harker meets the same two teams on Friday.

Against TKA, Castilleja freshman Kelly Yu turned in a round of 39 and Alyssa Sales came in with a 40. Completing the scoring were a nice 43 from senior co-captain, Anika Tse and freshman rookie Lishan Carroll’s low score to date of 51.
