Vigna shot a 2-over par 74 in the second round on Tuesday at Soule Park in Ojai and finished with a 36-hole total of 1-over 145, eight shots better than second-place Gabby Minier of DP. Julia Forster of the Chargers — last year's co-champion with Vigna —came in third at 158, Addie Anderson was fourth at 165 and Hannah Cho of DP placed fifth with a 168.

The top four players advance to the CIF-Southern Section Individual Championships and the top five earn first-team All-Channel League honors.

Vigna was in command for the entire 36 holes.

"Honestly, more than anything, Bella is just amazingly steady," DP coach Rob Schiff said. "I’ve never coached a player who so consistently strikes the ball on the center of the club face. She is a terrific ball striker."

Schiff said Vigna hasn't expressed an interest in playing college golf. 

"As good as she is, at this point she isn’t interested in college golf," he said. "She is an excellent student, as well, and is more focused on academics. 

"She has gotten to the place she is by working hard and focusing on improving," he added. "She thinks the game well and just plays her own game, regardless of what’s going on around her. 

"She’s a great kid and she is a great teammate."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
