Bishop Diego’s Marisa Mancinelli qualified for the CIF Northern Regional by winning a playoff at the Tri-Valley League individual tournament at River Ridge Golf Course on Wednesday

Mancinelli carded a two-day total of 128 to tie with Rylie Singleton of Foothill Tech and won the playoff for the CIF berth and all-league first-team honors.

Marisa’s sister Amy Mancinelli shot a 143 to finish eighth and earn second-team all-league honors.

Hannah Hart of Foothill Tech was the tournament medalist with a 115.

Coach Mike Cano said Marisa Mancinelli missed qualifying for CIF by one stroke the last three years.

“She battled and competed all season long and her determination and commitment to her game this year has paid off,” he said. “Amy, a sophomore who also plays volleyball at the same time, had to quickly learn and develop countless life skills, including time management, multi-tasking and discipline to balance her season and did a wonderful job on the golf course.”
