Thomson youngest Ladies Open champ

Call it the changing of the guard, or the start of a new era.

Whatever the case, you can call Chrissie Thomson the new Kitchen Creek Ladies Open champion after she carded an 80 for a three-stroke victory over perennial champ Joan Richardson last Saturday.

At just 16 years old, she’s also the youngest person ever to win the ladies’ event here.

Women’s soccer tourney now a go

After being cancelled late last week, the women’s local soccer tournament is on again as part of this weekend’s “Borderland Ball Blast ’99” with the surprise addition of a Dryden team.

But organizer Caroline Spencer warned as quickly as the tournament was reinstated, it can be axed again if Dryden opts not to make the trip here.
