Ashley Nguyen of Freedom High School and Skylar Sload of Briar Woods tied for 17th place with matching two-day totals of 166 at the 2016 VHSL Girls Golf Open Championship. Abby Bloom of Stone Bridge finished 20th in the tournament, contested Oct. 24-25 at International Country Club in Fairfax.

Danielle Suh of Westfield paced the field with an overall score of 157. Suh shot 78 on day one and 79 on day two. Erica Whitehouse of Atlee finished one shot behind in second place.

Shreya Ganta (175) of Riverside tied for 25th place, and Sydney Lanham (176) of Loudoun County tied for 27th place.

Hannah Jonely (190) of Broad Run and Lauren Chang (192) of Tuscarora also qualified and competed in the Girls Open Championship.

Stone Bridge coach Mark Mjoness described the conditions, "The weather was windy and chilly and the greens at International were very firm, and as a result, were putting extremely fast raising the scores across the field of 60 competitors."

Mjoness also praised Bloom, "Abby demonstrated excellent ball striking during both days of play ... she hit 68 percent of both her greens and fairways in regulation over the 36 holes of play. Abby's ball striking off the tee, and from the fairway, was very impressive."
