By Jeremy Balan

A thick, low-lying fog obscured the final group coming off Fleming Golf Course at the end of the Academic Athletic Association girls golf championship, but one fact was crystal clear.

Lincoln senior Kristi Wong carved out her own spot in AAA history by becoming just the second player to win three straight San Francisco Section individual titles with a 9-over-par 69 on the executive course within Harding Park on Monday.

Girls Golf: Wong sisters lead Lincoln to undefeated AAA season

By Jeremy Balan

The biggest rivalry in Academic Athletic Association girls golf isn’t between two teams.

It’s between two players, and they share the same last name.

Sisters Shannon and Kristi Wong of Lincoln High School have been the best two individual AAA players for the past two seasons, and led the Mustangs to an undefeated league season this year, capped by a 192-244 win over Wallenberg on Monday at Golden Gate Park Golf Course.
