The Torrance Tartars have produced some top golf talent, both boys and girls. Like her teammate, Jane Rah, Shin was an integral part of Torrance's success this year. In the state tournament, where Rah finished No. 3, Shin came out on top -- winning in a playoff to capture individual state honors.
Courtney Gunter (Porter Ridge, Matthews, N.C.), Senior
Gunter is off to play for her home state North Carolina Tar Heels next year. In 2008, she won her third straight North Carolina 1A/2A/3A championship.
