Congratulations to our Little Sistas, Alicya Estrada, Alannah Howard-Lee, and Elizabeth Lenton. On Sunday, March 7, the Ace Kids Golf Program sponsored by various City organizations, held a tournament at Lake Chabot Golf Course. We are pleased to announce that Alannah Lee (far left) placed 2nd, and Elizabeth Lenton (center) placed 1st in the 17 yr. old & under Division. Pictured with Preston Pinkney, CEO for the Pinkney Foundation and tournament organizer. 64 Juniors participated in the tournament in multiple divisions.
Alannah Howard-Lee, granddaughter of SOTL member Althea Lee, was overjoyed with her trophy. Althea’s 9 year old grandson, Josiah Lee also played in the tournament. They drove from Elk Grove to participate in the tournament.
Volunteers Ora Anderson, Lynda Donahue, and Teresa Deloach Reed were volunteers for the tournament. Ora and Lynda were spotters on the 2nd hole of the short course. They witnessed the 11 yr old & under players tackle the steep uphill par 3. Teresa was a starter and spotter. The 8 yr old & Under Division was named after Teresa Deloach Reed, the first woman fire chief in Oakland and an avid golfer at Chabot Golf Course.
