Ava O fired a 3-over par total 146 At Raven's Claw and Turtle Creek to win the District Title by two strokes.  A three-way tie with three holes to play quickly turned in Ava's favor with a birdie on the 16th and a two stroke lead that was not relinquished.  She now makes a return trip to States on October 20th.  Good luck Ava!
