Ashley, a 10-year-old fourth-grader at Highland Oaks Elementary, competed in the 12--14 age division in this year's Southern California PGA Junior tour and won six tournaments, finishing first in total points. She earned player of the year honors and an invitation to the Toyota Tour Cup Series in August.
