The USGA accepted a record 899 entries for the 2006 rendition.
The 15-year-old Cho, who attends Crescenta Valley High, had a fine showing at the USGA Junior Girls Amateur in Boulder City, Nev. She earned low-medalist honors when she fired a career-best score of four-under-par 68.
"Christine has been hitting the ball very well and she had a great round when she played in the amateur tournament," Meyer said. "This is her second year playing in the Junior Championship."
Crescenta Valley High graduate Trevor Bell, a former All-Area Player of the Year, had things working his way while pitching for the Orem Owlz on July 10.
Bell, who was drafted by the Los Angeles of Anaheim with the 37th pick overall in the 2005 Major League Baseball First-Year Draft, had a perfect game entering the fifth inning before giving up a double to Missoula's Shea McFeely.
Bell struck out seven and scattered two hits in 6 2/3 innings.
Missoula came back from a 2-0 deficit to post a 4--2 victory on a grand slam with two outs in the ninth by John Hester off reliever Darren O'Day.
Go North Young Man
The collegiate baseball career of recent St. Francis High graduate Christian Bergman got started a little sooner than expected.
On Thursday, the UC Irvine-bound Bergman boarded a plane for Anchorage, Alaska, to play for the Anchorage Bucs, one of six teams in the Alaska League ? a collegiate summer league.
The opportunity, set up by the UC Irvine coaching staff for Bergman, makes him the youngest player in the league. Bergman, who's listed as a pitcher, is joined, by future Irvine teammate Bryan Peterson, a sophomore outfielder.
As of Friday, the 13-10 Bucs were in third place and a game and a half out of first.
The regular season goes until July 28, with the championship Mayor's Cup ending it shortly thereafter.
