Caponi captained a team of Yin, Angella Then and Megan Kim, who combined for a team-score of 10-under par to capture the win in the team portion of the event as well. A $10,000 donation to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the charity of Caponi's choice, was made in their honor.
"My mother passed away from breast cancer so it's really special for me to get to help such a wonderful cause," said Caponi.
The 30 girls were selected to participate in the event by a committee led by SCGA Youth on Course, the charitable arm of the Southern California Golf Association. The juniors were chosen based on their golf resumes, community involvement and leadership activities. SCGA Youth on Course, which also provided tournament support for the event, was awarded a $10,000 grant for its involvement.
