Second crown in a row for former Centennial High player; Prince edges Gigi Stoll in women's final

EUGENE — Nick Chianello and Kendall Prince captured Oregon Amateur golf titles in their scheduled 36-hole finals on Saturday in the 104th rendition of the tournament.

Chianello, from Centennial High, was dominant as he defended his men's championship match with a 4-and-3 victory over medalist Thomas Lim of Moorpark, Calif.

Chianello just completed his career at Oregon State; Lim will be a freshman at Oregon.

Prince, a former Lakeridge High golfer entering her junior season at the University of Arizona, downed Beaverton High junior-to-be Gigi Stoll 3 and 1.

Prince also never trailed — but never led by more than three holes. She was 1 up after 18.

Chianello never trailed in the men's final and was 9 up after 16 holes.

He was 4 up through eight holes. After Lim won the 10th with a birdie, Chianello took six straight holes — 11 through 16. He had seven birdies and no bogeys at that point.

The first round ended with Chianello 7 up. Lim won holes 21-23 to get to 4 down, but Chianello claimed the next three holes and was never headed.

Chianello won the 2012 Am crown 4 and 3 over Tyler Falk at Tualatin Country Club. He transferred to OSU in 2010 after the University of Portland shut down its men's golf program.
