Pikesville senior Michelle Grilli's 1-under-par 71 took individual honors at the Baltimore County Golf Championships yesterday at Diamond Ridge Golf Course in Woodlawn.

Grilli was one of only two girls in the annual tournament for older, more experienced players in the county's public schools.

A separate tournament for girls learning the sport also was played yesterday at Gunpowder Falls Golf Course and won by Dulaney's Carolyn Chandler with an 81. Dulaney also took girls team honors with a 373.

Grilli, seeded ninth, edged Franklin's Tony Jaffa for the individual title by a stroke.

Dulaney took team honors at Diamond Ridge with a composite score of 348, edging Franklin and Pikesville by a single stroke.

Grilli is the second girl to win Baltimore County's top spot. Patapsco's Jessica Fernandez, the 1995 state high school champion, also won county honors, said Jeff Walen, Dundalk's athletic director and tournament director.
