By The Staff

Tami Martinson took a solid lead after the opening round of the City Championship tournament and hung on through the second round to win her third straight title.
Martinson, who is on an exceptional run at the City tournament, shot a total of 165 this weekend, holding off a charge Sunday from Ev Griggs.
Griggs, the most decorated amateur golfer in Los Alamos County history and an 18-time winner of the City tournament, had a solid round of 82 Sunday to get within striking distance, but Martinson’s 84 gave her a three-stroke victory.
In the past three City tournaments, Martinson has won with solid numbers.
Martinson earned a five-shot win in 2010 and picked up a whopping 14-shot victory 2009, in which she broke 80 both days.
Her quest for a three-peat was aided in a big way Saturday with the first hole-in-one of her career. She rolled a shot straight into the cup off the eighth tee, 115 yards out.
For the tournament, Martinson posted the lowest and third-lowest rounds to complete her victory.
Griggs started Sunday tied for third place, one shot behind Anna Swertfeger, but was four strokes better than Swertfeger Sunday.
Swertfeger finished in third this weekend with 171 strokes.
