Boys golf finished with an impressive overall regular season record of 11-1, finishing first in league. Some key wins for the team included a huge win over Burlingame, a non-conference beat down against rivals Sacred Heart Prep, and two wins over a solid Aragon team. After this impressive regular season, the team brought six players to the Central Coast Section playoffs where the season ended as a team.
Sophomore Jackson Lee, who won the regular season PAL title and who advanced to the individual rounds of Nor Cals talked about his experience this year. He said, “ I thought the season was pretty excellent because our team won their third straight title in PAL, we swept our regular season PAL awards, and advanced in the playoffs which are all positives.” He added, “I am going to miss the personality and the way they [the seniors] carried themselves… and what they contributed to the team as individuals and as golfers.”
Senior Bill Kirkpatrick, who won the end of the season PAL championships and finished second in the regular season PAL title is a key part of the teams success this season. Bill talked about what it meant to be on the golf team. He said, “being on the golf team was probably one of my best experiences in high school. I grew so much and made so many great friends.” The golf team also played some away tournaments both at Palm Springs and Los Angeles this season. Bill talked about the experience saying, “my favorite part about the tournaments we had to travel to is how close we would all become to each other. We would all stay up late enjoying one another company and it was always a great time.”
Other notable achievements for individuals on the team were junior Jonathan Dicks who finished 4th in the end of season PAL championships. The Bears also placed third at the wildcat invitational, which was a non-league tournament in Marin. Even though the team had a disappointing end to the season, the sophomores and juniors from varsity are looking to build of their regular season success from this year and redeem themselves in playoffs next spring.
