Del Oro grabs 1st SFL golf tourney
One of the lowest 18-hole tournament totals that Del Oro High’s golf team has posted in recent years helped propel the Golden Eagles to an impressive victory Monday at the Sierra Foothill League’s No. 1 tournament of the year.
Playing at the par 72 Sierra View Country Club in Roseville, Del Oro placed four of its golfers among the first nine for a 369 total and best second place finishing Granite Bay by 14 strokes.
“It’s one of the lowest 18 hole tournament totals I can remember for us,” said Del Oro coach Hal Steinback. “It was a very good effort by the boys.”
Leading Del Oro’s win was Bobby Mullen who carded a three-under-par 69 for medalist honors. He was followed in by Josh Sedeno, a freshman with a 72, Justin Raskin with a 73, Louie Euer with a 75, Jahaan Nargussi with an 80 and Ryan Takayama with a non-scoring 86.
Del Oro won’t have much time to savor its win, however, as the Golden Eagles play host to Granite Bay Tuesday at Turkey Creek. After hosting Roseville on Thursday, the Golden Eagles will then play at the prestigious CAL Invitational Saturday at Graeagle near Quincy.
