It seems as if every week the Islanders Girls Golf team seems to one-up themselves, and this week was no exception. With a 2-0 week, the Islanders capped off a 9-1 record in league play, a regular-season record of 14-5, and captured its third consecutive Western League title. A massive accomplishment for a team that has simply dominated all season and nearly every opponent who has dared to play them.
To start off their week, the Islanders defeated Our Lady Of Peace by a score of 208-218 at the River Walk Golf Course. Leading the way for Coronado was Ines Izuzquiza, who carded a one-under-par, 35 and took home the lowest score of any player in the field. Following right behind were Jasmine Lo and Bella Villarin who both posted rounds of two over, 38. Finishing off the day Natalia Avanni, who shot a 49, Malia Perry, who shot a 48, and Mariella Avanni, who shot a 52.
For the final regular-season match of the 2021 season, the Islanders traveled to the Chula Vista Golf Course. The medalist and low scorer of the day was Villarin who posted a 36. The next lowest scores were Mariella Avanni with a 24, Perry with a 44, and Natalia Avanni with a 48, all culminating in a smooth and easy 216-241 victory for the Islanders and helping to lower the team differential to 27.34.
With the Western League title and a 14-5 record in their back pocket, the Islanders will now have CIF playoffs and the postseason to look forward to. First, up will be the Western League tournament, which will take place at Balboa Golf Course. It will be a two-day format, with a 43 field that will eventually be narrowed down to a final four that will square off on Oct. 21 at Torrey Pines Golf Course, on the South Course, to determine that individual champion of the Western League.
Now when looking at CIF potential, the Islanders will have a seat at the table and with their performance this season, they figure to have a high seed. As it sits right now Coronado is the 8th ranked team in the county and if the season ended today, they would have a projected third overall seed in the Division II playoffs, only behind Bishops. and Mater Dei.
With the way the Islanders have dominated this 2021 regular season, it would surprise no one to see them continue their dominance as the team enters the postseason and CIF play.
