Seemingly the first team to enter their post-season every year are the Girls Golf Team in the fall and the Boys Golf Team in the spring. Since there are state tournaments for golf, the entire regular season is pushed back to start earlier and end sooner than any other at CHS.

For their part, the Islander Girls Golf Team is ready to compete said Head Coach Randy Coutts. “The Girls have played themselves into the playoffs. We are now at 55 strokes above par (for a team score) and we are shooting a 235, which is our average. The girls have worked at it and we have mixed and matched our lineups. The girls are playing hard and we have had some pretty good results.”

The Islanders are led in scoring average by junior Kesar Patel, who has a scoring average of 40 strokes per nine holes. In an exact tie for second place, down to one-hundredth of a stroke according to Coutts, are Grace Gibson and Carson Ricks, who on average shoot rounds of 44 per nine holes.

Last week Coronado shot a 234 to defeat Chula Vista at Salt Creek. Patel shot an even par round of 36 and was the match medalist. Later in the week Coronado lost to La Jolla 208-264. Coutts said, “The La Jolla group knows how to play.”

Coronado was scheduled to send seven players to the City Conference Tournament which began play Monday at Balboa. Representing Coronado are Anna Curry, Elia Aguirre, her sister Gina Aguirre, Dani Ruffo, Ricks, Gibson and Patel. The field starts with 64 players and is cut in half by the results of stroke play Monday. The field is again reduced in half after stroke play Tuesday. Then the Top 16 players advance to match play at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo. The match play will cover nine holes only and will be conducted after school is out, so the competitors miss a minimum of class time.
