It doesn’t come as a huge surprise, but the top two players on the Islander Girls Golf Team, senior Crista Izuzquiza and junior Mary Damian both advanced to the CIF SoCal Regional Golf Championships. At the CIF San Diego Section Finals, Izuzquiza shot 76-76=152, while Damian shot 77-75=152 at the Admiral Baker Golf Course.
The same competition that qualified both players for the Regionals, also served as the CIF San Diego Section Team Playoffs. By shooting a 426-437=863 score, Coronado, under the direction of Head Coach Stuart Gordon, finished seventh in the County as a team. They also finished in second place in the Division II standings, behind overall Section winner Mater Dei, which shot a team total of 767.
The SoCal Regionals will be held Thursday, Nov. 14 at the Brookside Gold Club, Course No. 1, in Pasadena. Should Izuzquiza and Damian advance, the CIF State Golf Championships will be held Tuesday, Nov. 18 at the Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach.
