Two school records were set in a span of three days last week.
Woodbridge made history first, shooting an 8-under 172 during a 12-stroke victory against Northwood on the back nine of Oak Creek Golf Club. The Friars followed with a 172 of their own to beat Trinity League rival Santa Margarita on the South Course at Coto de Caza Country Club.
The scores were the lowest ever posted by a boys golf team at the school.
The No. 1 Warriors’ 8-under round eclipses the 5-under 170 they posted last season on the front nine at Oak Creek while playing Northwood.
Hide Yoshihara led the Warriors with a 4-under-par 32 while Joseph Chun and Paul Sun each cared a 2-under 34. Nicholas Kumamoto and Marcus Dhillon both came in with an even-par 36. The highest score posted by Woodbridge that day was a 37.
“I was proud that this talented group of players left saying that it could have been even better,” Woodbridge coach Tracy Roberts said. “ The team’s focus and commitment to improve each day and have to have fun while working hard has been the key to their success thus far. I am very proud of these young men.”
The No. 2 Friars bettered the 6-under they posted on the front nine at Western Hills Country Club in 2009.
Kyle Kinnane medaled with a 3-under-par 33. Joey Torri and Jack Rahon both added a 35 while Blake Hale and Brendan Gonzalez carded a 35 and 36, respectively.
