OCVarsity.com

The third-place girls golf team in the Pacific Coast League standings might be the best team heading into the final days of the regular season.

On Thursday at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, four University players posted scores in the 30s to help the third-place Trojans beat No. 4 Corona del Mar, 187-218. It was the Sea Kings’ first league loss this season.

After shooting a school-record 178 at Strawberry Farms on Tuesday, the Trojans are averaging 183.6 in their past three matches.

“We have been doing well. I think their confidence is up,” University coach Kevin Kasper said. “Hopefully, when we get to CIF, we can play as well as we have been playing,”

Amy Matsuoka earned medalist honors, shooting a 2-under-par 34 for the Sea Kings (11-2, 7-1), who are tied for first place with Beckman with two matches remaining. The Sea Kings (11-2, 7-1) will play the Patriots for the final time on Oct. 16 at Tustin Ranch Golf Club. University (10-3, 5-3) is third in the league standings.

Ellen Takada and Kristin Shea each fired a 1-under-par 35 to lead University, and Samantha Cabunag and Nodoka Honda added a 37 and 39.

“This is pretty special,” Kasper said. “Hopefully, we can keep the confidence going.”

No. 1 Santa Margarita 189, No. 9 Mater Dei 209: Taylor Chang shot an even-par 36 on the South Coast at Coto de Caza Country Club to help the Eagles (13-0, 7-0) clinch the Trinity League championship.

No. 8 Trabuco Hills 188, Laguna Hills 273: Hailey Borja posted a 3-under-par 31 at Laguna Wood Golf Club to lead the Mustangs (11-3, 8-0) in the Sea View League match.
