Jako, Servite find way to extend win streak to 30

STAFF WRITER

CHINO HILLS – It isn’t a secret on the Servite boys golf team. Coach Dane Jako can be a drill sergeant, a self-described hothead who constantly pushes his players to improve.

“But I think in the end, they know it is going to make them tougher,” he said. “It is going to make them stronger. It is going to make them do what they need to do when it comes to crunch time.”

In the Friars’ case, that usually means they go out and win.

On a day when Jako juggled his lineup and gave some of the program’s JV players a varsity start, Servite found a way to beat Los Alamitos, 195-197, at Western Hills Country Club on Wednesday.

Kyle Kinnane carded a 2-over-par 37 for No. 6 Servite (10-0) to share medalist honors with Ellis Tirado, who posted a 37 for Los Alamitos (3-5).

The victory was Servite’s 30th in a row dating to the start of last season. The longest winning streak for one of Jako’s teams at Servite is 35 matches in a row.

The Friars don’t seem to be impressed by their success.

“Winning by two to Los Al is not something to be (happy about),” said Blake Hale, who posted a 4-over-par 39 for the Friars.

Last week, the Friars beat the Griffins by 13 strokes on Los Alamitos’ home course, Old Ranch Country Club.

“We are not even close to playing as good as we can play,” Jako said. “Right now we are just trying to find the right fit (in the lineup) for everybody.”
