Freshman Easton Phillips finished first for Coronado with a score of 38 strokes. The Islanders fell 234-194.

To conclude their week, the team played in the annual tournament hosted by Saints at the San Diego Country Club. “Another cold wet afternoon at San Diego Country Club with parents being able to watch players performances,” says Coach Gordon. The first Islander to finish the eighteen-hole course was Phillips in 77 strokes. Phillips placed sixth overall (with eight top schools competing). He was followed by McLaughlin, who shot 81 strokes, and Hernandez, who shot 88. Of the eight schools competing, Coronado placed fifth.
