Golf: CHS Boys Defeat Scripps Ranch 202-225

On Monday, March 18, the Islander Boys’ Golf team took a tough loss against Saints away at the Riverwalk Golf Course. “With two players missing, it was an uneven match up,” says Coach Stuart Gordon. Freshman Easton Phillips finished first for Coronado with a score of 38 strokes. The Islanders fell 234-194.

On Wednesday, Coronado hosted Scripps Ranch High School after a thunderstorm and hail. Despite the undesirable weather conditions, they pulled off their best performance of the season. Freshman Jake McLaughlin shot a 35 (one under par), his lowest score of the season. Senior Saul Chacon and Phillips finished next, each with a score of 40 strokes, followed by junior Javier Hernandez, finishing in 41 strokes. On the tail end for the Islanders were juniors Matt Schnappauf and Gino Frederick, finishing with respective scores of 46 and 47 strokes. The Islanders won 202-225.

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.
