On Monday (4/1), the Islander Boys’ Golf team hosted a very strong Torrey Pines High School team. Coronado was up against four CIF players with a weakened team and took a tough 232-176 loss. Freshmen Jake McLaughlin and Easton Phillips led the team on the course with respective scores of 37 and 38 strokes. Juniors Javier Hernandez and Gino Frederick followed, finishing in 45 and 53 strokes, respectively.

This performance was completely turned around on Wednesday (4/3), as the Islanders hosted Point Loma High School in what turned out to be the closest match of the season so far. Phillips improved his score by two strokes since Monday, finishing the course in 36 strokes. McLaughlin followed with a score of 39 strokes. Hernandez also improved his score by three strokes, shooting a 45, while Frederick and junior Matt Schnappauf each finished in 45 strokes. Unfortunately, the Islanders fell behind slightly, as Point Loma was able to capture the victory by a two-point margin, 207-205—Coronado’s best performance of the season.

The golf team currently holds a record of three wins to nine losses.
