On Monday, April 15 the Islander Boys’ Golf team traveled to Torrey Pines Golf Course to play Scripps Ranch High School for the second time this season. Having previously beaten them 202-225 at home, the team went in confidently and pulled through with their fourth win of the season. Leading the Islanders was freshman Jake McLaughlin, who finished the course in 40 strokes and was named Medalist of the Match (shooting the lowest score of both teams). Freshman Easton Phillips followed two strokes behind, shooting a score of 42 strokes. Juniors Javier Hernandez, Matt Schnappauf, and Gino Frederick contributed to Coronado’s victory with respective scores of 45, 48, and 50 strokes. “On very, very firm greens, we defeated Scripps Ranch 225-237,” shares Coach Stuart Gordon.

Hernandez shot a great game with a score of 40, while Frederick and Schnappauf finished off the match with respective scores of 43 and 49 strokes. Coach Gordon comments, “This was our best performance of the season,” as the Islanders took one final win, 197-198.
