The Ramona Bulldog golf team won three league matches and will go into the final week of Valley League play in the driver’s seat. One win will clinch a tie for the league championship, two wins will clinch an outright championship.

Ramona shot its best score of the season against Oceanside High school and it had to. The Dawgs beat the Pirates 191-195 at Oceanside Municipal Golf Course.

Mike Smith shot an even par 36 to earn medalist honors as three Bulldogs shot in the thirties. Ryan Graf shot a one over par 37 and Jacob Buckley fired a 38. Thomas Andrews and Andrew Kaminsky each shot 40. Tanner Angel shot a non-scoring 41.

“We shot extremely well, especially for a road match. Any time a 40 is your highest scoring round you have shot a great match. Oceanside is much improved. It is a good thing that we didn’t treat them lightly. We are getting ready for post league play and the players are peaking at the right time,” said coach Jerry Patenaude.

When the Dawgs returned to their home course at San Vicente Resort they had four golfers shoot in the thirties for the first time this season as they beat Valley Center 194-207. Smith shot another par 36 to record the medalist honors for the second straight match. Angel shaved three strokes off of his Oceanside score to fire a 38. Graf and Buckley each carded a 39. Kazar Matoian shot 42, and Andrews turned in a 43.

The Dawgs finished the week on the road at Pala Mesa Country Club as they beat Mission Vista 218-239. Graf took medalist honors by carding a 39. Buckley shot 40. Matoian turned in a 43. Jason Morton carded a 45. Andrew Kaminsky rounded out the card with a 51.
