The Bulldog golf team enjoyed a good week as it beat Steele Canyon, San Pasqual and Vista in non-league matches to improve its record to 4-1 on the season.
“Senior Ryan Graf was the medalist in two of the three matches,” said coach Michael Gainey. “This brings his medalist total to three in the first two weeks of competition. As a team we are off to a great start and have two more non-league matches coming up this week.” Ryan Graf only played in two matches last week.
Against Steele Canyon March 10 at San Vicente Golf Course, Graf fired a two-under-par 34 on the front nine in a 211-236 Bulldog victory. Freshman Cameron Marshall carded a 40. Thomas Andrews shot 42 and Michael Smith posted a 45. Andrew Kaminsky shot 50 while Nick Elliott recorded a 58.
The Dawgs traveled to Eagle Crest Golf Club on March 11 and a different Graf led the Dawgs in a 211-237 win. Freshman Justin Graf, Ryan’s brother, carded a one-over-par 37. The team grouped its scores well in the match with the following rounds in the forties: Jacob Buckley, 41, Kazar Motoian, 42, Andrews, 44, and Marshall, 47. Dane Harvey turned in a 52.
The Dawgs finished the week on March 12 with a 209-234 win at San Vicente over Vista High School. Ryan Graf recorded his second medalist honor of the week with an even par 36. Justin Graf also shot in the thirties as he carded a 39. Shooting in the forties were Buckley, (41), Marshall (45) and Cody Anderson-Parks (48). Jason Morton turned in a score of 51.
