The Benicia High Varsity Golf Team continued their undefeated SCAC league win streak with a 197-297 victory against Jesse Bethel at Blue Rock Springs Golf Course. It was their 58th straight league win, dating back to the past several seasons.
The Panthers look like they are in midseason form, as 197 was their lowest team score of the season. Seniors Nick Flores and Evan Cuenco led the way by shooting 36’s, one over par at Blue Rock. Senior Zack McClure and Junior Dustin Sparks both shot 38’s, while Senior Nick Cillo topped off the round with a 49.
“I played pretty well today, but as a team we played amazing given the windy conditions,” said Flores. “We’ve wanted to break 200 so bad and it’s a team accomplishment that we finally did it.”
The next two weeks feature the final 3 regular season league matches for the Panthers, with 2 meetings against American Canyon and 1 with Vanden. They also have a non-league match vs Vacaville, a team who is expected to give Benicia a good challenge. Be sure to visit beniciapaw.wordpress.com for more updates later in the season!
