The Saints golf team has been a perpetual contender for the league championship and over the last 30 years has won more than 75% of their dual matches. Our golfers have won one State Championship (2005), one Southern California Championship, 2 CIF Championships, and have also been CIF runner-up 4 times. The Saints golf team has participated in the full field San Diego CIF Championship 31 years in a row heading into the 2018 season.
The 2018 season will be a rebuilding year with many openings available as none of the six golfers who earned a varsity letter in 2017 will be returning to the lineup. Graduated lettermen Tyler Whittaker, Matthew Pins, Aidan Clement and Haytham Yousif formed the core of the Saints 2017 team while also playing large roles throughout their careers. Haytham is continuing his golf career on a scholarship at NCAA Division II powerhouse California State Stanislaus and broke into their lineup for matches this fall. Tyler has continued his golfing career on the club team at Grand Canyon College with the goal of earning his way onto their NCAA Division I team.
Looking to earn a spot on the Saints 2018 the varsity roster is a group of players who are excited for the opportunity to compete and who gained experience through both junior varsity and varsity matches last year. Juniors Liam Hudson, Rodrigo Bremer and Diego Gonzalez all received significant playing time with the varsity last year and figure to be in the top six throughout the 2018 season. Each has been working to improve for the upcoming season. Figuring to join these three in the hunt for a varsity spot are seniors Michael DiVita, Hugh Maguirre, Parker Obregon, and Alec Padilla. With qualifying wide open to all players on the team, it will be interesting to watch the competition unfold throughout the spring season.
Besides playing in 10 Western League matches, we will compete in another 14 to 16 nine-hole dual matches starting in February. A highlight of the season will be on March 22nd when Saints will serve as host for the 6th consecutive year of the “San Diego Country Club High School Invitational”. This event is held at one of the most prestigious venues in San Diego and features eight of the top high school teams in the county as well as four top local high school players.
