Junior Golf

I commented a few weeks ago that the Pleasant Valley High School golf team is perhaps the most talented group of young players Coach Dave Crawford has had in his 25-year career as as a PVHS golf coach.

The previous week’s results at a league match at River View CC in Redding pretty much confirm those sentiments.

All six players on the Vikings team shot under 80 for a team total of 366 (low 5 scores), which is undoubtedly a school record and may well be a league record.

If it’s not a record, someone should confirm the lowest total score for six games.

The PVHS team members shot the following scores: 1, Andrew Ma, 70; Landon Williams, 71; Nate Borello, 73, Aneil Sandu, 73; Jordan Boles, 79; Keifer Zelenski, 79 years old.

Leave me alone! The total could easily be the same next time, but the team members are reversing those excellent scores. It’s a crap for these young talented players to know who will be medalist from one week to the next. Great performance guys!
