Warrior golfers 4th in league, Hagen sixth at league tournament

Lynas and Hagen qualify for CIF tournament

Fallbrook High School’s boys golf team finished fourth among the six Valley League teams both in the dual meet standings and in the league tournament.

“We had a lot of young kids,” Fallbrook coach Steve Jorde said.

The Warriors had a 4-6 record in league dual meets which was part of the team’s 4-12 overall record. This year’s varsity consisted of senior Keller Hagen and six sophomores.

“I think they’ll be better as the years go on,” Jorde said.

Five of those players participated in the league tournament April 30 at the St. Mark’s course in San Marcos and May 1 on the Twin Oaks course in San Marcos. Hagen placed sixth among Valley League individuals with a 36-hole score of 161; he shot an 81-stroke round at St. Mark’s and took 80 shots at Twin Oaks.

Quinn Lynas had a score of 174 over the two days, shooting rounds of 85 and 89 strokes. Damon Powell had two 90-shot rounds for a score of 180. Paul Romano took 96 shots April 30 and 94 shots the following day for a score of 190. Adam Rodarte compiled a score of 274 with rounds of 138 and 136 shots.

The first round of the CIF tournament was held May 13 on the Admiral Baker course in San Diego. Lynas had a round of 82 strokes, and Hagen had a score of 84.

Twelve teams advance to the second day of the CIF tournament as do the players not on a qualifying team with the top 28 scores, if there is a tie for 28th place all golfers with that score return for the second day. The cut this year was 80, so neither Fallbrook player advanced to the second round of the tournament.
