The Clovers traveled to Deer Creek Golf Course and returned with a 177- 222 win.

“We struck the ball much better and were just much sharper in general,” coach Wokoun added. “Deer Creek is playing very tough right now, and we ran into some difficulty. However, we were much improved in coping with adversity and playing with some confidence.”

Cloverdale’s Zach Hall took medalist honors with a round of 43, while Colte Tomlinson and Freddy Fislar each carded a 44 and Aaron Whitlock a 46 to complete the team score. Rylan Mattocks also shot a 49 and Brody Pfaff 59.

“Zach and Colte are starting to get their games in shape, and Freddy is making improvement daily,” Wokoun said. “Aaron played his best round of the season, although his score does not reflect how well he managed the course and his game.”

The Bulldogs were led by Darrel Barnes with a 46. Daniel Mooze shot a 48, Adam Willis 62, and Robbie Stevens 66. Also playing for Monrovia were Quentin Bridgewater and Nelson Viers with 71 and 81, respectively.

“I think we are becoming more confident in what we want to be able to do,” Wokoun noted. “I expect we will still fight some inconsistency for a while, but our players are starting to realize what they are capable of, and more importantly, they are demonstrating the determination that golf requires.”
