Lathrop no match for Timberwolves
Placeholder Image
It was business as usual for the Sierra High golf team, which took care of Lathrop High’s developing program with ease 205- 348 Tuesday at Manteca Golf Course.

Miguel Dominguez and Drew Allen paced the Timberwolves turning in medalist honor earning 39s in the win. Paul Michaeleto and Ryan Leasure both tallied 40s, while Kasey Milam rounded out the Timberwolves’ scoring with a 47.

“We said we were going to go in and try and help them out because they are a first year golf program,” Sierra head coach Jeff Williams said. “At the same time our focus is on playing the golf course. We want to compete against them, but we are attacking the golf course.

“That was our objective, and they did a good job.”

A pair of 65s from Cedric Sterling and Jay Butler led Lathrop, while Gilberto Duran chipped in with a 71. Cory Baker shot a 72, while Tanner Treat finished with a 75. Kenneth Deguzman was the throw out score with a 76.

The Timberwolves (3-1) will find themselves in the midst of a challenging match today when they roll out the welcome mats for the Oakdale Mustangs. Tee time is scheduled for 3 p.m.

East Union 187, Ceres 218
CERES — The Lancers returned from River Oak Golf Course with the convincing win, but the squads performance left something to be desired heading into a huge VOL match at Oakdale Golf and Country Club Thursday.

East Union (4-0) was led by Will Brink’s 3-over-par 34, followed by Kyle Harmon’s 35. Jordan Duvall also tallied a 35, while Evan Lewis and Tanner Bragg shot 41 and 42, respectively. Guillermo Eajaras had the throw out score with a 44.

“Granted, we were playing against a little less talented team, but there’s no excuse for letting up,” East Union head coach Dennis Wells said. “That’s why I got a little upset, it seemed like their focus was way off today.”

The Lancers will head east and try to turn in a lower round than Oakdale. The Mustangs have been impressive this season, led by returning standout Austin Whitworth and a pair of talented freshman.

East Union will undoubtedly have to be on its game if they plan to leave Oakdale Golf and Country Club with a VOL win.

“We play at their course and that will be the thing that is most tough,” Wells said. “It is always a tough place to play and of course a couple of my guys have never had a chance to play there before.

“I think we can do it if we can stay away from the big numbers. We just have to play a little smarter.”

Modesto Christian 222, Weston Ranch 238
STOCKTON – On Monday, Weston Ranch fought the good fight but fell nonetheless to the Crusaders by 16 strokes at Van Buskirk Golf Course.

Joel Keough and Tim Weatherwax led the Cougars with shooting 45s, while teammate Ryan Ortiz and James Aragon finished with 48s. Joseph Renaud rounded out the Cougar five with a 52.

The Cougars will meet up with Lathrop High at 3:30 p.m. to continue
