The Cavaliers clinched a six-stroke victory in league March 13 at Peach Tree Golf and Country Club.
Junior Miles Edwards and sophomore Harrison Moon birdied the last hole, solidifying the Cavs’ victory.
Edwards said he did a “Tiger Woods fist pump” after sinking the ball.
Edwards’s and Moon’s strong finishes were critical to the day’s success because other factors were stacked against the Cavs. Freshman John Snyder, a typical front runner on the team, said he had an off day.
“I had a really tough night’s sleep the last three nights due to allergies, and I was a little dehydrated,” Snyder said.
Participants said the course was more difficult than usual due to the extremely firm and narrow fairways and the condition of the green, causing the ball to roll faster than usual.
The Cavs also noticed the improvement of other league teams since the last
tournament. “The opponents I played with were much more skilled than before. Specifically, Sac Adventist had particularly long hitters,” Edwards said.
The Cavs’ next league match is Monday, April 24 at Rancho Solano.
The Cavs are 2-0 in league.
