Corona finishes sixth

DESERT HOT SPRINGS — The Corona del Mar High boys’ golf team finished a memorable season Thursday wanting more next season.

Sea Kings Coach Mike Starkweather sees them building off a grand year.

CdM finished sixth out of 21 teams in the CIF Southern Section Team Final Championship Tournament at Mission Lakes Country Club. The strong finish was a part of a huge season for the Sea Kings, who went 21-1 during the regular season, recoring the most wins in program history.

Starkweather was pleased with the season.


“The nice thing about it is that we’re returning five of the six [golfers],” said Starkweather, who guided the Sea Kings to a second straight undefeated Pacific Coast League championship season. “The boys are very serious about winning it all next year.”

CdM scored 376 on the par-72 course. Servite won the event with 371. The top four teams advanced to the SCGA Regional Qualifying Tournament, the precursor to the state tournament. The fourth-place team had 374.

Mike Moorhead led the way for the Sea Kings, as he shot even-par 72. Brian Mull carded a 73, Chase Wheatley and Ryan Grable both shot 77 and John Davenport 79.

The season is not over for Davenport and Tanner Trauthen, who compete in the CIF Southern Section Southern Individual Regional at Skylinks Golf Course in Long Beach Monday at 7 a.m.
