Colfax High's golf team opened its Pioneer Valley League season Wednesday with a victory.

Playing Foothill High at Cherry Island Golf Club in Sacramento, the Falcons handed the Mustangs a 212-298 setback.

"The greens down there were sanded on Monday and the putting was kind of sketchy," said Colfax coach Mike O'Connell. "But the kids did a pretty good job handling it."

Medalist for the round was Colfax's Blake Rawlings, who shot a three-over par 40. He was followed in by Jay Lynch who fired a 41.

Colfax's other scoring came from Trevor Brewer with a 42, Jordan Balser with a 44 and Bailey Bean with a 45.

The Falcons meet Placer on Tuesday at The Ridge in Auburn at 3 p.m.
