The Placer High golf team battled the nasty weather, and one of the top teams in the Sac-Joaquin Section Thursday at Auburn Valley Country Club. The Hillmen prevailed on both accounts, topping old Sierra Foothill League rival Del Oro by eight strokes. Placer fired a 200 as a team, led by Austin Childress, Clark Pietromonaco and Daneil Gregg, who all shot 3-over-par 39. Cody Riecks and Matthew Potter both carded 41s for the Hillmen, who improved to 3-1 on the season. “It was terrible weather,” Placer coach Greg French said. “It was raining the whole time, and windy. The kids did a great job. Del Oro went to state last year so this is a big victory for them.” Del Oro’s Justin Raskin and Bobby Mullen both shot 40 to pace the Eagles.
