The Placer High boys golf team watched its stellar season come to a close on a wintry Monday at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV tournament at Timber Creek Golf Course in Roseville. The Hillmen battled hail and cold temperatures for much of the afternoon. Rob Schauble shot an 88 to lead Placer, followed by Nathan Bonner at 92 and Kyle Sproul and Ryan Holden, who each shot 94. Austin Childress injured his knee midway through the 18-hole match and was unable to finish. Joseph Greenlee became too cold to complete the match either. “Our team score was kind of shot because of the cold and weather,” said head coach Greg French. “It was a very miserable day and they were thinking about canceling it after a 45-minute delay. It was too bad that it had to be played today but they had to get it in before next week.” “We had a good year and I’m very, very proud of my guys,” French added. “They did a great job. We’ve got a good group of guys coming back next year, so hopefully we’ll make another run.” Division VI tournament Forest Lake Christian’s Spencer DeYoung shot a team-best 92 on a windy day at Stevinson Ranch Golf Club in Stevinson Monday. Capital Christian fired a combined 448 to win the tournament, while the Falcons carded a 528 and failed to advance to next week’s Masters Tournament. Justin Raskin shot a 95 for FLC, followed by John McDonald (110), Chris McCowan (115) and Garrett Boatman (116).
