Daniel Gregg fired a 74 to lead the Hillmen to victory in the 18-hole Pioneer Valley League No. 1 tournament Monday at par-72 Diamond Oaks.  

The Placer boys golf team (406) finished well clear of second-place Lincoln (434).

Gregg and Placer teammates Clark Pietromonaco (76) and Landon Hicks (78) were the only three to shoot in the 70s.

Also shooting for Placer were Logan Strange (89) and Peter Kean (89).

“We played in difficult conditions, with winds up to 35 miles per hour and gusts up to 40 but we ended up pulling it out,” said Placer coach Greg French. “I was very pleased with the way the kids played. We look forward to moving on.”

Rounding out the team scores were Colfax (435), Bear River (494), Center (511) and Foothill (571).

Placer, which remains unbeaten in PVL play, hosts Foothill at Auburn Valley today.
