Each year, one sports team that always shows up is our men’s golf teams. At YLHS, men’s golf has always seemed to rise to the occasion in our league. Ringing true this year as well, your Mustang golfers are league champions once again. This season was so successful for the men’s varsity golf team so a recap of the season is in order.


This season for the men’s varsity golf team was definitely one for the books. Overall, the Mustang golfers had very few losses and really bonded as a team. With only four losses during the regular season, this year’s varsity team broke records with the least amount of losses for the team as compared with previous years. When asked what his favorite thing about playing golf this season, varsity golfer Ahmed Suri (11) responded, “My favorite thing about golf this season is that I get to spend time with such a great group of guys while playing a sport which requires discipline and perseverance. Playing a bunch of courses in around SoCal is an added benefit.”


In addition to their regular season successes, our Mustangs continued their greatness at CIF. The individual CIF Southern Section Golf Tournament was hosted at Sky Links in Long Beach. At the tournament, Joshua Hu (12) placed second out of 120 players. Joshua scored three under par (-3) for a grand total of 69 strokes. He was only one stroke away from becoming first place. Joshua’s second place win qualified him for Regionals. At the first round of Regionals, Joshua scored two over par (+2) at Goose Creek Golf Course in Jurupa Valley. His achievement advanced him to the next round of Regionals. Continue to show your support for Joshua as he continues to represent our school!


For the team CIF final, our Mustangs broke our school record for and placed third out of 17 other teams. Hosted at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, the score was 379. Our team was led by low medalist Brannon Fahrny (10) with a 68 strokes. This CIF final was a result of all the hard work shown this season.


The men’s varsity golf team is only getting stronger as YLHS is becoming more established. The success of the team this season was the culmination of the coaching staff and the talents of our Mustangs. With the help of Coach Riggs (Staff) and Coach Toro (Staff) running the golf program, this sport will only continue to grow at YLHS.
