Joey remains a conference leader and is ranked number 7. Dave Aguilar also remains in good position ranked number 16.

Mt. San Jacinto traveled about 450 miles this week to play our Second Match in Palmdale. Rancho Vista turned out to be a well designed open course that was easy to walk and provided a perfect venue for our match. The weather was great but once again the high desert winds made play very difficult. Antelope Valley again took advantage of the home town course and jumped out to win this match. The battle for the lead in the Foothill Conference got even tighter as Long Beach and El Camino tied for second and Mt. San Antonio and College of the Desert tied for third. Mt. San Jacinto finished in fourth position. Dave Aguilar got on his game and shot a 78 with Joey Eckles right behind him with a 79. Both are in strong contention for individual honers this season.
