Eagle Golfers Come up Just Short of Conference Tourney Spot

Final Conference Match #9 Hosted by The College of the Desert at the Desert Island Country Club in Rancho Mirage on April 20, 2009.   Weather Clear Sunny and Hot   (100+) 
Tyler Pritkin
COD hosted our final match at the Desert Island Country Club which provided a superior golf course in remarkable condition, even though the temperature hit triple digits, the golf was fantastic.
MSJC came up 4 strokes short and lost the last team play off positon to El Camino College.  The good news is in the individual play of four of team members who will go to the Conference Championship match as individual players.  
 
Tyler Pritkin shot a 77 to finish 15th in the individual standings with a stroke average of 77.  He will be joined by Billy Jianas who finished 23rd (stroke average  of 82.43), Kathryn New 29th (stroke average 87.29), and Justin King 30th (stroke average 88.00) who shot a solid 84 to get the last slot into the finals.  
 
All four will participate in the Conference Championships as individuals with a chance to go on to the State Regionals.
