The SCGA course as always proved to be a long tough course. To add to the difficulty was the threat of rain and cold strong winds. The course was a real challenge and Mt. San Jacinto held on to pull out our best match to date. Lead by Joey Eckles with a one over par 73, the Mt. San Jacinto team again scored under 400 and at 396 we finished in 4th place for the match. Although MSJC fell behind Antelope valley by just 3 strokes, we were able to defeat both El Camino and Long Beach who are tied for 3rd place in our conference. Joey Eckles moved up in the conference rankings to 9th with Dave Aguilar holding on to 18th. Nate Guingab slips a little to 22nd and Shane Chua is at 28th.
