Senior Andrew Sirowy carded a 34 at the par-36 Golf Club at Brentwood, while junior Jaskaran Sihota finished with a 36 as the Wolverines took home the top spot in a three-way matchup. Heritage placed second with 211 strokes and Antioch, a team focused more on learning the game this season, tallied 249.
Junior Robert Riel also shot a good round, carding a 40.
The victory gave Deer Valley a 6-0 record in BVAL play.
“The goal is always to break 200, and we did,” head coach Brian Kofford said. “I’m pleased with their performance. Our highest score was a 41, so that’s solid.”
Heritage, a squad of mainly sophomores, also came into Wednesday’s match undefeated against league opponents. As Patriots head coach Mark Tinder noted, however, the Wolverines’ top two athletes made the difference. Sophomore Justin Barnes and junior Ryan Bell tied at 40 for the low Heritage score. No. 1 golfer Chris Maxwell, a sophomore, carded a 43.
The loss dropped the Patriots to 5-1 in the BVAL.
“We’re showing consistency from No. 1 through No. 6, and that was something that we did not have in the past,” Tinder said.
Antioch was led by sophomore Josh Mouzakis, who finished with 42. The next-closest Panthers were David Chapman and Chris Ubando, who each recorded 50. Antioch was without the services of junior Jared Mlekush, one of the team's top golfers, who was in an Advanced Placement class.
“They’re still learning,” Panthers head coach John Luis said. “Hopefully, they can learn that the competitiveness has to come out where they want to work to get better.”
