After maintain a consistent strong form of play throughout the entire season, Moreau Catholic High School culminated its fine run with the North Coast Section DII team golf championship on Monday, May 9, at Rooster Run Country Club in Petaluma.
Moreau sent six golfers to test their skills against the par-72 course. Led by junior Carlos Briones' 74, the Mariners shot 316 as a club, taking the title by two strokes over Marin Catholic High School. Sophomore Blake Ramos shot a plus-5, 77 for Moreau, with Jose Montes (82), Kevin Murray (83), Justin Herrera (91) and Ryan Rodriguez (97) rounding out the championship squad.
Briones was the lone golfer on Moreau Catholic that shot well enough to qualify himself for the NCS DI Tournament of Champions on Monday, May 16, at Contra Costa Country Club. Joining Briones at the DI TOC Monday is Blaine Ruggio of Middletown High School and Evan Knight of St. Vincent High School, who both shot a tournament-best 73, as well as Remond Lyons of Stuart Hall High School, who shot 74. (Knight earned the individual title after topping Ruggio in a playoff.)
