Head coach Robb Gor welcomed his golf team off the course at Lakewood Country Club late Monday afternoon. The news was good as all six of his golfers shot in the 70s, but the calculators needed to do the adding before the crowning of a champion would occur. After the final participant’s score card had been tabulated, jubilation reigned for the Cubs as their cumulative score earned them an unprecedented fifth consecutive CIF Southern Section Division I championship. Loyola’s final tally was 366 (the scores of the top five golfers on each team are added to determine the order of finish), 12 strokes better than runner-up La Mirada’s 378. Troy of Fullerton carded 381 to finish in third place, and Palos Verdes came in fourth with an 18-hole total of 385.
CONNOR BROWN and BRANDON BUENO each carded an even par 72 for the Cubs. STEPHEN BROWN shot a one-over par 73, PARKER LESTZ came in with a 74, MATTHEW DEVELLE finished three-over with a 75 and QUINN McGINLEY shot 76. It was quite an impressive day on the links for Loyola, especially given the pressure of high expectations.
The team’s title marks the first time in Cub sports’ annals that a team has won four consecutive CIF championship trophies. Loyola’s golf teams have won seven CIF Southern Section titles.
Loyola's varsity lacrosse team won the US Lacrosse California Southern Section title with a convincing 10-6 victory over Corona del Mar. They finish the year with a 20-4 record.
