LA golfers hope to ace their finals

The Los Altos High golf team has sipped success, and now the Eagles are thirsty for more.

“Our goal this season was to make SCVAL league finals,” coach Richard Fujii said. “We’ve accomplished this, and our players really want to make CCS as a team.”

All eyes were on the Eagles when they arrived at Roddy Ranch Golf Course in Antioch for last week’s Yellowjacket Invitational.

“We were the only team who brought girls,” said senior Carina Burdick, who – along with Maddie Jun – start for the Los Altos High golf team, “and everyone looked at us a little weird.”

After finishing fifth at the 2013 state championships and fourth last year, the St. Francis High girls golf team hoped to crack the top three this season.

Instead, the Lancers went backward.

The St. Francis High girls golf team not only beat the competition last week at the Central Coast Section Championships – the Lancers beat themselves. Well, the 2014 version of themselves.

St. Francis’ score of 377 was eight strokes better than its winning effort at last year’s tournament, also played on Rancho Cañada Golf Club’s East Course in Carmel.

Last year’s St. Francis High girls golf team was the best in school history, though it could lose that status soon – perhaps by November.

“I think we’re better this year,” coach Phil Marrone said.

Xavier Schlough, 5, carded a hole-in-one last week at Deep Cliff Golf Course.

As a 5-year-old, Los Altos resident Xavier Schlough has done something most golfers won’t achieve in a lifetime – make a hole-in-one.

Xavier bagged his ace Aug. 31 on the 17th hole at Deep Cliff Golf Course in Cupertino, according to his dad, Bill Schlough.
