Golfers on par at Wing Point -- Sports Roundup
June 9, 2008 · Updated 8:09 PM
Led by even-par performances from sophomores Rick Ulloa and Paul DeBarros, the Bainbridge High boys golf team opened their Metro League season with a solid home win over Seattle Prep, Eastside Catholic, and Nathan Hale Monday afternoon at Wing Point.
Ulloa and DeBarros shared first place honors with Kyle Miller of Eastside, each with rounds of 35 for the front nine holes.
Metro league matches are scored using a form of Stableford scoring which awards one point for each double bogey scored during the nine hole round, two points for each bogey, three points for par, four for birdie and five for eagle.
An even-par round scores 27 points, which both Ulloa, DeBarros and Eastsides Miller tallied. Augmenting the two even-par rounds for the Sparts were solid efforts by sophomore Austin Hurt, who penciled in a one over par for 26 points, and senior Bobby Campbell, who was three over par for 24 points.
Metro scoring rules only tally the best four scores from the five starting players, so Jamie Neills six over par for 21 points did not affect the team total. It was, however, a very credible showing for the freshmans inaugural varsity appearance.
The Spartan team total of 104 points was followed by perennial golf power Seattle Prep with 100 points, Eastside Catholic with 86 points, and Nathan Hale with 71 points.
The next match for Bainbridge will be today at Jefferson Park in Seattle.
