Sam Metzger and Bennett Reichard shot under par, and San Marcos was 10 over as a team at Rancho San Marcos, scoring a 365-430 victory over Buena in a Channel League boys golf match on Tuesday.

Metzger led the way with a 5-under 66. His round included six birdies and an eagle. Bennett sank four birdies and was two shots back at 68.

The victory clinched a tie for the league title. The Royals play Dos Pueblos next week for the outright title.

San Marcos coach Aaron Solis was pleased with the overall play of the team as it heads toward the postseason.

"Being 10 over as a team means we are playing well as a team," he said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
