San Marcos Edges Dos Pueblos by 2 Strokes in Channel League Golf Showdown

The showdown between two unbeaten rivals brought out the best in the Dos Pueblos and San Marcos boys golf teams on Thursday.

All five San Marcos golfers all shot in the 70s, enabling the Royals to squeak out a 370-372 win over the Chargers at Glen Annie Golf Course.

San Marcos improves to 4-0 in league play and Dos Pueblos is 3-1.

Chad Metzger of San Marcos and DP’s Andres Fairbairn shared medalist honors at 1-under par 70.

The next three Royals, Chad Visser, Bennett Reichard and Bryce Quesada, carded 72s, and Andrew Rice scored a 78.

Mikhan Benedictus and Zach Steinberger each fired 73s and Joseph Pigatti had a 76, and Luke Vigna an 80 for Dos Pueblos.

"Both teams played really well today. We were fortunate to grind out a win against a good team on their home course,” said San Marcos coach Aaron Solis. “We needed and received contributions from everyone."

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!
