Diego Palladino shot a personal-best 72 on Tuesday to earn medalist honors and lead San Marcos boys to a 452-498 golf win over Buena at Sandpiper Golf Course. Blake Bornand added a 76.

“Diego and Blake have been working very hard this preseason, so it was great to see that pay off with two great rounds of golf,” said Royals coach Jeff Ashton.

San Marcos returns to the links on Wednesday for a match against Ventura.
