Diego Palladino fired a 77 to earn medalist honors and lead the San Marcos golf team to a 434-503 Channel League victory over Cabrillo at Sandpiper Golf Course on Monday.

Blake Bornand finished a stroke behind Palladino with a 78.

“We got solid rounds out of our guys today to score our season low of a 434,” coach Jeff Ashton said. “I hope that today was a good momentum builder and that we can continue to improve through the last month of the season.”

San Marcos is 3-2 overall and 2-1 in Channel League. The Royals play Santa Barbara on Thursday at Sandpiper.
