The San Marcos trio of Leo Metzger, Shams Jahangir-Arshad and Jeffrey Forster won the Spanish Hills Invitational, a three-person team golf competition in Camarillo on Monday.
Metzger had the second lowest individual score with a 1-under par 70. Jahangir-Arshad shot a 74 and Forster 80, giving the trio a team score of 224. They won by seven shots over Dos Pueblos.
“We won this last year as well with the exact same score, and second place was also 231,” said coach Jeff Ashton.
He said the conditions were tough as the golfers had to deal with a soggy course.
“Conditions were fairly tough today and Leo grinded all day, making six birdies to battle back from a couple of early mistakes,” said Ashton.
A second San Marcos team of Brody Ricci (85), Graham Chapman (86) and Holdt Gore (87) placed 12th out of 26 teams
Scott Nightingale shot a 75 to lead the Dos Pueblos No. 1 team, Teddy Vigna carded a 76 and Denver Douglas an 80.
The Chargers’ No. 2 team of Colt Roberts (74), Wyatt Gardiner (85) and Lance Hughes (95) came in 10th place.
Roberts, a freshman, was playing in his first high school match. He started the round with a birdie on 5 and had another on hole 2.
“Our team is very young and I am excited to see what we can accomplish this season,” said DP coach Kevin Ahlers.
Dos Pueblos swept Santa Ynez in four matches to take the non-league girls volleyball competition on Monday at the Twin Palms courts.
“Overall, it was a good win versus a solid Santa Ynez team that is always well coached,” said DP coach Mike Fitzgerald.
The Chargers are 2-0 on the season.
Dos Pueblos results:
1s Chloe Hoffman/Lucy Spier defeated Jayda Henrey/Gianna Pecile 21-12, 21-15

Dos Pueblos went 9-0 in doubles sets and lost only one game in a 15-3 win over Ventura High in a Channel League opener on Monday.
Ventura’s No. 1 singles player scored all the points for his team.
“Today was a great way to start off our league, getting to have a home match and play a variety of singles and doubles scenarios,” said coach Laura Marsh. “Ventura’s number one singles player, Thiago, is a fantastic player and person who we really enjoyed competing against.”
The Chargers play at Buena on Tuesday.
