Shams Jahangir-Arshad finished as the second overall individual player, and San Marcos placed fourth as a team at the Coyote Invitational boys golf tournament at the Calabasas Country Club on Monday.

The Royals’ four lowest scores out of five totaled 314, nine strokes behind team-champion La Cañada (305). Hart (307) was second and Calabasas (308) third.

The tournament drew 20 teams and 100 players.

Jahangir-Aarshad shot a 1-over par 73 to lead San Marcos. Jeffrey Forster fired a 76 and tied for seventh place, Leo Metzger scored an 81 and Brody Ricci an 84.

“It was the first time playing the course for all of our boys, but I was proud of the way they handled themselves and was excited for both Shams and Jeff to have top-10 finishes,” said coach Jeff Ashton.

The Royals are back in action Wednesday against Valencia.
