San Marcos improved to 11-1 on the season with a 254-284 win over Buena in a designated non-league match Thursday at Sandpiper.
Riley O’Brien took medalist honors for the fifth time this season for the Royals, posting a 47 with two pars “despite not being able to see the final three pins due to fog,” coach Sarah Ashton said.
“We had a great win today under tough conditions,” Ashton said. “It started out sunny and cool but ended with dense fog that made it nearly impossible to see even 40 yards.”
Stella Ashamalla followed with a 49, “due in part to good tee shots,” Ashton said.
“Campbell Thayer had a solid 51 and recovered well when she got in trouble.”
San Marcos plays Buena again on Tuesday, this time for a Channel League match at Olivas Links.
“It felt like a stronger team effort today compared to Tuesday” in a win over Oxnard. “It felt like the girls came in more focused and determined today.”
