Mateo Golfers Tee Off Into CCS Together

Our boy’s golf team rose out from the lower division and became number one. In CCS, usually only select players from a golf team can qualify, but the Mateo golf team is different than the norm, as the entire team has qualified for pre-CCS and will be playing against the Bay Division which consists of nearby schools such as Aragon, Hillsdale and Burlingame.

Out of eight games, they had seven wins, so they were not able to win the Ocean division, but since they  defeated the winners who they are tied with, (Sequoia), twice, so they are considered number one. With a team composed of all grades, the team embodies both young talent and veteran experience.

They hadn’t expected the season to be so competitive, since they were in a lower division, but some games were merely a stroke away. Although the Ocean Champion title has eluded the surging golf team, Coach Mr. Ikeda always tells his players to “play smart,” by still following all the rules and not trying to make “miracle shots.”

Freshmen Rick Da and Josh Leviloff are considered  the young golf prodigies on the team. Seniors Darren Toler and Harry Su were valuable players in the season, as both senior veterans shot low scores throughout the entire season.  “They didn’t let their scores get in the way of their playing,” said Junior Michael Asuncion, “We always made comebacks because we are positive thinkers.” Even with Darren Toler’s hindering ankle injury, he team was able to come out on top.

The seniors on the team are Maxx McNeil, Kenta Ogawa, Harry Su, and Darren Toler, juniors are

Michael Asuncion and Robert Weathers, sophomore Jake Monash and freshmen Josh Leviloff and Rick Da. These nine men are leading San Mateo to victory this week as they begin their pre-CCS on Wednesday, April 24.

You can’t support the golfers at their meets, but you can definately support them at school. Be sure to congradulate them in the halls whenever you see them.
