We want to congratulate Herald junior Mitchell Briley for his OUTSTANDING SEASON! In the CIF prelims on May 7th, Mitchell shot a 3-under par 69 to qualify for the CIF Finals in Santa Barbara.
The CIF Final match happened on Thursday, May 17 at the beautiful (and VERY difficult) Rancho San Marcos Golf Course near Santa Barbara. Mitchell started off with mostly pars in his first few holes and then sank a beautiful birdie putt on #3, but struggled with his approach shots coming in. The strong part of his game for the round was certainly his driver. He was hitting long ones down the middle all day long. Unfortunately Mitchell did not qualify for the Regional State Qualifier on May 24th.
We are proud of Mitchell for his accomplishments this season and hope to see him back in this event next year in his senior season! Mitchell has a busy summer in front of him playing in multiple Junior Events and is working toward a college scholarship in golf. Way to go Mitchell!
