So far this year CB’s golfers have used their above-par skills to shoot sub-par scores.

Christian Brothers’ men’s golf team has begun their season with very strong results in league and tournament play.

The squad have placed extremely well in three of their tournaments through mid-April. Most impressively, the boys took first place in the extremely competitive 18 team Rocklin Tournament and the Lincoln Tournament in Stockton. Furthermore, CB’s little linkers displayed that they are all grown up against statewide competition at the De La Salle tournament by taking second place.

The team’s performance so far has thoroughly impressed Coach Kirk Purdy.

“We’ve been playing very well — we are definitely one of the strongest teams in the Sacramento area” Purdy proudly proclaims.

It is easy to believe that the success of Brothers’ men’s golf is due significantly to the squads experienced and extremely skilled top golfers.

“This is one of the best teams we’ve had in several years because of players like Andrej Bevins (’13), Hunter Rappleye (’13), Camilo Duran (’14), and Brandon Munso (’13)” junior golfer Christian Contreras (’14) tells the Talon.

But Coach Purdy believes that some team members do not get the recognition they deserve and that some of the teams regulars have an impact though they may not post top-echelon scores. Primarily, Purdy believes the junior class has produced players which solidify the squad as a very deep and potent power.

“It’s been a good surprise to get Steven Lahey (’14) out this year as he had never gone out for golf before but is playing very well” Coach Purdy reveals.

Other junior talents include three-year players Michael Perez (’14) and Contreras. Combined with a well-stacked senior class, these juniors offer the squad a legitimate chance at success on the statewide level.

And team expects no less than that — a shot to play in the California state championship. With an impressive record so far and only league play to go until playoffs, this goal seems very attainable for the CB mens golf team.
