Burroughs Boys Golf Takes First Round

It was no secret that the Burroughs High boys’ golf team was going to be very strong this season. But being strong and winning a Pacific League title are two different things as the Indians have to compete with Arcadia High.

The Apaches have been the dominant team in the league for quite some time.

But Burroughs gave some indication that things could be changing on Tuesday at DeBell Golf Club.

The Indians captured the league’s first match by scoring 374 as a team. Arcadia followed with 381. Burbank High took third shooting 429. Pasadena High was fourth shooting 430 and Crescenta Valley was fifth, shooting 442.

“It’s exciting because it is our home course. It’s always nice to start the first league match with a win. Even though we didn’t play our best, we still ended up with a victory,” Burroughs coach Greg Everhart said.

On Monday, Burroughs won the Oakmont Invitational in Glendale, beating out 19 schools.

The league teams will meet up again on Thursday at Santa Anita, Arcadia’s home course.
This season’s league schedule has had many changes since all four school districts – Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Arcadia are all taking Spring Break at different times.

The teams will meet up again next week before the four-week break in league play begins.

Niko Coccio

“We all feel real comfortable here. The punched greens are kind of killing us because we’re not able to make as many puts as possible,” Burroughs Niko Coccio said. “I’m feeling confident that we can come out Thursday and win again. That will give us a good shot to win league.”
Burroughs sophomore Kodiak Hernandez was the low medalist shooting an even par.
“It feels good, but I hope the team can come together again on Thursday,” Hernandez said.
Freshman Lincoln Melcher and Coccio, a junior, were both just one stroke behind. Burroughs sophomores Daniel Gonzalez and Ryan McGowan followed by shooting 75 and 76 respectively. Senior Jake Panikowski shot 84.

For Crescenta Valley, Nate Frink shot 76 and Hank Norman shot 77.
