Bishop Bronco Golf Team Captures HDL Title/Goes Undefeated

The Bishop Broncos Golf Team played their final HDL match of the season Tuesday afternoon at the Bishop Country Club. The Broncos capped off their season with another HDL win and finished undefeated for the year. 8-0 in HDL match play, 24-0 vs HDL teams and 10-0 in total match play and 26-0 overall.

Coach Carrington said, “I’m very proud of the entire team this year. They set goals for the year and not only did we achieve those goals, we exceeded them. Finishing 5 of the 8 league matches under 400 for team score and every match under 440. These young men are playing at a very high level right now, posting Division 1 scores and they keep on rolling. We hope to keep this momentum heading into the CIF Central Section Playoffs.”

Tuesdays match was the qualifying match for placement into the up coming playoffs.

The Broncos finished with a Team Score of 404, securing their spot in the Division 2 playoffs. Desert finished 2nd with a team score of 531, Cal City with a 573 in 3rd and Kern Valley shooting a 680 coming in 4th.

Individually for the Broncos,
Adam Kalk finished the season strong with a team best 77, Kobe Carpenter posted a 78, Cj Carrington with a 79, Garin Pritchard shot an 82, Cooper Beard logging a 87 and Corde Peek with a 95.
Along with the team qualifying for the playoffs, we had 4 golfers qualify for individual state playoffs. Adam Kalk, Kobe Carpenter, CJ Carrington and Garin Pritchard will be competing in the Division 2 Individual Playoffs. Very excited and proud of this accomplishment.

“I’ve said this many times, we have several very strong golfers and the great thing about our team is, any one of them can finish first through 6th in any order. It changes week to week. If one or two of them are struggling, the others pick them up. The next week, it changes again. It’s the ideal team matrix. Our next goal is to bring home the Division 2 State Championship. It’s going to be tough, on a very difficult course, but I know if these young men put it together all at the same time, it is a very realistic goal! The great thing is we have seen this course in week 1 of this year when we played in the Lemoore Tournament. We were early in the season and did not post great scores, now we are playing our best and feel we are ready. The guys are excited and want another crack at shooting a lower team score this time around, ” continued Coach Carrington.

Next up for the Broncos is the Division 2 Playoffs, Monday May 6th in Lemoore, CA.
