Jesuit wins north golf title with Davis in fifth

Jesuit High solved Wildhorse Golf Club on Monday as the Marauder linksters blazed around the 6.335-yard layout in six shots under par to capture the Sac-Joaquin Section North Divisional Tournament.

Davis, meanwhile, finished far back in fifth and failed to qualify as a team. Also, Blue Devil sophomore standout Patrick Cajandig lost a second-hole playoff to Rocklin’s Blake Abercrombie and was bumped outside the field of six individual qualifiers.

Tourney medalist honors were shared by Jesuit golfers Austen Sandoval and Chad Cubes — each with 3-under 69s.

“It wasn’t our best day, but it wasn’t our worst day, either,” longtime DHS golf coach Karl Ronning told The Enterprise after his guys shot 394 — 40 strokes off the pace-setters and 12 shots in back of final qualifier Del Oro.

“We’re such a young, inexperienced team that we’ll have wide variations in scoring sometimes. This was one of those days.”

Cajandig (whose 74 topped his teammates’ cards) and Abercrombie both took even-par fours on the first playoff hole — 346-yard No. 1. But after Abercrombie again made par on the 328-yard No. 2, Cajandig’s three-putt five ended the long afternoon for the 72 golfers. The top four D-I North schools sent teams and another nine squads were represented by individual qualifiers.

“I’m so proud of Patrick,” Ronning said of Cajandig afterward. “He’s been able to shoot in the 70s since playing recreationally. He’s learned a lot and really turned a corner.

“All of our golfers have turned a corner. Unfortunately we didn’t turn enough of them (Monday).”

Even putting their best sticks forward, the four advancing teams were formidable. Behind Jesuit (354) came Granite Bay (369), Oak Ridge (379) and Del Oro (382).

“Six under?” Ronning said, sifting through the scorecards long after the final putt fell. “Just amazing.”

The top four teams and individual qualifiers now move on to the section Masters tournament at The Reserve (Stockton) next Monday. After that, the NorCals will be played at Diablo Grand Golf Course (Patterson).

DHS senior Chase Dossa closed out an accomplished four-year prep career with a 77. He was followed by teammates Spencer Salk (79) Cyrrus Espino and Michael Chen (both with 82s) and Preston Walchli (83).

“What’s so good about Chase is you just don’t find character guys like him that can be team captains (which he was),” Ronning pointed out. “A good team needs a rock … someone you can always turn to. That’s who Chase became for us.”

Dossa is headed for Sonoma State and is expected to vie for a position on the Seawolves’ golf squad.

“You know, it just wasn’t his day,” Ronning said of Dossa. “But others … fighting it like he did early, might have come back in with an 84 or 86. But he battled, kept it together for his time. There’s nothing wrong with a 77.”

Ronning laughed, when asked what Dossa has meant to the Blue Devils over the years:

“A lot,” the coach said, smiling. “I remember when he was in seventh grade hanging out with our team. I think the bag was bigger than he was.”

Now, Dossa hopes to follow in the Blue Devil footsteps of golfers with last names like Raber and Watney.

Notes: The players hit from the blue tees on Monday and the conditions were ideal. Although big, black clouds hovered near by, they didn’t come overhead with their rain until almost 9 p.m. … In addition to Abercrombie, the other individual qualifiers were Corey Pereira (Ponderosa) and Bryce Johnson (Woodcreek), both with 2-under 70s, Logan Lane of Nevada Union (72) and Andrew Penney (Rocklin) and Brandson Ropp (Folsom) 73.
