The Eureka Loggers closed out a memorable season in boys golf at the North Coast Section Division-I championships on Monday.
Competing at the Foxtail Golf Course North in Rohnert Park, the Loggers were led by Talon Vigil, who shot a team-best 80.
Head coach Jimmy Rodgers felt his golfers didn’t perform as well as they could have — a sentiment the golfers shared — but he believes the experience will stand to a young roster that will return most of the top golfers next year.
“I felt that we left a lot of putts on the greens,” Rodgers said. “As a team I don’t think we played very well.
“But I think it was a great experience for the younger guys. I think they’ll be more prepared next time.”
In addition to Vigil’s 80, Julian Goodman shot a 90, Jordan Urban a 91, Andrew Stewart a 92 and Jerome Lyon a 93.
Larry Jimenez rounded out the six-man roster with a round of 101.
Urban and Jimenez are the only two seniors on the Eureka NCS team and the five-time defending league champions should be strong again next season with three All-League selections — Vigil, Goodman and Stewart — all returning.
The NCS tournament was won by Amador Valley’s Kush Arora, who shot a 65 and will compete for Stanford next year.
De La Salle had two of the top four golfers and took the team championship with a score of 374.
Eureka shot a 446 as a team.
Last week, nine other H-DNL golfer traveled to compete at the NCS Division-II championships in Petaluma.
