Prep Golf: Trevino shines at Eagle Ridge

GILROY — Freshman Avery Trevino continues to shine for the Gilroy boys golf team.
It was only the second match of the season for the Mustangs, but Trevino is establishing himself as a team leader. The rookie led his team with a low score of 58 during Gilroy’s Monterey Bay League Pacific Division contest at Eagle Ridge Tuesday.
“Avery (Trevino) is starting to come into his own as far as finding his game,” Mustangs coach Sam Sauer said. “He has a lot of potential to grow and I see him really climbing the ranks in this league if he sticks to golf the next few years.”
The Mustangs carded a 312 team score which was good for fifth place. Monterey won the meeting with a 252 score followed by North Salinas with 271 and North Monterey County at 284. Alisal placed fourth carding a 308, while Watsonville brought up the rear with 318.
Gilroy Junior Felix Rodriguez finished in the team’s No. 2 spot carding a 60. Sauer said it was a pretty good performance for Rodriguez and proof that his hard work is paying off.
“I know that he felt really good about that and hopefully it wil encourage him to practice hard and stay there,” Sauer said.
The Mustangs took fourth place in their season opener on March 3 at North Salinas with a score of 305. While it may appear they are going in the wrong direction, Sauer said it’s the numbers he’s worried about.
“Of course on paper what people like to see is the number decrease,” the Mustangs coach said. “As a golf coach I also like to see their character change and see how their values as far as sportsmanship, intergrity and responsibility and all of that grow as well. I’m proud of the way they carry themselves at the matches and on the course. They take care of the course and treat everyone around them with respect.”
There is still some work to be done, however.
“I would say the boys in general need to work on course smarts — mananging each individual hole and not taking their driver out on every hole because they want to hit a long shot,” Sauer said. “(I want them) to hit smart shots.”
Gilroy will play its MBL Pacific opponents on Tuesday at the Pajaro Valley Golf Club in Watsonville. Tee time is slated for 3 p.m.
