Prep Roundup: Oct. 17

Gilroy Mustangs

The Christopher girls golf team is No. 1 — literally. 
The Cougars finished the regular season with a 10-1 record, defeating Everett Alvarez 262-293 Wednesday on the road. 
Natalie Gutierrez was the match medalist shooting a personal best 42. Nina Velez shot a 47, Alex Grandados a 55 and Kylie Kuwada and Julie Santiago a 59 and Mia Navarro a 62. 
Christopher will play at Salinas Country Club Monday to determine the league champion, though the time is still to be determined.
Gilroy blanks Leland

The Gilroy field hockey team topped Leland 3-0 at home Wednesday, keeping the ball rolling on its stellar season.
Lilybeth Mendoza scored the game winner for the Mustangs, racking up three points in the game as she contributed to all three goals.
The Mustangs, who were coming off their first loss of the season last week, jumped out to an early 1-0 lead off a corner shot from Katrina Carter which was assisted by Emma Leach. 
Leach picked up her second assist of the game, passing from the corner to Emily Boylin to put Gilroy ahead 2-0. 
“We’re anxious for the second half of our season to see how we’ve improved, how we match up with teams that we’ve met before and just play more hockey,” Mustangs coach Adam Gemar said.
Gilroy will play at Archbishop Mitty at 6 p.m. Friday. 
Mustangs fall to Mt. Madonna
It was a familiar scene at Gilroy High Wednesday night. The Mustangs won their first set against Mt. Madonna, only to lose the remaining three.
Gilroy lost 25-23, 20-25, 16-25, 13-25 to the visiting Mt. Madonna to fall to 2-9 on the season, a result similar to the team’s previous game against North Monterey County. 
Sarah Weiby picked up 11 kills, followed by Leilani Mah with eight. Mah also had nine blocks for the Mustangs.
Jenna Clonts racked up 11 blocks, while McKenna Morley added nine. 
The JV squad also lost its match, losing 25-19, 21-25, 9-15 to Mt. Madonna. 
Fatima Ortega had seven kills while Marie Bernards racked up five aces. 

Gilroy will host Everett Alvarez at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
