Colusa, Pierce golfers earn all-league honors

Five members of Colusa High School’s golf team were among the ten lowest-scoring golfers in Sacramento Valley League matches this season. As a result, each of those five golfers earned themselves an all-league nod. The five all-league selections for Colusa were the most for any team in the Sacramento Valley League. Durham had the second-most golfers named to the all-league team with three. A pair of Pierce High School golfers rounded out the all-league performers for the Sacramento Valley League.

All-league golfers for the Sacramento Valley League are determined by their performance in league matches throughout the season. Most golfers played in a total of six SVL matches. To determine who had earned all-league honors, each golfer’s two highest scores were dropped, and their remaining scores were added together come up with an all-league score total. The ten individuals with the lowest cumulative league scores were then named as All-Sacramento Valley League golfers.

For the RedHawks, winners of the Northern Section Division III Championship for the second straight year, the individual accolades bestowed upon their five best golfers were just the icing on the cake. Brandon Lyss was Colusa’s top golfer and finished the season as the third-best golfer in the Sacramento Valley League. Lyss’ cumulative score of 315 was composed of a 77, 84, 78, and 77. Liam Dewitt came in just behind Lyss, with a cumulative all-league score total of 323, with match scores of 78, 80, 83 and 82. Ben Davies finished the season behind Dewitt as the Sacramento Valley League’s fifth best golfer, with an all-league score total of 327. Ben Rainsbarger and Andrew Ferraiuolo rounded out the Colusa golf team’s all-league performers for 2017, performing just well enough to secure the final two all-SVL spots. Rainsbarger’s cumulative score total was 344, while Ferraiuolo finished with a 354.

Pierce’s Kyler Stassi and Jacob Amsler, finishing with scores of 343 and 342, respectively, made the all-league cut for the Bears. Stassi recorded a total of just four league matches. Stassi shot a 94 in the Bears’ first league match of the season, which skewed his all-league total. Stassi went on to shoot 82, 82 and 85 in the final three league matches of the season. Amsler played in all six of Pierce’s league matches. After dropping his two highest rounds, Amsler’s 342 was made up of an 86, 87, 85 and 84.
