Smotherman's 71 leads Del Oro to 1-stroke Masters golf win

Austin Smotherman shot a one-under-par 71 to help lead Del Oro to a one-stroke victory over Davis today at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters boys golf championships at The Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton.

Del Oro, which placed third in last week's Division II section finals, finished with a 381; Davis had a 382. Granite Bay finished with a 388 as the three teams qualified for Monday's CIF Northern California Regional championships at the Butte Creek County Club in Chico.

Turlock's Paul Smith repeated as the Masters medalist with a 69. He advances to the NorCals as an individual qualifier along with Ponderosa's Corey Pereira (73), Oak Ridge's Charlie Cameron (73) and East Union's Will Brink (74). Brink won a five-man playoff for the final spot.

Smotherman's 71 wasn't the only strong score for Del Oro. Eric Ash shot a 73. Robert Sahlit, Canyon Rowe and Justin Raskin shot 79s.

Jordan Baroody led Davis with a 72. Chase Dossa shot a 75, Scott Raber a 76, Charlie Klein a 78 and Alex Blumenfeld an 81.

Chuck Pedrone topped Granite Bay with a 73. Alex Gibbs had a 77, Conner Hallisey 78, Brandon Baumgarten a 79 and Bryan Wise an 81 for this year's D-II section champs.

Jesuit, last year's Masters champions and this year's D-I North champions, finished fourth with a 391. Christian Brothers and Oak Ridge tied for fifth with 392s.
