Armed with plenty of stability and depth, the La Cañada High boys’ golf team appears ready to turn the corner with its sites set on qualifying for the state tournament.
La Cañada Coach Richard Tetu said it wouldn’t shock him if the Spartans qualified as a team or sent multiple players to the event in June.
“This team has got such incredible depth in that we have 12 players who can compete at the varsity level,” said Tetu, whose team will look to win an eight consecutive Rio Hondo League championship. “We have six guys who can shoot under 75 during an 18-hole match or 37 or less over nine holes, so that puts us in good position.
“We have had some individuals go far, but haven’t had a team get out of the regionals.”
Tetu, the reigning All-Area Boys’ Golf Coach of the Year, will present a lineup that will include seniors Noah Bernstein and Daniel Rhee, junior Joshua Suh and sophomores Collin Morikawa and Robbie Stehlin.
