La Cañada in Rio Hondo League Individual Tournament: Seven of nine Spartans advanced to the second day of the Rio Hondo League tournament, which had 12 golfers move on, at the Marshall Canyon Golf Club in La Verne on Wednesday.

Collin Morikawa owns a share of the lead, along with San Marino High’s Charlie Allen, with a two-under-par 69. Morikawa, a sophomore, won the individual league title last year by eight strokes with a pair of three-under 68s.


“This year, he’s got some people breathing down his neck, so it should be interesting,” La Cañada Coach Richard Tetu said.

The Spartans’ Robby Stehlin and San Marino’s Ben Allen also find themselves in a tie for third place with each carding one-under 71s.

Daniel Rhee and Joshua Suh tied for sixth place with each shooting 76 for La Cañada, which had Noah Bernstein and Adam Horne jammed in a four-way tie for 11th with 78s. The Spartans also had Colin Kreditor just move on to the second day of the tournament with a 79, which is where the cut was set.

The top five finishers in the two-day tournament, which picks back up Thursday at noon, will advance to the CIF Northern Individual Regional Tournament on May 13 at the River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard. La Cañada, which won the league title with an 16-1, 8-0 in league record, is set to take park in the CIF Northern Team Divisional Tournament at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai Monday at 1 p.m.

La Cañada 172, Monrovia 232: The Spartans capped off an undefeated run through the Rio Hondo League with a victory Thursday at the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club.

Collin Morikawa was the day’s medalist with an impressive four-under-par 30. La Cañada’s teams score combined for two-over, as Robby Stehlin was at one-under 33, Adam Horne and Noah Bernstein were two-over at 36 and Joshua Suh carded a 37.

The Spartans will enter the Rio Hondo League Individual Tournament with a 16-1, 8-0 in league record.


Campbell Hall 3, Flintridge Prep 1: Karlsen Termini went one for three with a run batted in for the Rebels, who had just two hits, in a nonleague road loss Wednesday. Flintridge Prep slipped to 13-8 on the year.

The Rebels host Pasadena Poly on Friday in a crucial Prep League game.
