Thanks to cooperation amongst coaches, Vista Murrieta gained the Southern Section Division 5 golf championship Monday with the help of a backup quarterback.
Aiden Canada, who had to depart a number of practices through the spring soccer season for golf tournaments, shot a three-under-par 69 to lead the Broncos at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai. They gained the crew championship with a rating of 376. Moorpark claimed second at 388, and San Marcos took third at 395. Glenn Meadows shot a 71 and Jaden Huggins had a 72 to help Canada, a junior.
“You have to look out for kids’ best interests,” Vista Murrieta soccer coach Eric Peterson stated.
The soccer crew went 6-0, and now the golf crew is a champion aided by Canada, who’s transferring to vast receiver this fall. “Coach P was gracious enough and believed in me enough that I missed a couple practices to play golf and go to some quality tournaments and help my team win,” Canada stated.
