Bonales has off-day at Divisionals
Central Valley sophomore Anthony Bonales made no excuses following his early exit from the playoffs on May 8.

"It's definitely upsetting to not meet my expectations but I know I'll come back stronger next year," said Bonales, who fired an 11-over-par 83 while competing at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-IV Varsity Boys Golf Tournament on the Diablo Grande Legends Course in Patterson. "You learn a lot more from your losses. You'll see my name again."

Anthony shot a 76 while claiming the WAC title on the same course the previous week. He couldn't generate a similar performance at Divisionals.

"I was hitting the ball solid," Anthony said. "My shots just weren't going where I needed them to be. It just wasn't my day. Golf is like that."

Sonora's Barrett McLaughlin (71), East Union's Will Brink (72) and Central Catholic's Tyler Alldrin (77) secured individual berths to the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Tournament.

Bonales finished ahead of Alldrin in the WAC individual standings.

Valley Oak League champion Oakdale placed first at Divisionals (402) and extended its season.

Ceres High failed to post a team score because two of its players were disqualified, including Adam Hall and Wade Kolodzieczak.

Ian Couture led the Bulldogs with a 99.

Jesse Reveira carded a 100.

Blake Hurst and Dominic Durossette both shot identical rounds of 109.

Bonales had high hopes for his sophomore year.

Anthony nearly achieved all of his goals as a freshman.

He just missed advancing to NorCals. He tied for fourth place at Masters and saw his season come to an end after losing a five-man playoff. He finished third at Divisionals.

"I'll push myself further and improve tons more because of this experience," said Bonales, who will be vying for his third straight WAC MVP award and tournament championship next year.

Anthony plans to play in 15 tournaments this summer.
