Matteo Bonales
Central Valley sophomore Matteo Bonales placed fourth at the John Montano Invitational on March 9 in Merced.

Central Valley’s varsity boys golf team turned in a program-best performance while competing at the John Montano Invitational on March 9 at Merced Country Club.

The Hawks placed fourth overall with a score of 373 at the 19-team tournament.

“We shocked people,” Hawks’ sophomore standout Matteo Bonales said. “Everybody was surprised by the improvement.”

Bonales fired a 4-over-par 76 en route to earning a fourth-place medal.

Hawk teammates Kadin Richardson, Thomas Carrillo and Armando Guajardo shot 92, 102 and 103, respectively.

“For the first tournament of the season, it wasn’t that bad of a score or placement,” Bonales said. “Our team had the lowest score out of any of the other teams from the Central California Conference.”
