Boys Golf Captures League Title
The Dana Hills boys golf team clinched the South Coast League title by finishing strong and waiting for results around the league to come in.
After the Dolphins (7-5-1, 6-2 league) defeated Capistrano Valley in a nonleague match on April 26, head coach Glenn Forester was notified that Tesoro beat Mission Viejo, which put the Diablos at 5-3 in league and one game behind the Dolphins.
Dana Hills was the lone team in league to reach six wins, and was scheduled to play a nonleague match against Capo Valley on April 27. Results were not available at press time. The Dolphins will now embark on a journey to reach the CIF-SS Team and Individual Championships.
Baseball Heads into Final Stretch
After two weeks off from Sea View League competition, the Dana Hills baseball team will make its return to league play on May 3 against Trabuco Hills.
The first-place Dolphins (15-10, 6-2) will play two important games against the second-place Mustangs (13-8-1, 5-3) that week. The two will play again at Dana Hills on May 5.
The Dolphins have not played a league contest since April 21, but kept busy with a tough slate of nonleague games. Dana Hills lost to Cypress 8-7 on April 22, then lost in extra innings to El Toro on April 24. Dana Hills picked up two wins after toppling Capistrano Valley in a double header at Saddleback College on April 26.
