SHP boys claim first golf tourney title in school history

The Sacred Heart Prep boys traveled north to the par-71 Meadow Club course in Fairfax for the Wildcat Invitational and shot a sizzling 8-over par as a team to capture their first tournament title in school history.

The Gators' 14-shot victory was paced by Stanford-bound Bradley Knox's 3-under par 68. Knox was awarded the silver medal as the second-place individual finisher after parring the first play-off hole to defeat Jonathan Shaw of Redwood. Will Brueckner of Acalanes shot 66 to claim medalist honors.

Sacred Heart Prep juniors Bradley Keller and Derek Ackerman finished with an even-par 71 and 1-over- par 72, respectively. Keller tied for fourth with Ackerman finishing in a seven-way tie for sixth. UCSB-bound Taylor Oliver contributed a solid 75 and sophomore Shane Snow rounded out the Gators' scoring with a 77, in only the second varsity tourney of his career.

Sacred Heart Prep shot 363 as a team to hold off Campolindo and Foothill, both of which shot 377. Menlo School was ninth with 391 and Menlo-Atherton shot 422.

Jeff Herr led Menlo with a 73 while Riley Burgess shot 75 and teammate Ethan Wong carded a 76. Menlo-Atherton was led by Grant Johnson's 77.

In SCVAL De Anza Division golf action, Gunn remained unbeaten after six matches following a 208-212 victory over host Los Altos on Monday. Jack Jaffe and Zack Tevanian led the Titans with 4-over 39s with Shai Mohan and Herbert Sadler-Wong each carding a 41.
