GLF: Ho, McBride lead Royals over Santa Barbara

Remi Ho and MacKenzie McBride paced San Marcos’ girls golf team on Thursday in a 243-331 victory over Santa Barbara High at La Cumbre Country Club.

Ho and McBride finished the match with nine-hole scores of 46. Mallory Sestak’s 49 was the Royals’ third-lowest score, while Lauren Pitchford (50) and Alex Pitchford (52) filled out the scorecard. The Royals were playing without senior Kelsey Gellert who is being honored at the school’s football game as senior class homecoming princess.

“Kelsey is a strong, cohesive presence for our team and playing without her today, it was obvious that something was missing,” said Royals head coach Sarah Ashton.

Jade Allmon’s 56 led the Dons.

San Marcos is now 4-1 in Channel League competition and faces Buena on Tuesday.
