Weaver, Clovis West take Area golf titles

Michael Weaver shot a 6-under 66 to lead Clovis West High to the North Area Division I golf team championship Monday at Madera Municipal.

Weaver's individual title-winning round helped the Golden Eagles post a 365. Memorial finished second at 381 and will join Clovis West at the Central Section team championships May 19 at Belmont Country Club.

Division II champion Fresno Christian (432) also will be in the field that will include the top two Division I teams and top Division II team from the Central and South areas as well.

Clovis West placed three others -- Matt Swindle (72), Kenny Park (73) and Pace Johnson (74) -- in the top 15, so all move on to the section's individual championships May 28 at Seven Oaks Country Club in Bakersfield.

Clovis East freshman Bryson DeChambeau shot the day's only other sub-par round with a 69.

Buddy Senatore's 72 helped Memorial to an unexpected second-place team finish.

"They came out of nowhere and absolutely stunned people," Bullard assistant Mike Firpo said of Memorial. "That [high finish] hasn't been done for a while from a school that size. They were not among the top four or five teams coming in."
