Men's Preview

The La Verne Men's golf team will be in a tight race for the SCIAC title. The Leopards, currently ranked No. 14 by Golfstat and No. 23 by the GCAA sit eight strokes behind defending champions Claremont-Mudd-Scripps after the first two SCIAC tournaments. The Leopards took the individual titles at each of the first two tournaments.

Junior Hisham Hussein shot nine-under at SCIAC No. 1, seven strokes better than the next competitor to take the top spot at the opening conference competition. At SCIAC No. 2 Pitiluk Phanomchai took first individually, finishing on par and edging out Pomona-Pitzer's and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps' top golfers by one stroke. Three Leopards finished in the top-five at the tournament with Hussein taking fourth and Conner Davis placing fifth.

Phanomchai also led the Leopards to a second place finish at the prestigious West Cup held at Sierra La Verne. Phanomchai took fifth individually in a field that included six top-25 teams. Both Hussein and Phanomchai took home SCIAC Athlete of the Week honors for their performances at the conference tournaments.

Davis has also had a strong season for the Leopards earing SCIAC Athlete of the Week honors after he led the men's golf team at the Las Vegas Desert Classic tying for 38th overall in a field of top DII and DIII golfers. 

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (9/9), Cal Lutheran (20/22), and Redlands (22/18) are all ranked in the top-25 nationally (Golfstat, GCAA).
