BC men’s golf continues to progress
Bakersfield College men’s golf team had one of its better performances of the season, as they were only two strokes behind third place at the Western State Conference Mini-Tournament on April 26.
Seven teams competed and BC took fifth with a score of 379. Glendale College got first with 365, College of the Canyons was second with 366 and Ventura College was third with 377.
“Other than a few miscues I thought we played a bit better,” said BC coach Bill Kalivas. “It seems like we’re like a rollercoaster right now, just up and down. We need to be more consistent.”
BC got good performances from Travis Millwee, who shot a 73 and Neil Batista shot a 74.
“We’ll have to play really well and have to score in the 360s, like 365 or 366 to keep our season alive,” said Kalivas.
He added that this year was a good learning experience not only for the players but also the coaches for next year.
“We got to learn what were our strengths and weaknesses, and they know now that it takes more focus and better shot positioning,” he said. “Sometimes you learn more from your losses than you do from wins.”
