Bakersfield College men’s golf team responded to their sloppy start to the season in the North and South Cup Invitational, taking fourth place out of 10 teams on March 18-19.

Chabot College took first with a score of 343, Glendale College took second with 347 and Ventura College took third with 376, while BC had 377.

BC got good performances from Travis Millwee, who had a score of 75, and Jack Henneberry had 77.

BC coach Bill Kalivas commented on the team’s performance.

“I think we played better and had better course management throughout the tournament,” he said.

“I think it’s good that we’ve been able to work our way to the middle of the pack and hopefully we can keep it up.”

He added that everyone played with a comfort zone and knew their shots.

“You have to know your shots and what shots you’re most comfortable with because if you know that, it gives you a chance to score points,” he said.

“I still think we need to improve on our course management because we’ve got to know where to put the ball, and not just bombing the ball all around the course.

“It’s important that they know where to put it, and they’ll have a better chance to put some points.”

He also added that he would like to see the team continue to shoot in the 70s.

“I would also like us to get in the top three or four in our conference,” he said.

“I know it will be pretty hard to get first, but if we get top three in the conference that will be big since we’re still a young team.”

BC’s next tournament will be at Saticoy against Ventura College on April 2.
