La Verne Defeats Sagehens In Season Opening Dual

San Dimas, Calif. - The La Verne Men's Golf team earned a 21-stroke victory over Pomona-Pitzer on Sunday in the season-opening dual match for both teams at Via Verde Country Club. 

The final score was 294-315, as the Leopards, who won seven straight SCIAC titles from 2007-13 before seeing the run end last year, were able to earn the top three individual scores.

The Sagehens were led by junior Kevin Knox, who carded a 75 in his first round of the year, while freshman Spencer Katchman (pictured) had an impressive debut with a 76. Sophomore Brian Fong added an 81 for Pomona-Pitzer.

The Sagehens will be back in action next weekend for the first of two SCIAC Regular Season Championships at Robinson Ranch, a two-day event which will be held on Saturday and Sunday.
