DOWNEY - The Warren High School boys' golf team currently has a 10-1 overall record and are a perfect 2-0 in league play. The Bears' lone loss this season came in their first match and was by one stroke.The Bears finished last season with a 14-4 overall record and a league record of 7-1. The Bears were co-champions with cross-town rival Downey. The Bears return several key golfers from last year's squad. Senior and captain Kittichai Damabhorn, junior Lucas Castro and junior Terasak Damabhorn are all back with more skill and another year of experience under their belts. Warren has participated in one tournament thus far. The Bears competed at the Glendora Invitational earlier this season but did not perform very well due to the difficulty of the course. The Bears are looking forward, however, to the Herald Invitational at the Candlewood Country Club and the Knabe Cup at the Lakewood Country Club. In this event, four golfers from each school will compete over eighteen holes. Coach Schmid is very pleased with the continued improvement of Lucas Castro and Cody Trepte. The emergence of senior newcomer Ricky Bravo has also been a pleasant surprise. Coach Schmid is also pleased with the emergence of freshmen Matt Perez and Rafael Russo. Coach Schmid maintains that Downey will provide excellent competition and believes Gahr will have a solid squad as well. Along with Downey and Gahr, Schurr and Montebello round out the rest of the San Gabriel Valley League. Coach Schmid is excited about this season and is looking forward to another run at a league championship.
