For the first time in six years, the Tracy High golf team finished the San Joaquin Athletic Association season out of first place.

Lodi, which went 10-0 in SJAA matches, had the advantage going into the league championship tournament Monday, April 29, at Lockeford Springs Golf Course.

Tracy and Lodi tied 416-416 in the league tournament, which put Tracy (7-3 SJAA) in second place overall.

It was good enough to advance the full team to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I South tournament Monday, May 6, at Creekside Golf Course in Modesto.

Senior Robert Erler led the Bulldogs with a score of 79 on the par-72 course. Sophomore Talon Simmons (82), junior Shivam Swamy (84), sophomore Jared Finney (85), sophomore Amit Grewal (86) and freshman Gavin Bean (89) will round out the six Bulldogs who will play Monday.
