The San Benito CISD Golf Program hosted the Middle School City Championship golf tournament on Saturday, April 28, at Cottonwood Creek Country Club in Harlingen.

The tournament field was comprised of players from SBCISD’s three middle schools – Berta Cabaza Middle School, Miller Jordan Middle School, and San Benito Riverside Middle School.

Battling rainy conditions and a very competitive field, San Benito’s players put their best efforts in order to come out as city champions. The tournament was shortened to six holes for boys and six holes for girls due to the inclement weather.

In the girls’ division, Riverside’s Amber Reyes fired a 22 in six holes while her teammate Ashley Trejo came in second place at 25. Miller Jordan’s Jessica Garza (29) earned third place, while her teammate Ekaterina Cruz (33, tiebreaker) was fourth. Rounding out as the top finishers were Mariah Garcia (33), and sisters Jocelyn and Rayana Lopez, all from Berta Cabaza.

Riverside claimed the Girls’ City Championship title, followed by Miller Jordan, and Berta Cabaza in third.

On the boys’ side, Berta Cabaza’s Eddie Molina (25) fought off a tough field and took the top individual prize. Gabriel Flores from Miller Jordan (28, tiebreaker) was second. Andre Mercado (28) of Berta Cabaza took third, while Miller Jordan teammates Nicholas Gonzales (4th), Armando Garza (5th), and Ethan Lugo (6th) rounded out the top six. Berta Cabaza’s John John Menchaca was seventh, Alan Vasquez of Riverside finished eighth, and Berta Cabaza’s teammates Jorge Rodriguez and Jarrid Lopez finished ninth and 10th, respectively.

Miller Jordan (29) edged Berta Cabaza (27) for the Boys’ City Championship title with Riverside in third.

Golf coaches for the respective schools are Armando Garza, Miller Jordan; Alfonso De la Cruz, Riverside; and Pablo Sanchez, Berta Cabaza. The San Benito Golf Program is under the leadership of San Benito High School Varsity Golf coach Henry Valle.
