2018 Coronado Boys Golf Capsule


Head coach: Joe Sawaia, 17th season

Returning lettermen: Five

Top players: Dylan Fritz (Jr.), Ben Sawaii (So.), Brett Sodetz (So.), Joey Dotta (Jr.)

Outlook: After finishing third in last year’s state tournament, the Cougars bring back a talented group of five lettermen, four of whom had averages better than 80 per 18 holes last year.

Fritz (75.8 stroke average) was a first-team all-state selection last year. Ben Sawaia (75.9) earned second-team all-state honors, and Sodetz (76.8) joined them on the All-Sunrise Region first team. Dotta (79) earned second-team all-region honors.

“We look to repeat as region champions and seriously compete for a state championship,” Joe Sawaia said.
