GLENEDEN BEACH - The Seaside boys golf team traveled to Sandpines and Salishan Golf Courses for a two-day tournament Friday and Saturday.

The Central Coast Classic featured four teams from last year's state tournament. The Gulls were in second place (15 strokes behind Phoenix) after the first 18 holes Friday at Sandpines, and that's where they finished.

Phoenix extended its lead over the field to win by 38 strokes with a two day total of 683, with Seaside second at 721, followed by Stayton (726), Newport (758) and Taft (849).

Seaside's Lujac Desautel ended up tied with Nick Galbreath of Phoenix for medalist honors. Both players shot identical 85-80-165 scores, and Galbreath had a par on the first playoff hole to win the tournament.

Seaside's Peter Scruggs finished 11th (183), followed by Charlie Kloss (12th, 185), John Schmidt (14th, 188) and Mark Ulbricht (17th, 195).

"Lujac played a great round on Friday," said Seaside coach Jim Poetsch. "He was in second place after the first day and went out with a goal of winning the tournament. He had a putt for birdie on the final hole that would have won it outright. He put a good stroke on it, but it broke right at the end and just missed the hole."
