In their first match of the season on March 10, they were fortunate enough to travel to the Ritz Carlton in Marana where the PGA's Accenture Match Play Championships are held. The scores were not so great but the team had a fun time in the match with Pusch Ridge Christian Academy. Playing in the match were the Ritz and the Stronghold Miners' scores for the day were 51s by Ralph Bencomo and Nathan Johnston, 54s by Andy Monfred and Kyle Randall, while Pete Reynoso struggle on the tough Stronghold lay out with a 66. Also playing as the Miners' sixth man, a non-scoring position, was Nathan Meadows. "The Stronghold can be a real tough layout if a pla.yer doesn't keep the ball in play," Burrow said. "With lots of wash area, desert area, and ravines to wreak all sorts of havoc on then, the team seniors, Kyle Randall, Nathan Meadows, Ralph Bencomo, Courtney Encinas, Rudy Hill, Nathaniel Meadows and Preston .Casillas; sophomores, Nathan Johnston, Pete Reynoso, Chris Wilson, and Jessica Hillis; freshmen, Andy Monfred, Chantelle Krause, and Rene Ayala. The Miners played a match on Monday, March 29, at Cobre Valley Country Club in Miami, and then they will travel to Tucson's Arthur Pack Park to play at Crooked Tree Golf Club on March 31 with a 3 p.m. tee time. Lady Miners battle to stay consistent on the Nathan Johnston, Pete Reynoso, Kyle Randall, Courtney Encinas, and Andy Monfred. "It was a cold and blustery day at the Ritz. It is a really nice but tough course and the kids struggled playing it for the first time," head coach Rodger Burrow said. The Miners traveled to the Apache Stronghold in San Carlos on March 25 for a match against home team Miami and Tanque Verde out of Tucson. The Miners managed to score well enough to come out on top in the match scoring a 210, to Miami's 212 and Tanque Verde's 215. managed to negotiate the layout fairly well. I am seeing a lot of improvement in their game not only mechanically but mentally as well I see them playing a lot smarter and that is nice to see. Ralph Bencomo has been a nice addition to the team. He has really shown, some leadership vocally and he's leading by example, especially at practice. It is nice to have a senior on the team with a bit of golf knowledge willing to help out the younger players and showing them what is necessary for them to get better."
