Sahith Theegala runs away with Coronado City
CORONADO, Calif. (Sept. 28, 2014) — Sahith Theegala, a senior at Diamond Bar High School (in California's Inland Empire) headed down to the scenic Coronado Golf Course for the weekend and ran away with the Coronado City Championship.

On a day where the wind was a bit breezier than day one and the pins were tucked, Theegala -- perhaps inspired by seemingly endless birdies made over the weekend at the Ryder Cup -- shot a blistering seven-under par round of 65 to extend his two-shot opening-round lead to eight, winning the event in wire-to-wire fashion. He has committed to attend Pepperdine, and judging from his play here, and earlier this summer at the Los Angeles City Championship, he will make a fine addition to the golf team.

Finishing alone in second place was Tyler Moore, who shot 70-71.

Moore's sister, Haley, won the women's division by 12 shots, shooting 70-65. Moore, a 15-year-old high schooler from Escondido, shot 62 last year as a 14-year-old at Twin Oaks Golf Course at the San Diego Junior Spring Championship.

In the Senior division, John Hoffman fired back- to-back rounds of 72 to win by four. Ken Kubis finished in second place at 148 with consecutive 74's.
