Cienega High’s School Kevin Parkhurst finished at 2-under-par 106 to win the individual title in the weekend’s 20-team, 27-hole Dorado Invitational boys golf tournament at the Rio Rico Country Club.
Parkhurst followed a par 36 on Friday with a 2-under 70 on Saturday to best the field of 125 golfers and help Cienega to a team score of 484 to tie for sixth place with host Canyon del Oro.
Catalina Foothills, led by second-place individual finisher Billy Flower’s par 108, won the event with a team score of 449. The Falcons had a nine-shot cushion over second place Ironwood Ridge (458).
Sierra Vista Buena was third (462), followed by Flagstaff Sinagua (477) and Cave Creek Cactus Shadows (481).
On the girls side of the tournament, Catalina Foothills (482) edged Avondale Westview (464).

The Amphi girls volleyball team remains undefeated in matches that count, but was swept Saturday in the championship match of the Mountain View Invitational by Gilbert Mesquite 2-0 (25-20, 25-14).
Tournament and invitational events such as the weekend’s 21-team Mountain View Invitational do not count toward a school’s official record that determines region standings or state playoff positioning. In those matches, Amphi still boasts an unblemished 12-0 record.
Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep, the defending Class 4A Division II state champion, beat Catalina in the third place match.
Marana won the co-ed Dorado Relays swim meet Saturday at the James Kreigh pool.
