The Falcons (15-10 and 14-7 in league) will be joined by league counterparts Arcadia, Burbank and Burroughs in the 18-hole event, which will also feature squads from the Camino Real, Del Rey, Foothill, Frontier, Golden, Marmonte, Mulholland and Rio Hondo leagues. More than 75 players are expected to make up the field.
The top three teams move on to the CIF Team Championship Final, which will be held at 8 a.m. Thursday at Redhawk Golf Club in Temecula.
Westlake captured the crown last season with a 358, followed by Valencia Valencia (376) and Arcadia (378).
Pehar said most of the Falcons are familiar with the 6,750-yard course nestled in the middle of Northern Ventura County.
“It’s not a real long course, but there are some fairways that are not very forgiving,” said Pehar, whose squad placed fifth at the Western Team Divisional at Montebello Golf Course in 2008. “There are a few holes where you can’t really use a driver and there are a lot of creek beds.”
Crescenta Valley senior golfer Michael Timpson, a reigning All-Area member who will attend Glendale Community College in the fall, said the Falcons can improve. Timpson finished with one birdie, 14 pars and three bogeys in the tournament last season.
“All but one of us have played the course before,” said Timpson, who captured his first individual league championship Wednesday at De Bell Golf Club in Burbank and will take part in the CIF Northern Individual at River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard on May 17. “We know it and I think we can all do well.
“We can do well as long as everybody plays smart.”
