While the Bulldogs currently lead the Eagles, the final league tournament will be held on Pleasant Grove’s home course at Rancho Murietta. “We have to find a way by April 30 to improve our confidence and play our best match to keep our chance of qualifying as a team for the divisional tournament,” Folsom coach Steve Burgess said.
