The 89th annual Alameda Commuters teed off last weekend April 16 and 17 on the Earl Fry Course. The best amateur golfers from California competed for the Bob Blomberg Champions Medal.
Peter Kuest, a senior at Clovis West High, is atop the leaderboard at 13-under-par 129 after two rounds of play. Kuest, who will attend Brigham Young University in the fall, built a pretty sizable lead in the first weekend of the event. He shot a six-under-par 65 on Day 1 of the event and a seven-under 64 on Day 2.
The Alameda Commuters 36-hole Medalist Honors for 2016 went to Peter Kuest of Fresno, Calif., above, who fired rounds of 65-64 for a 13-under total 129 at the halfway point in the 72-hole golf tournament head on Alameda’s municipal golf course for the past 89 years.

The Alameda Girls’ Softball Association (AGSA) completed an extensive amount of games last week. The AGSA had to make up for several games that were postponed due to rainy weather.
In one make-up match, the Pagano’s Hardware Tigers took down the Compliment’s Salon Space Invaders 9-0 in an eight-and-under division match up. Cheyenne Caina and Breanna McMillan hit doubles for the Tigers in the first inning.
The St. Joseph Notre Dame (SJND) baseball team continued its winning ways with a 12-2 victory over Salesian of Richmond.
The Pilots combined for 10 hits and were walked nine times. Two SJND players (juniors Vincent Republicano and Patrick Yajko) each had two hits in the contest. The Pilots scored in five of the seven innings on offense, including a 4-run fourth inning.
Jean Cho was crowned the Alameda Women’s Golf Club April Charm winner with a stellar effort on the Earl Fry Course last Thursday, April 7.
Cho played in the third flight — handicap of 30 to 32 — where she shot a net 59. She blew away the competition not just in her flight, but in the overall tournament. Her net 59 was five strokes better than the next closest competitor, Mirna Wong, who shot a net 64 in the fourth flight — handicap of 33 to 35. Cho’s net 59 was almost 10 strokes better than the next closest golfer in her flight.
