On February 14, the North County team travelled south for the completion of the North vs. South San Diego Team Tournament. Some competitors were unable to make the tournament but there were a few disc golfers willing to fill in as substitutes. The singles round started around 9am at Morley Field. It had rained the night which made the course a little muddy but the sun was out in the morning and made for a great morning of disc golf. In the afternoon, the competition moved over to Sun Valley for a round of doubles. Again, the rain made the course a bit muddy which resulted in quite a few tombstones and some tough footing on the hillsides.
The North team began the day with an 8 point lead (136-128) but the South team received some strong play in their singles matches and took a 26 point lead into the afternoon doubles round. Once the doubles round finished, the South increased their lead to 36 points (300-264) to secure a victory in the first annual tournament. The results of the matches are below. An asterisk (*) indicates a substitute from the original lineup.
