Sunny Hills’ boys golf coach Scott Enrico was “still in disbelief” on Tuesday.

The Lancers indeed posted a remarkable victory on Monday.

Sunny Hills edged Anaheim Discovery Christian by one stroke to capture the CIF-SS Division 1 team title at Cross Creek Golf Club in Temecula.

The Lancers finished with a 5-over-par score of 360, which edged Anaheim Discovery Christian at 361.

Enrico said the narrow victory against stiff competition — from opposing teams to the course — left him stunned.

“They all came up huge,” he said of his players. “We had a good practice round at Cross Creek. The kids learned the course and they saw what the wind could be like in the afternoon.”

“It really came down to the kids against the course,” the coach added. “I knew we had a shot.”

Freshman Jonathan Jeon and sophomore Caleb Kim led the Sunny Hills by posting 2-under-par 69s. Freshman Andrew Choi carded the next lowest score with a 72 while junior Dino Torres and senior Jeffrey Kwak followed with 75s.

Sunny Hills claimed its first section title since 2013. The Lancers played without Cal-bound Eric Lee, who is part of a Fullerton district online program, Enrico said.

Anaheim Discovery Christian’s You Seong Choi and Tesoro’s Zander Grant carded 67s to tie a group of four for the low score in Division 1.

Sunny Hills and Anaheim Discovery Christian led six O.C.  teams from Division 1 that advanced to the CIF-SS SCGA qualifier on Thursday at River Ridge Golf Course in Oxnard. Dana Hills, Tesoro, Santa Margarita and Crean Lutheran were among the teams to advance.

In other results Monday, Canyon placed second in Division 5.
