Dave DurbeniukThe Irvine Valley men's golf team takes part in the Orange Empire Conference finals Monday morning at Los Serranos in Chino Hills.

Irvine Valley earned the final of four spots at the conference finals with some strong play the last three weeks of the regular season.

Saddleback, Orange Coast and Santiago Canyon are the other three teams in the conference finals field.

IVC finished the conference season with a record of 6-8, edging Cypress by one match for fourth place.

IVC Coach Ben Burnett said that his six players competing at the conference finals will be sophomores Dave Durbeniuk and Steve Grove and freshmen Kyle Melchiorre, Crockett Stearns, Forbes Collins and Michael Glauser.

"I am optimistic that we can do well," Burentt said. "We won the Tee Off Classic at the beginning of the season at Los Serranos and played really well in some practice rounds there last week."

Durbeniuk, Melchiorre, Stearns and Grove all also have a chance, with solid showings, to finish in the top 10 for individuals  and earn all-conference honors.

The top four teams in conference also automatically qualified for the Southern California Regionals May 9 at Bermuda Dunes in the Palm Springs area.

Conference finals results will be posted on Tuesday.
