USD's top finisher at the NCAA Regionals in Tallahassee, Florida with his 220 total (72-70-78), good for a tie for 42nd overall... Tied for 13th at The Farms Collegiate Invitational that USD hosted with a three-round total of 224 (81-71-72).
HIGH SCHOOL: Chiarella comes to USD as Hawaii's number one junior player. Some of his many accomplishments include: being a three-time Hawaii State Junior Golf Association King Auto State Championship winner (2011, 2010, 2009); named the 2010 HSJGA Player of the Year; placed 10th at the 2010 Aloha PGA Hawaii State Open; had lowest scoring average in Maui Interscholastic League all four years; two-time League Individual Champion; and is a 3-time Junior America's Cup, Hawaii member (2009-2011; he tied for 11th in 2010). He won the 2011 Hali'imaile Pineapple Company Tournament of Champions over December 3-4. Chiarella won by four strokes as his 8-under par 136 total (66-70) was four strokes better than two runner-up players, as well as 8 stokes clear of Aaron Kunitomo, who signed a 2012 NLI with UCLA. The event was held at the Wailea Golf Club and played on the Emerald Course. In his first round 66, Chiarella carded 9 birdies in shooting 32-34. The win gave him entry into the Sony Skins Challenge in Oahu, an event he competed in two years ago with Matt Kuchar.
