SBCC golfers take South Coast Classic

City College opened its women’s golf season in style Wednesday by winning a pair of tournaments at Olivas Links in Ventura.

The Vaqueros used an entirely new lineup to capture the South Coast Classic and the first Western State Conference meet. SBCC took first in the nine-team Classic with 324 strokes, followed by Canyons (334) and Irvine Valley (342). The Vaqueros also beat Canyons in the WSC meet, giving them a 5-0 record.

SBCC’s Jenna Boyle shot a 5-over-par 77 to share medalist honors with Sam Roberts of Irvine Valley. Ex-Dos Pueblos High standout Asaka Sim took fourth at 81 while her sister, Sumika, notched an 83 to tie her Vaquero teammate, Jackie Molstad.

“This is a whole new group and I didn’t know what to expect,” said SBCC coach Chuck Melendez. “I’m happy to get the win. This is a great group of girls and there’s a lot of optimism.”
