WSC No. 1 was also held on Monday and the Vaqueros topped the five-team field, beating runner-up Canyons by 24 shots. Johannson and Vanesa Villa of SBCC were the medalists at 78.

“It was a good experience for us because we have a few players who haven‘t played many college matches,“ said SBCC coach Chuck Melendez, whose team is 19-2 overall and 4-0 in conference. “The greens were a little tough today and the wind came up. We still have a ways to go to catch Palomar.”
