Sumika and Asaka Sim finished 1-2 in WSC Meet No. 4 on Monday, leading the Santa Barbara City College women’s golf team to its third victory in four conference meets.
Sumika Sim, a senior economics major at UCSB who’s taking this quarter off to attend SBCC, was the medalist at 4-over-par 76 in the six-school competition at Tierra Rejada GC. Her sister, Asaka Sim, who helped Dos Pueblos High win the CIF Northern Regional last year, was a stroke back at 77.
The Vaqueros shot 321 to finish 16 strokes ahead of Canyons.
Coach Chuck Melendez said that the Sim sisters were both 1-over after nine holes. Jackie Molstad shot 83 for the Vaqueros, and Jenna Boyle turned in an 85.
“Our top four have been trading places, and I like that,” Melendez said. “We have someone different step up each time. We really liked this course.”
SBCC leads the WSC at 19-1, followed by Canyons (17-3) and Moorpark (10-10).
The Vaqueros return to action Monday in the fifth WSC meet at RiverLakes Ranch in Bakersfield.
