It was another tough day for the Santa Barbara City College women’s golf team on Tuesday as only one player broke 90 in the final round of the Lady Otter Invitational, hosted by Cal St. Monterey Bay.
British Columbia won the 36-hole event that featured two- and four-year schools with 644 strokes, edging Monterey Bay by eight shots. SBCC, led by Jenna Boyle’s 31st-place finish (86-89—175) finished 12th in the 21-school field and fifth among community colleges.
Asaka Sim tied for 48th (92-90—182) in the two-day event, which was played on the front nine of Bayonet GC and the back nine of Black Horse, due to renovations.
“It wasn’t our best outing but the girls enjoyed the competition,” SBCC coach Chuck Melendez said. “It definitely didn’t cut into our spirit. We’re still in first in the WSC. We just have to regroup and refocus on our goals.”
