SBCC Golf: Canyons’ Home-Course Advantage Helps Sink Vaqueros

The women's team is handed its first conference loss.

Canyons used the home-course advantage Wednesday to hand the Santa Barbara City College women’s golf team its first loss in WSC action.

The Cougars won WSC Meet No. 3 at par-72 Robinson Ranch by 10 strokes over the Vaqueros (330-340) in the six-team competition.

SBCC (14-1) remained in first place in the conference standings, one game ahead of Canyons.

“Canyons had the edge, knowing the course better than us,” said Vaquero coach Chuck Melendez, whose team was playing Robinson Ranch for the first time. “There’s a lot of blind shots out there.”

Jennifer Kita of Canyons was the medalist at 79. SBCC’s Asaka Sim and Jackie Molstad were one shot back at 80.

“Asaka’s been solid all year and Jackie played really well,” Melendez said. “We have different people shining each week. I feel really good about this team.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
