Senior Bella Vigna roared to a five-shot lead after the first round of the 36-hole Channel League Individual Golf Championship on Monday at Soule Park in Ojai.

Vigna fired a 1-under par 71, the only player to shoot under par.

She is attempting to win the championship for the fourth straight year. She won the title outright as a freshman and sophomore and shared it last season with teammate Julia Forster.

Forster shot an 80 on Monday and is in fourth place. 

Gabby Minier of Dos Pueblos is in second place at 76 and Addie Anderson of Buena is in third at 78.

Santa Barbara High freshman Melia Haller is tied in fifth place with Ventura’s Carlee Steven at 83.

The top four finishers advance to the CIF-Southern Section Individual Championships.

The final 18 holes will be played Tuesday.

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!
