Carolin Chang’s Hot Play Leads SBCC to South Coast Classic Title

SBCC won its second straight South Coast Classic title on Monday and Yu-Hsin (Carolin) Chang claimed medalist honors in the 12-team women’s golf tournament that finished at par-71 Buenaventura Golf Course.

Chang, a sophomore from Taiwan, shot 66 at Olivas Links and 68 at Buenaventura for a 9-under total of 134. She won the tourney by 13 shots over Mikia Fang (77-70--147) of Mt. San Antonio. SBCC’s Vanessa Watkins (73-77--150) tied for third in her first college tournament.

The Vaqueros shot 308 (77.0 average) for a 616 total that was 13 better than Sierra, which shot 305 on Monday. Reedley was third at 669.

 “Carolin played very well both days and she left a lot of birdie putts out there today,” said coach Chuck Melendez. “Everything she does in golf is excellent. Vanessa is a great player who works hard and we’re expecting great things from her.”

WSC No. 1 was also held on Monday and the Vaqueros cruised to victory at 308, beating Citrus by 68 strokes. Chang was the medalist at 68 and Micaela Klundt of Antelope Valley was second at 71.

The Vaqueros will defend their title in the Desert Classic on Friday and Saturday at Bermuda Dunes CC.

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!
