Elly Carlson Leads SBCC Golfers to Third Straight WSC Tourney Win

Elly Carlson was the medalist on Monday and Vanessa Watkins tied for second, leading SBCC to its third straight WSC women’s golf tourney title at El Cariso GC in Sylmar.

It was an unusual day on a shorter course with no par 5’s and a par of 62.

Carlson, a freshman from Colorado Springs, topped the 35-player field with an 8-over 70. Watkins and Michaela Klundt of Antelope Valley tied for second at 71.

SBCC’s Stephanie Farouze and Lauren Calvin both shot 74 and tied for sixth.

The Vaqueros totaled 289, beating Canyons (307) by 18 strokes. Bakersfield was third at 320, followed by Citrus (329) and Moorpark (330).

Santa Barbara (15-0 WSC, 27-1 overall) leads the conference by three wins over Canyons (12-3) and is eight ahead of Citrus (7-8).

“It was a tricky little course with a lot of trees and some long par 3’s,” noted SBCC coach Chuck Melendez. “We played pretty well and pretty consistent. I was pleased with how we held it together in a different circumstance.”

The Vaqueros will seek their third consecutive title in the North-South Invitational on Sunday and Monday at Morro Bay GC. Morro Bay will host the State Championships for the third straight year on Nov. 12-13.

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!
