SBCC Leads After First Round of So Cal Championships

Elly Carlson fired a 77 on Sunday and SBCC grabbed the first-round lead in the Southern Cal Regional women’s golf tournament at Temecula Creek Inn.

The WSC champion Vaqueros shot 330 and hold a seven-stroke lead over Cuyamaca in the 10-team field. A pair of WSC schools are third and fourth. Canyons is third at 349 and Citrus is six shots back at 355.

The top four teams will advance to the State Championships on Sunday and Monday at Morro Bay Golf Course.

Carlson is tied for third with JoJo Roecker of Canyons in a field of 61 players. Kaylee Jeon of Fullerton was the medalist at 3-over 75 and Georgia Shevitt of Moorpark is second at 76.

Vanessa Watkins and No. 6 player Jessica Safford both shot 84 for the Vaqueros, Stephanie Farouze had an 85 and Lauren Calvin shot 86.

“It was a tough, long course that played very difficult today,” said coach Chuck Melendez. “Elly played well. She got off to a poor start with no pars in the first five or six holes, then had a strong finish.

“Jessica’s 84 was huge for us. Her mother was following her today and I think she was inspirational.”

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!
