SBCC’s Stephanie Farouze Rips Up Alisal with 3-under 69 in WSC No. 8

She earns medalist honors and takes 6-stroke lead in WSC Finals

Stephanie Farouze shot 3-under 69 on Sunday to claim medalist honors in WSC No. 8 at the Alisal River Course in Solvang.

It was a season-best score for the SBCC sophomore, who beat runner-up Haruka Koda of Canyons by six shots. SBCC’s Lauren Calvin and Alexa Bleth tied for seventh at 83 and Corina Garcia was 11th at 85.

Farouze shot a 2-under 34 on the front nine and finished with five birdies and two bogeys. It was her first medalist award this year and the second of her career.

“She’s worked hard and was very focused today,” said Vaquero coach Chuck Melendez. “All parts of her game were working well. It’s great to see things pay off for her.”

Canyons won WSC No. 8 and the opening round of the WSC Championships with 313 strokes. SBCC turned in its best score of the year (320) and was second, just seven strokes back. Bakersfield was a distant third at 389.

With one tournament remaining, Canyons clinched the WSC title with a perfect 40-0 record. The Vaqueros are second (32-8) and Bakersfield is third (22-18).

The Cougars ended SBCC’s three-year reign as conference champions.

The final round of the WSC Championships and WSC No. 9 will be contested on Monday with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start.

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!
