Canyons Tops Field Again to Win Fourth Straight Tourney

Canyons Tops Field Again to Win Fourth Straight Tourney

College of the Canyons continues to distance itself from the rest of the Western State Conference (WSC) field, winning its fourth straight tourney with a five-man score of 362 at Spring Valley Lake Country Club on Monday.

As has been the case through much of the season, the Cougars finished ahead of second place Ventura College (367), third place Santa Barbara City College (375) and fourth place Citrus College (389).

Glendale College (395), host Victor Valley College (435), Antelope Valley College (460) and Bakersfield College (467) were next on the scoreboard.

Canyons is now five points ahead of Ventura in the conference season standings, and 12 points ahead of third place SBCC. 

Meanwhile, Jaeyeol Kim's season-best individual score of 69 topped the field to give the sophomore medalist honors for the third straight week.

Kim and teammate Ricky Hoefert both shot a 74 to take medalist honors at Oakmont Country Club on April 10. Kim was also the low man at the WSC event hosted by Canyons at TPC Valencia on April 3, with his even par round of 72. 

With his most recent performance, Kim now leads the WSC individual standings, with two conference tournaments still to play.

The Cougars had three golfers shoot identical scores of 73 on Monday, with Ben Campbell, Dan Taplin and Michael Lindgren all finding similar success in navigating the course.

Hoefert and Travis Fay both turned in rounds of 74, with the latter score eventually dropped to produce a five-man total.

Canyons will next compete at Antelope Valley Country Club on Monday, April 24.

The WSC Finals will be held at Santa Maria Country Club on Monday, May 1.
