LANCASTER, Calif. — Jones Comerford shot a three-under par round of 69 to tie for medalist honors, but the Cougars were forced to settle for second place at Western State Conference (WSC) No. 6 at Antelope Valley Country Club on Monday.

Comerford's round of 69 was a season-best for the freshman and top score for the Cougars so far this season. He tied with Zack Steinberger of Santa Barbara City College and Joey Herrera of Ventura College.

SBCC won the event with a five-man score of 369. Canyons was next at 376 followed by Ventura College (381), Allan Hancock (383) and Bakersfield (389) in the top five.

Monday's second place result snapped COC's conference win streak at four. The Cougars had won the previous four events by an average of 11 strokes.

Clemente Yanes finished with a round of 74 followed by Michael Lindgren at 76 and Justin Buenaventura with a 77.

Corey Haase and Clayton Kucera finished with identical rounds of 80, with one of those scores dropped from the final five-man tally. 

Canyons will get back on the course at WSC No. 7 hosted by Glendale College at Oakmont Country Club on Monday, March 19.
