GLENDALE, CALIF. — College of the Canyons captured another tourney win as freshmen Jones Comerford and Michael Lotta finished second and third, respectively, in the individual standings at Western State Conference (WSC) No. 7 played at Oakmont Country Club on Monday.

Lotta, who was competing in his first conference event of the season, finished with a round of 75 to place third at the event.

Clemente Yanes and Corey Haase were right behind the leaders with identical rounds of 76, while Justin Buenaventura added a score of 79 to round out the Canyons top-five.

Michael Lindgren also competed, but had his score of 83 dropped from the final tally.

In the team standings, Canyons carded a five-man score of 380 to top second place Ventura College at 394. VC sophomore Joey Herrera was the event medalist with a round of 69.
