Cougars Swing 14-stroke Victory at WSC Tourney No. 9

By Jesse Muñoz/COC Sports Information Director

College of the Canyons won its seventh conference event of the season on Monday, this time carding a season-low, five-man score of 366 at Santa Maria Country Club to take Western State Conference (WSC) event No. 9 on Monday.

Jones Comerford led the field with a three-under-par score of 69 to earn medalist honors for the third time in four weeks. Comerford also took top honors at last week's WSC tourney at Spring Valley Lakes Country Club in Victorville.

Michael Lindgren finished tied for second with his even par round of 72, to help put Canyons in control.

Corey Haase (74), Clayton Kucera (75) and Jack Roycroft (76) finished just a few strokes off that pace to finalize the Cougars' scores. Justin Buenaventura had his round of 80 scratched.

Those marks helped COC to a 14-stroke win over event host Allan Hancock College (380). Glendale College (386) finished in third followed by Santa Barbara City College (396) and Ventura College (397) rounding out the top five.

The Cougars will now play in back-to-back non-conference events before heading to San Dimas Golf Course for WSC No. 10 on Monday, April 23. The conference finals will then be held the following Monday at Crystalaire Country Club, in Llano.
