Gabe Cloquet fired a 3-over 73 to tie for second on Wednesday and the SBCC men's golf team took second in the Orange Empire Conference Classic at Candlewood CC in Whittier.

Reedley won the 14-team tourney with a 370. SBCC tied Mt. SAC for second at 383 and took second outright thanks to JB Jandro's lower sixth-man score (81 to 84). Cypress was fourth (387), followed by Irvine Valley (397) and Desert (401).

Ben Bernard of Cypress was the medalist at 72. Cloquet, a sophomore from Belgium, finished a stroke back in a five-way tie for second.

Theo Andre-Fouet and Felix Dine added 76s and tied for 13th for the Vaqueros (24-1) with Preston Gomersall and Trent Caraher shooting 79s.

"It was a tough putting course and it was narrow with lots of trees," said SBCC coach Chuck Melendez.

SBCC will play in WSC No. 1 on Monday at Bakersfield CC, starting at 11 a.m.
