SBCC showed great balance in WSC No. 5 on Wednesday with four players finishing between second and seventh in the women's golf tourney at San Dimas Canyon GC.

Elly Carlson, a freshman from Colorado Springs, took second with a 5-over 77. Vanessa Watkins was third at 79 and Stephanie Farouze shot 82 to place sixth for the fourth straight tournament. Lauren Calvin tied for seventh with an 85.

JoJo Roecker of Canyons was the medalist at 74.

The Vaqueros totaled 323 strokes to top the six-team field. Canyons was second at 348 and Bakersfield took third at 367.

"We did pretty well today, considering that Vanessa was the only one who had seen this course," said coach Chuck Melendez. "It was tough and long and I was happy with the way we handled it. This is probably our longest day of the year with the travel and golf.

"Our players had a good attitude and I was proud of how they competed."

SBCC will go for its sixth straight WSC tourney title on Monday in WSC No. 6 at Rio Bravo CC in Bakersfield at 10 a.m.
