Stephanie Farouze shot 79 on Monday to earn her first medalist honor in the sixth WSC women's golf tournament at Rio Bravo CC in Bakersfield.

Farouze was the only player in the 70s on the long par-72 layout. The players also had to contend with heat in the mid-80s and wind gusts in excess of 35 mph.

SBCC had three players in the top eight – Farouze (1st, 79), Vanessa Watkins (3rd, 81) and Jessica Safford (tie 4th, 85). Lauren Calvin tied for 11th with an 88. Farouze was the third WSC medalist for the Vaqueros this year, joining Watkins (two times) and Elly Carlson.

Santa Barbara shot 333 and won its sixth straight WSC tourney by 24 shots over Citrus. Canyons was third at 361.

"I was pretty happy with the way we played," said SBCC coach Chuck Melendez. "The good thing about our team is different people are stepping up."

SBCC will compete in WSC No. 7 on Monday at Brookside GC in Pasadena, starting at 11 a.m.
