SoCal Championships

The SoCal sleeping giant arose on the South course to overcome a 13 stroke deficit in the SoCal Men's Community College Championships. Canyons (COC) fired an even par round (360) (Los Serranos North) yet found itself 13 shots behind Mt San Antonio (347 13-under par) heading into the South round. On Los Serranos South, Canyons (COC) fired a 4-under par score (366) while Mt San Antonio shot 15-over par (385).

Canyons (COC) won the SoCals with a two round total of 726 in the 36-hole one day event where par was 730 and they were the only team to make or break par on the South course. The SoCal Championship is always an endurance contest and there are not very many teams as good as Canyons (COC) in said format.

Mt San Antonio finished 2nd (732), Santa Barbara City finished 3rd (739), and Cypress finished 4th (740) to complete the team qualifiers for next Monday's State Championships at Silverado Resort & Span in Napa. This year there are two teams from the Western State Conference and two teams from the Orange Empire Conference qualifying for the State Championships.
