Cougars Win Again, Keep Conference Streak

By Jesse Muñoz/COC Sports Information Director    

PASADENA — College of the Canyons got back on track during its return to conference play on Monday, carding a five-man score of 370 to top the eight-team field at Brookside Golf Course and maintain its unblemished conference mark. 

Canyons (72-6) has now won each of its first three Western State Conference (WSC) tournaments. The only tournaments in which the Cougars haven't taken the top spot were the 3C2A Southern California Preview and 3C2A State Preview tournaments. COC finished second and sixth, respectively, at those events.

On Monday, the Canyons tally of 370 led runner-up Citrus (372), third-place Ventura (374) and Glendale (379) across the top four spots.

COC also boasted the top two individuals in the field with sophomore Paul Grimonpon taking medalist honors with a four-under-par round of 68, and freshman Ethan Posthumus in second at 69.

Hugo Boyer finished at 77 in a tie for 18th place with Owen Crockett and Rob Scribner each shooting rounds of 78 in a tie for 21st. The freshman trio rounded out the scoring for Canyons. Ryan Giardino finished at 80, good for 31st in the field of 48, but saw his score scratched. 

The Cougars continue conference play Monday, April 1 at the WSC event hosted by Antelope Valley College. Tee time is set for 11 a.m. from Antelope Valley Country Club.
