The College of the Canyons spring sports teams had a stellar week with baseball, golf and softball going undefeated, while track and field made a strong showing at one of Southern California’s premier meets.

Men’s Golf

Sidney Wolf and the No. 1-ranked men’s golf team continued their dominance last Monday as the team won its seventh Western State Conference (WSC) Tournament and eighth tournament overall. As a team, Canyons shot a 9-over 369, beating host Citrus College by 15 strokes, for a season-high margin of victory.

Wolf, a freshman, earned medalist honors at San Dimas Canyon Golf Course, and topped the leaderboard for the third time this season after carding a 70. For his efforts, he was named the Western State Conference Male Athlete of the Week, while leading the conference with his 71.3 average.

Canyons will travel to Oakmont Country Club today for its eighth conference tournament.

 

Track and Field

Freshman Tim White continued to blow away his competition as he won the triple jump at the Mount San Antonio Relays on Saturday. White leaped 49 feet, 10 1/2 inches to beat out the second-place finisher, Michael Lewis from San Joaquin Delta College, by more than two feet, and never posted a jump lower than anyone in the 13-man field.

White, who was 1/2 inch short of his season-best jump, is ranked second in the nation among community college triple jumpers. He also came in third place in the high jump after clearing 6 feet, 6 inches.

COC saw three new season-best marks posted by members of the squad. Freshman sprinter Andrew Sanchez ran the 200-meter dash in 22.46 seconds to shave .10 seconds off his fastest time of the year. Freshman Jessica Gill ran 1 minute, .82 second in the 400-meter dash to rank 11th in the Western State Conference in the event. Sophomore Nouneh Assadouria turned in a season-best mark in the triple jump, with a leap of 33 feet, 4 3/4 inches. Assadouria finished in seventh place at the conference championships in 2012 with a jump of 34 feet, 3 1/2 inches.

 

Baseball

College of the Canyons baseball continues to sit in third place behind second-place Bakersfield College and first-place Glendale College in the Western State Conference, South standings, after going 2-0 this week.

Canyons (18-12, 13-4 WSC South), the 13th-ranked team in Southern California, beat Citrus College (12-19, 6-14 WSC South) 4-3 and 15-3 in a home and away series this week.

Third baseman Trey Williams went 4-of-7 during the two games with three RBIs and two home runs, one in each game. Williams is third on the team with his .343 batting average, and leads the Cougars with five home runs this season.

COC is currently two games out of first place in the conference, going into a crucial week with first-place Glendale and second-place Bakersfield playing in a home and away series.

Canyons will play L.A. Valley College in a home and away series on Tuesday and Thursday and will host West L.A. College on Saturday, with just two weeks remaining in the regular season.

 

Softball

Canyons (26-7-2, 14-0 WSC Blue) defeated Bakersfield College, 8-2, and 9-1 and 11-0 in a doubleheader against Santa Monica College.

This week will be a good test for the Cougars as they travel to second-place Citrus College on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a doubleheader on Thursday against L.A. Valley. COC will finish out the week with a non-conference game against No. 3 Mount San Antonio College in Walnut.
