COC gearing up for the postseason.

 

 

Men’s Golf

The No. 1-ranked College of the Canyons men’s golf team continued to dominate its competition with another victory at the squad’s eighth Western State Conference tournament. Canyons carded a 365 on Monday afternoon at the Oakmont Country Club, improving to a perfect 48-0 record in conference play. Canyons beat out second-place finisher Santa Barbara College by seven strokes and third-place finisher Glendale College by 20 strokes. Sydney Wolf and Jake Katz continued to lead the Cougars, as they posted scores of 70, which landed them on top of the leaderboard after 18 holes.

COC will close out the regular season today with two rounds of 18 holes at Soule Park Golf Course, before traveling to Costa Mesa Country Club on May 6 for the Southern California Championships.

 

Track and Field

The College of the Canyons men’s and women’s track and field teams competed in the Western State Conference Prelims on Friday afternoon at Ventura College. Canyons had seven student-athletes advance to the Western State Conference Finals, which will be held on Friday at Moorpark College.

Several events at the Western State Conference prelim meet were considered finals and three Cougars did well enough to go to the Southern California prelims on May 4. Sophomore Nouneh Assadouria turned in a career-best mark in the long jump, with a leap of 16 feet 7 3/4 inches, landing her in fourth place. Sophomore Jill Hurley cleared 9 feet, 1/4 inch in the pole vault, good for sixth place and freshman Tim White finished in fifth place in the long jump with a distance of 22 feet, 6 1/2 inches.

 

Baseball

The College of the Canyons baseball team went 2-1 this week, in a very tight race for the final automatic bid that the second place team in the Western State Conference, South Division, will receive at the end of the regular season.

Canyons (20-13, 15-6 WSC South) dropped its first game of the week to L.A. Valley 8-3, but recovered with a 9-2 win over the same team on Thursday and a 9-3 victory against West L.A. College.

First baseman Quincy Quintero went 5-of-8 during the last two COC home games and stole one base. He is currently second on the team with a .365 batting average and leads the team with 10 doubles.

COC is currently one game out of second place in the conference standings behind Bakersfield College (24-10, 16-6 WSC South). If Bakersfield College and Canyons win out, with each team having two and three games left respectively, both teams will finish with an identical 18-6 record in conference play and in a tie for second place. If that plays out, COC will take over second place because the Cougars lead Bakersfield in the season series 3-1.

 

Softball

The COC softball team clinched the Western State Conference, Blue Division championship earlier this week with a win over Citrus College.

Canyons (29-8-2, 17-0 WSC Blue) added three more conference victories to their unblemished record with a come-from-behind-win against Citrus College and a 9-1 and 16-4 doubleheader victory against L.A. Valley.

No. 15 COC closed out the week with a tough non-conference matchup with No. 3 Mt. San Antonio. The Cougars took a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning after pitcher Kimmie Lockhart hit a three-run home run, but COC’s defense gave up three runs to the Mounties in the seventh and the eighth and the Cougars lost 4-3.

COC closes out the regular season on Tuesday, as they host L.A. Mission.

 

Swim and Dive

The COC swim and dive team broke six school records at the Western State Conference Finals this week.

Including three relay times that were shattered, Shayla Austin broke records in the 50 and 100-yard freestyle and Matthew Stulp turned in a new school-best time in the 200-yard individual freestyle
