SBCC had five players in the top 10 on Monday with all five between 80 and 82 in WSC women's golf tournament No. 7 at par-71 Brookside GC in Pasadena.

The Vaqueros captured their seventh straight WSC tourney title and stayed perfect with a 35-0 record. They're 61-1 for the year and 160-2 over the last two seasons.

Santa Barbara totaled 322 strokes to beat Canyons by 15 shots. Bakersfield was third at 351.

Stephanie Farouze and Lauren Calvin led the Vaqueros with 9-over 80s that tied for fifth. Vanessa Watkins and Elle Gaston tied for eighth at 81. It was Gaston's second-lowest score of the year. Jessica Safford  was 10th with an 82.

"I was happy with our balance," said 18th-year coach Chuck Melendez. "We had a lot of good rounds going, then we had a few big numbers at the end. Lauren had a good round, shooting 1-over 36 on the back nine."

The Vaqueros return to action on Monday in WSC No. 8 at Simi Hills GC, starting at 11:30 a.m.
