College of the Canyons freshmen Joanna Roecker and Cassandra Lee both turned in scores of 79 to lead the Cougars to a second place team finish at the Western State Conference (WSC) event hosted by Glendale College at Brookside Golf Course on Monday.
Roecker and Lee tied for the individual third place mark, trailing only Georgia Shevitt (77) of Moorpark College and Michaela Klundt (72) of Antelope Valley College.
In the team standings, Santa Barbara City College (322) won the event, followed by Canyons (337) and third place Bakersfield (351).
AVC (359), Moorpark (360) and Citrus (382) ranked four through six to round out the field.
For Roecker, Monday’s round marked the fourth straight event in which the freshman, who goes by JoJo, has finished in the top four of the individual rankings. She has also carded scores of 79 or better on three of the last four tournaments.
