The Antelope Valley College women’s golf team won its third straight competition with a victory over Western State Conference opponents at the Alisal River Golf Course in Solvang on Monday.
The Marauders shot 369 as a team to take first place. College of the Canyons took second with a 378, Bakersfield took third with a 408, and Citrus came in fourth with a score of 429.
The 5,700-yard course, which hosted regional play three years ago, proved challenging with 15 mph winds.
Four-time Golden League individual champion Arlene Salvador took first place with a 7-over 79.
“Arlene battled today without her best stuff and showed a lot of character to still finish first as an individual,” AVC coach Patrick Londono said in an AVC press release.
Madison Schafer followed with an 85 to finish fourth as an individual.
“Madison did a great job battling through adversity on a challenging golf course today,” Londono said.
AVC’s Vashti Rachal contributed a 101 and Adrianna Rosales scored a 104. Ayanna Langdale and Jasmin Carrillo make great progress as well.
““This team is playing for one another, which is all you can ask for as a coach,” Londono said. “We have a lot of work and improvement ahead, but I’m proud of where we are at this point.”
The Marauders are now 15-0 on the season for their best start in school history.
They next play at Cypress Ridge Golf Course in San Luis Obispo on Monday.
