(Santa Barbara, CA) Mt. SAC golfers Cole Albert and Tyler Poepping each shot scores of 75 in the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) State Preview Invitational on Monday April 9 at Sandpiper Golf Club.
The Santa Barbara par-72 course is a beautiful 7,159-yard beachside layout that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and will host the CCCAA State Championships in Goleta on May 14.
"Cole and Tyler did very well and kept it together very well," Mt. SAC Men's Golf coach Greg Osbourne said.
"I'm very proud of their play."
Cypress, who leads the Orange Empire Conference standings, won the 12-team tourney, with Mt. SAC finishing eighth.
"This was the first time we were on this course and we didn't do too bad," Osbourne said.
The Mounties will play in the last Orange Empire Conference match of the season at Tieras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Margarita on Monday April 23, which will be hosted by Saddleback College.
The OEC Championships will be held a week later at the Los Serranos Golf Club in Chino Hills on Monday April 30.
