Rocha Top 10 at SCIAC # 1

SAN BERNARDINOSamantha Rocha was the highlight for the women's golf team at SCIAC # 1, shooting 16-over 160 at the two-round event at Arrowhead Country Club on Saturday and Sunday.

Rocha, a junior co-captain from Downey, has been Oxy's No. 1 golfer for two years. 

"Sam has started off the year very well, winning her first competition in the Whittier Invite and then following that up with a top-10 finish this weekend," Oxy head coach Will Morris said. 

Rocha is back and playing well after missing the final month of last year due to injury.

"It's nice to have a healthy Sam back leading our team," Morris said. 

Nicole Henderson was Oxy's second best at 179, Katy Uchiyama was third at 180, Stephnie Lin was fourth at 184 and Izzy Ruiz was fifth at 187.

Oxy's looking to get back on the right track after missing players with injuries and illness. The Tigers are back in action at the Regal Invitational on March 12-13 at Sunset Hills CC.
