For the second straight year, the Cañada College women's golf team has won the Northern California Community College Championship.

On Tuesday, the Colts qualified four golfers for the California Community College Athletic Association Womens Golf State Championship to be held Nov. 18-19 at the Tracy Golf and Country Club. Cañada finshed third in last year's state championships held at Temucla Creek Inn Resort.

Cañada's Shannon Wong, who finished 13th at last year's state championship, shot an 11-over-par 155 to finish first at this year's Northern California championship. Wong was the only golfer to break par either day, firing a 71 on the second day of the tournament.

Kristi Wong and Sarah Rotter each shot a 162 for Cañada, as they finished the tournament tied for third. As a team, the Colts simply overwhelmed the competition, firing a tournament best 646. Modesto Junior College finished a distant second with a final score of 690.

Shannon Wong, Kristi Wong, Rotter and Laura Arellano will all represent Cañada at the state championship.
