There's been a theme throughout the Los Padres League girls golf season, with Cabrillo and Santa Ynez battling each other all year long.

Cabrillo has consistently held the upper hand.

That didn't change much Monday. Though, something did change. It wasn't Santa Ynez that finished second at the Los Padres League Tournament at the Santa Maria Country Club. Rather, it was Orcutt Academy.

Cabrillo clinched the LPL team championship with a team score of 249, well in front of second-place Orcutt Academy and its score of 261. This is the third straight LPL title for Cabrillo.

All of the golfers wore pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

"It was a beautiful day for golf and Santa Maria Country Club really takes care of us as well," Santa Maria coach Jay Cheney said. "It's a great facility, probably one of the best on the Central Coast."

Santa Ynez, second in the league standings, finished third with a team score of 263. 

Cabrillo's Britney McCune had a stellar day on the SMCC course, leading the Conquistadores to victory. The senior shot a 45, landing medalist honors.

Lompoc's Kendal Martin and Cabrillo's Kelsey Bruner weren't far behind as each shot a 46 on the day. 

Cabrillo had three golfers shoot sub-50 scores on Monday: McCune, Bruner and Ashlyn Wiswall, who shot a 49. Alexa McCune came in with a score of 54 and Thea Regan shot 55 to round out the scoring for Cabrillo.

Ashley McClung led Orcutt Academy with a score of 48 and Rochelle McClung came in at 49. Karli Lundberg shot a 53, Taylor Heath scored a 55 and Madi Birch shot a 56 for Orcutt Academy's team score of 261. 

Santa Ynez was led by Madison Johnson and her score of 47, the only Pirate in under 50 on Monday. Johnson was followed by Gracie Church (52), Erinn Callaghan (53), Jordan Hartley (54) and Olivia Cortopassi (57) for a team score of 263.

Morro Bay was fourth with a score of 280, Lompoc was fifth at 286, Santa Maria finished in sixth at 309 and Nipomo was seventh with a score of 330. 

Morro Bay was led by Lauren Augusta's 51. 

For Lompoc, Martin was followed by teammates Marina Zellers and Ruby Gonzales, who each shot 56, Hannah Larsh's 62 and Jocelyn Bocanegra's 66. 

Santa Maria had a pair of golfers in the 50s, led by Briana Nunez and her score of 57. Marlen Reyes shot a 58. Maritza Reyes came in with a 52 and Carmen Salinas and Alicia Olivera each shot 66. 

"I was pleased with how my girls played," Cheney said. "Their average scores are coming down, unfortunately the season is about over. With the way they've been playing, I am very positive about our outlook for next year."

Nipomo was led by Brooke Panzardi and her score of 52, followed by Lilly Brommitt (64), Beyonce Diaz (68), Jana Slover (70) and Kara Mitchell (76).
