Cole Smith and Fanny Johansson each helped their teams bring home hardware last week in championship competitions.

Johansson won the individual title and led the Santa Barbara City College women’s golf team to the Community College State Championship at Tracy Country Club.

Smith was Dos Pueblo’s top finisher in the Chargers’ run to a runner-up finish at the CIF Division 2 cross country finals at Mt. San Antonio College. The finish qualified the team to the State Meet.

Their performances earned them Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Athlete of the Week honors.

Johansson, a freshman from Sweden, fired a 5-over par 151 (74-77) to win the individual state championship by eight shots. The Vaqueros finished four shots ahead of Fullerton for the team crown.

Smith covered the demanding 3-mile Mt. SAC course in 15:00 to finish in sixth place. The senior and his Dos Pueblos teammates will be running at the CIF State Championships at Woodward Park in Fresno this Saturday.

Athletes named honorable mention for this week’s awards include: Addi Zerrenner (Dos Pueblos cross country), Lindsey Smith (Westmont soccer), Phoebe Grunt (UCSB volleyball), Ian Roberts (SBCC cross country), Anthony Carter (Bishop Diego football), Aiden Williams (Bishop Diego football) and Eric Salas (San Marcos cross country).
