2005: Rollins on roll as it begins three-peat bid
Once again, Charlotte Campbell and Rollins seem to be hitting their stride at just the right time.
Campbell, the two-time defending national champion, won her second consecutive NCAA Division II South Regional title with a record score of 1-under 215 (70-73-72)
May 3 at Lone Palm Golf Club in Lakeland, Fla., and teammates Marie-Pierre Bernier and Vanessa Vela finished third and fourth to lead the Tars to their third South Region title in a row. Rollins also will be seeking its third consecutive national title
May 11-14 at the University of New Mexico’s Championship Course in Albuquerque, N.M.
The Tars, who have not finished behind a Division II opponent this year, posted a tournament-record score of 13-over 877, 48 strokes ahead of Florida Southern, which rallied on the final three holes to edge Lynn University of Boca Raton, Fla., 925-928. The top two teams in each regional advanced to the national finals.
Florida Southern, led by runner-up Pamela Feggans (2-over 218), trailed by four shots with three holes to go before the Moccasins rallied, gaining four shots on the par-3 16th, then posting two pars on the final hole to a pair of double bogeys for Lynn.
44North: Nebraska-Omaha, led by individual medalist Tanis Hastmann (77-83-82), defeated Minnesota State Mankato on the second playoff hole to capture the North title at Cedar Valley Golf Course in Winona, Minn. With the best four of five scores counting in the playoff, the teams tied on the
first hole. On the second, Nebraska-Omaha was 1 under to Minnesota State’s 1-over total. Each team had finished regulation at 128-over 992. Both advanced to the national finals.
