GOLFWEEK STAFF

The NCAA Division II Women’s Championship is becoming a one-team event.

Rollins College won its first Division II national title in 2003 and hasn’t looked back since. They won four consecutive titles from 2003-2006, finished second in 2007, and won their fifth Division II national championship Friday with a seven-shot win over Nova Southeastern.

The Tars were led by freshman Joanna Coe, whose 1-under 287 beat Florida Southern’s Heather Burgner by four shots over and broke the four-round championship scoring record by five shots. Rollins’ 29-over 1181 also broke the championship’s previous team scoring record by four shots, which they set in 2005.

Nova Southeastern finished second at 36-over 1188, and the next closest team was Grand Valley State which finished 33 shots behind in third.

Coe’s teammate, Cristina Gugler, finished in third at 8-over 296. Senior Laura Fourdraine tied for seventh at 12-over 300. Fourdraine had a hole-in-one on the 160-yard par-3 seventh in the third round.

Final scores with relation to par from the NCAA Division II Women’s Championship, played May 13-16 at the par-72, 6,327-yard Memorial Park Golf Course (Women Championship) in Houston, Texas (Note: y-played as an individual):
